PlayV has announced a new partnership with German publisher S.A.D that will see the UK distributor handle the company's titles when they are released on UK shores.
The first titles to be included in the new deal are S.A.D's PurpleHills range, a selection of casual games that have become popular in German-speaking territories.
In Germany over 200 games have been released on PC under S.A.D publishing label since it was launched
This is a fantastic opportunity for PlayV,” said UK general manager Luiz Ferreira. The PurpleHills brand is a well-respected and recognised label in Germany.
We are looking forward to releasing these titles here in the UK and believe that they offer the casual gamer something new, but at the same time something that is recognisable to them and easy for them to pick up and play, but very difficult to put down afterwards.”
PlayV will be releasing the Nintendo DS versions of such PurpleHills games later this year, including Around The World In 80 Days on October 30th and Titanic Mystery on November 7th. Additional titles will be release on PC in Q1 2010.
