Following the release of Dead or Alive V, Tecmo Koei has chosen Mindscape as its Australian and New Zealand distribution partner.
Tecmo was previously distributed by Australian companies on a title by title basis. It’s great news for Mindscape, locking down a deal with all the publisher’s titles for the entire region with recent news of competitor All Interactive Entertainment nailing a couple of big guns of its own.
Yasutomo Watanabe, GM of Tecmo Europe, said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Mindscape. We are certain that our collaboration for our upcoming titles will help expand our brands and grow our fanbase in Australia and New Zealand.”
Tonia Valesco, GM of Mindscape Asia Pacific, added: “Partnering with a publisher as popular and promising as Tecmo Koei has come as a natural progression for Mindscape.”
“Tecmo Koei’s catalogue and its league of diehard fans are testament to the brand’s power and we are excited to be a part of this. We are confident we will grow the Tecmo Koei brand in Australia and are looking forward to releasing many hit titles in the new future.”
Mindscape’s first Tecmo release under the new partnership will be Warriors Orochi 3: Hyper for the Wii U.
