Former US THQ executive, Robert Neilson, has launched a new multi-platform videogame publishing house called Mamba Games, writes GI.

The new publisher promises six Microsoft Simulator X add-ons to be released over two years, as well as The Lost Crown: Ghost Hunting Adventure.

Mamba will also be publishing Matchman, which will be released in Q2 for DS, Wii and PSN.

“Due to the difficult economical situation at present throughout the world, we have had to carefully asses each project and the risk margins in significant detail, but we are delighted to have such a strong portfolio for the first two quarters of 2009,” said Neilson.

“We are incredibly excited about The Lost Crown due to the stunning reviews the game has and we are proud to partner with such an excellent developer for this product.

“The pre- press from Matchman has also been incredible especially since we are close to Gold status and will be releasing exclusive footage from the Nintendo DS version shortly.”
