Contrary to widespread reports, MCV has confirmed that Rising Star Games has once again secured the rights to publish Marvelous Entertainment’s ongoing video games catalogue.
However, a share restructure means Marvelous has sold its controlling stake in RSG to Japanese publisher Intergrow, which also part-owns publisher Gamebridge.
Develop was one of the publications suggesting that Rising Star Games had lost the rights to publish Marvelous Entertainment goods, with the Tokyo-headquartered group turning to a licensing model for future overseas deals.
But the new agreement ensures that popular brands such as Harvest Moon continue to be released under the RSG label in the UK.
Tokyo-headquartered Marvelous owns various studios and businesses around the world. It absorbed game developer Runtime Inc back in 2008, and owns recording studio Delfi sound, and animation studio Artland.
