CentreSoft closes deal to distribute Metal Gear Solid V

CentreSoft is braced for a busy September after signing Konami.

Konami – which previously handled distribution internally – will launch Metal Gear Solid V and Pro Evolution Soccer 2016.

CentreSoft is already handling the launches of FIFA 16, LEGO Dimensions, Mad Max, Destiny: The Taken King, Skylanders and Tearaway during the month.

CentreSoft will manage all of Konami’s back catalogue and future titles.

As Konami looks to grow its UK presence with the likes of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and the revitalised PES series, it was essential we had a distribution partner capable of providing an unrivalled level of service,” said Konami’s senior channel manager for Northern Europe Reece Cummings.

CentreSoft ticked all these boxes – and more – and we look forward to workingclosely with them on these titles and many more in the future.”

CentreSoft commercial director Margaret Pearson added: I am delighted that we are able to further cement on our excellent relationship with Konami.

"It has some of the most iconic gaming brands in the industry and we are very much looking forward to developing an even closer working relationship for the UK market.”
