Centresoft snaps up Majesco account

Centresoft has signed an exclusive deal to become Majesco’s distribution partner in the UK.

The firm will handle the release of Majesco’s major new movie tie-in, Night At The Museum 2, as well as future titles that include Major Minor’s Majestic March and Cake Mania 2.

Centresoft commercial director Margeret Pearson said: We are pleased to represent Majesco at retail.

Majesco has a great line-up of products for 2009 and we are delighted that this ambitious publisher has recognised the value that Centresoft can bring to its business in the UK.”

Other Majesco titles due this year include classic light-gun shooter Mad Dog McCree Gunslinger Pack, NES-remake The Boy and His Blob, and the Go Play series, which are all set for release on Wii.

Meanwhile DS consumers can look forward to motorcycle racer Powerbike, the nature-inspired Puffins Island Adventure and virtual 3D board game Drama Queens.

Managing director of Majesco Europe Jason Dutton added: Partnering with Centresoft gives us the solid paths to retail that we will need in order to build on our presence in the UK market.

We’ve got over 30 titles launching throughout this year, including hugely significant licences such as the official tie-in for Twentieth Century Fox’s highly-anticipated Night At The Museum 2, so our distribution network absolutely needs to be world class.

Centresoft is the obvious choice to service this.”
Majesco last month announced to MCV that it would set up as a direct European publisher.

The firm, which was responsible for ‘discovering’ the multi-million selling Cooking Mama and publishing the game in the US, is focusing its efforts on releasing games for Nintendo formats.
