XSEED Games and Marvelous Entertainment came together before to bring the PSP action-RPG Valhalla Knights to North America, but now the two companies are officially full-time partners. The two companies have entered into a “strategic” co-publishing partnership mutual to both parties. XSEED gets to bring Marvelous Entertainment’s portfolio of titles to the North American market, while Marvelous establishes a US publishing presence. And of course, the first title to be announced under this agreement is none other than Valhalla Knights 2, which is currently due for release this fall on PSP.

“We’re pleased to be able to announce our new expansion into the largest gaming market in the world, the United States. I’m confident that together with our co-publishing agreement with XSEED Games, we will be able to hit the ground running as we ramp up our US operations,” stated Yasuhiro Wada, Managing Director of Marvelous Entertainment.

Jun Iwasaki, President of XSEED Games, shared Mr. Wada’s sentiments. “We’re honored to get the chance to partner with Marvelous Entertainment as they establish and grow their presence in the US market. They have an exceptional library of original and creative games many of which should prove a hit with Western gamers.”

“Valhalla Knights 2 will carry on the legacy its predecessor established as a beloved game in any RPG player’s library,” remarked Ken Berry, Marketing and Sales at XSEED Games. “We appreciate this game being the first in our co-publishing partnership with Marvelous Entertainment as it will help to set the quality standard high for all future games coming out of this deal.”
