“Finding and signing talented European developers is something we are dedicated to at 505 Games,“ 505 Games’ MD Ian Howe commented. “We are delighted to be working with Creative Patterns to be able to deliver thrilling and innovative Europe-grown talent to the whole of Europe and beyond.”
505 Games rose to prominence in the UK market after publishing a string of licensed Japanese titles that struck a chord with hardcore gamers. Hits to date include Michigan: Report from Hell, Wild Arms 4, Bujingai and Steambot Chronicles.
Following its success with Cooking Mama on DS, the publisher will be releasing the Wii next month. It will be publishing its first PS3 and Xbox 360 title, Armoured Core 4, in June.
