Why, it was just last month that we published our review of of XSEED’s first iOS game—Ark of the Ages —and now they’ve gone and rebranded themselves on us. Marvelous USA, Inc. is the new U.S.-based publishing operation of Japanese publisher MarvelousAQL Inc., and will oversee all the company’s U.S. operation. Marvelous Online will be the brand for mobile and online social games.
Marvelous USA will be headed by President and CEO Shinichi Suzuki, who held the same titles for XSEED Games.
The XSEED Games team comprises Marvelous USA, and will continue to manage the XSEED Games brand for all current and planned XSEED Games titles. More relevant to iOS gamers Marvelous Online will expand its XSEED mobile and online games business with the acquisition of the ATLUS Online Division, purchased earlier this year from Index Digital Media, Inc.
“Marvelous USA unifies our US operations under the global Marvelous brand while giving our customers topnotch products and support for both traditional and online social and mobile games,” said Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of Marvelous USA. “Our XSEED Games console and PC brand will continue to offer the quality games and service for which it is known, and Marvelous Online gives us expanded reach into mobile and online social gaming markets.”
