Namco Bandai and Trion Worlds have signed an agreement for the retail distribution for Defiance.
The game will be distributed in North America and Latin America by Namco Bandai in April. The platforms confirmed so far are PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
“We’re delighted to be working with NAMCO BANDAI, a great company with a proven track record in bringing big games successfully to the market thanks to their great distribution network and excellent relationship with retailers,” said Keri Taylor, Director of Sales, Trion Worlds.
“With its direct connection with the Syfy television show, Defiance is breaking new ground in dynamic storytelling within videogames,” says Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at Namco Bandai Games America Inc.
The game combines the intense action of a console third-person shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online game), while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.
Defiance is scheduled to be available on April 2, 2013.
