Rising Star Games, Europeâ€™s most prolific publisher of Japanese-originated games, will begin 2010 with a bang, as the publisher announces its first eight titles for its first quarter of next year.
â€œWith seven games released from February to April, weâ€™re about to embark on Rising Star Gamesâ€™ busiest period to date,â€ says Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. â€œAnd itâ€™s a real case of quality and quantity â€“ with Fragile Dreams (the title known as â€˜Fragileâ€™ in Japan), Half-Minute Hero and our first PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 titles, itâ€™ll be a brilliant start to what will be our best year ever.â€
Highlights from February include the mind-meltingly mental Half-Minute Hero on PlayStation Portable. This brilliantly original title fuses classic gaming mechanics with bite-sized 30-second gaming to create one of the formatâ€™s most audacious twists on the RPG genre. Animal Kororo, a ludicrously cute puzzle game will be published on DS.
March sees the release of Fragile Dreams, one of 2010â€™s most anticipated Wii titles. A game of unrivalled atmosphere, charm and beauty, it looks set to be the formatâ€™s definitive entry into the adventure genre. Avalon Code, My World My Way and Rune Factory Frontier complete a busy month for Rising Star Games.Rising Star Games 2010 release schedule so far:
