Atlus and Frozenbyte partner for an upcoming 2011 digital title
Atlus is known for some of the PS3’s greatest hits including Demon’s Souls and 3D Dot Game Heroes. Frozenbyte is known for the award-winning Trine. A partnership between the two? You have us listening.
“In a short amount of time, Frozenbyte has established itself as a premiere international developer, delivering original, critically-acclaimed interactive entertainment,” stated Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atlus. “Their last release, the cooperative physics-based action-platformer Trine, achieved arguably more acclaim and success than anybody expected, and left an indelible mark on the industry as to how new technology can help completely redefine a classic gaming genre. We’re incredibly excited for the opportunity to help them bring their next impressive project to the international gaming community.”
“We couldn’t be happier signing our new game with Atlus. As an independent developer we felt that partnering with a publisher who is flexible and shares our vision of the game was the best way to bring the game out to a large audience,” said Lauri Hyvärinen, CEO of Frozenbyte. “We can’t wait to unveil the mystery – I’m confident that we’re creating one of the best titles of 2011!”
Not many details are given. In fact, nothing at all really. What we do know is that more will be revealed next week during E3 so we’ll be sure to give you all the update live from the convention floor. For now, let the speculation begin.
