Rising Star Partners With Aksys For North American Distribution

Rising Star Partners With Aksys For North American Distribution

The European publisher Rising Star Games announced that it will be partnering up with Aksys to exclusively distribute its titles to North America this year. This includes the Xbox 360 shoot’em-up title, Akai Katana.

Rising Star had announced its intentions to insert itself into the North American market after opening a California branch back in January 2011. Recently, they absorbed what remained of the Marvelous USA publishing business and hired Midway Games veteran Phil Robinson. He is now the vice president of operations or the North American office.

Aksys is best known for the publishing of niche titles such as Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and the Record of Agarest War Zero series. The first title that the partnership plans to distribute is Akai Katana, the Tokyo-based shoot’em-up title by Cave.
