Konami takes over Japanese publishing for Infogrames
An agreement between Konami and Infogrames was announced today which will allow Konami to publish certain Infogrames titles throughout the Japanese market. In an attempt to extend into more markets, Infogrames will turn over publishing rights to such games as V-Rally 3 and NASCAR Heat over to Konami.
Bruno Bonnell, chairman and CEO of Infogrames, was quoted as saying, "We are delighted to have entered into an agreement with one of the leading Japanese distributors. We believe that Konami's extensive distribution network throughout Japan will significantly enhance our ability to reach the all-important Japanese gaming audience with our products."
None of the specifics of the agreement were made public, nor were any games except for V-Rally 3 and NASCAR Heat announced that would fall under this agreement.
