Mobile and social games to be expanded in the coming year.
Marvelous AQL, responsible for the recently released Muramasa Rebirth and Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita, has revealed that XSEED is now Marvelous USA, and will include XSEED Games, which handles console and handheld platform releases, and Marvelous Online, which handles mobile and social games.
In an effort to expand the latter, Marvelous Online will be adding the Atlus Online team to their operations. Marvelous acquired Atlus Online earlier this year.
XSEED Games president and CEO Shinichi Suzuki, who is now president and CEO of Marvelous USA, stated that, “Marvelous USA unifies our US operations under the global Marvelous brand while giving our customers topnotch products and support for both traditional and online social and mobile games.
“Our XSEED Games console and PC brand will continue to offer the quality games and service for which it is known, and Marvelous Online gives us expanded reach into mobile and online social gaming markets.”
While executive vice president of XSEED Games Ken Berry will remain, Marvelous Online will be headed up by senior director Tatsuya Nishioka.
