Rising Star Games just announced a partnership with Aksys Games for distribution of Zero Escape PS4 releases.
Rising Star Games stepped up to help distribute Zero Escape: The Nonary Games and Zero Time Dilemma on PS4. Aksys has had some trouble with physical releases in Europe not being available at large scale retailers or online stores. Many releases like Tokyo Xanadu have sold out rather quickly with no new print run in sight. This will be great for fans of the games in Europe. I hope this turns out well for both parties as these releases deserve to be owned physically.
Zero Escape: The Nonary Games will be available from September 8 for £49.99 and Zero Time Dilemma will be available from September 22 for £44.99. Lee Skittrell, Marketing Manager at Rising Star Games commented on this deal:
“Rising Star Games published Virtue’s Last Reward in Europe and we are massive fans of the series. We felt that gamers in Europe didn’t have much of an opportunity to obtain the physical retail version of The Nonary Games when it was released earlier this year, so we’ve stepped up to secure more much-deserved visibility at European retail. At the same time, we are also bringing to market the final chapter in the Zero Escape series Zero Time Dilemma which will be exclusively distributed by Rising Star Games across Europe”.
I’ve asked Rising Star Games for a comment about the Vita release for The Nonary Games and will update this story once I get a response.
Zero Escape: The Nonary Games and Zero Time Dilemma are available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Windows.
