Rising Star’s managing director, Martin Defries, has said the firm will be taking control over the US publishing arm of Marvelous. Speaking with MCV, Defries said: “We were given an opportunity to take over the US publishing business of our former parent company Marvelous Entertainment, to rebrand that as Rising Star Games Inc and to build a successful subsidiary.” Defries also said Rising Star has “an existing publisher in the US” with “strong roots into the market,” but didn’t reveal the name of the firm. There’s no word at present on how this will affect Marvelous USA’s publishing deal with Xseed Games, which is owned by Marvelous AQL. Rising Star USA’s very first North American title will be Akai Katana for Xbox 360.
