British publisher Rising Star Games has opened an office in the US.
Rising Star Games Inc is based in California and will release its first title – shooter Akai Katana – on Xbox 360 in Q2 2012.
The firm has also opened Rising Star Games Digital, which will handle downloadable releases.
“After eight years of fantastic success in bringing the best Eastern games to Europe, we’re ready to expand our business, engaging more consumers than ever before in more territories and on digital platforms,” said Rising Star MD Martin Defries.
“Rising Star Games Digital has been something we’ve been working on for a while. We envisage a huge growth in downloadable product over the coming years, and intend to play a big part shaping the future development of our exciting industry.”
The news is great news for Cave fans, amongst others, who will finally have an official means to get hold of the developer's Western releases.
