Capcom has confirmed that it has chosen THQ as its new distribution partner in Australia and New Zealand.
The news comes following the closure of Australian distributor Red Ant after it went into administration.
At the time, Red Ant’s key clients Capcom and Konami said they were confident a means to distribute their games in the country would be found – while THQ’s IceStorm team said they would happily lend a hand.
Now, THQ Asia Pacific will handle for the distribution, sales and marketing for Capcom’s releases in this territory, effective immediately.
The deal starts with upcoming releases Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5.
