News has just come through that Capcom distribution, formerly handled in ANZ by THQ, is jumping ship to All Interactive Entertainment.
The move will see Capcom’s entire range, including the hotly-anticipated Resident Evil 6, be sold, marketed and distributed through the Australian-based publisher / distributor.
With THQ now focusing on its own IP entirely, Namco Bandai remains the only sattelite office of a larger publisher which routinely takes on distribution responsibilities from other publishers’ franchises, with the number of distributors in the region spiking and competition heating up.
All Interactive Entertainment’s first cabs off the rank for Capcom will be the October releases of Resident Evil 6 and the Vita version of Street Fighter x Tekken. AIE also handles Bethesda’s titles locally.
