Microids has just announced the signing of an agreement with the prestigious Japanese video game company Taito to produce two new titles based on Taito’s famous franchises.
The two games, already in production, will launch in 2022.
Being developed by experienced studios, these games will be a great addition to the Microids portfolio and greatly contribute to the company’s growth in international territories, especially in Japan.
Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Microids, said:
“Microids international development strategy is going strong and we are proud to collaborate with Taito. We are delighted the Japanese giant fully entrusted us with the development of these titles. We cannot wait to unveil the two projects we’re working on and we strongly believe they will surprise a lot of people!”
Mr. Katsuhiko Iwaki, President and Representative Director of Taito Corporation, added:
“We have full confidence in Microids capability to revive two of our licenses through the titles they will offer in the coming months. Gamers will be amazed to experience these games come back on today’s consoles.”
