SCEE has today announced that Barcelona-based game development studio Novarama Technology had signed a deal which will see the company, currently working on the PSVita launch title Reality Fighters, developing games exclusively for SCEE and Sony platforms.
The studio, which was founded in 2003 is the developer behind Invizimals franchise on PSP.
Under the terms of the deal, Reality Fighters will remain exclusive to the PSVita and will be published by SCEE. Moving forward, Novarama will also begin the development of new titles for Sony platforms.
“This strategic alliance with one of Europe’s brightest developers, a developer with unrivalled experience of augmented reality games shows our determination to work with creative and innovative developers,” explained Michael Denny, Senior Vice President, SCE Worldwide Studios Europe. “I am very excited about what Novarama have planned and look forward to being able to share it with everybody.”
Novarama’s CEO Dani Sánchez-Crespo was understandably pleased about the agreement.
“For a studio geared towards innovation like Novarama, having a partner of the size and experience of Sony is the perfect blend. By extending our partnership, we will continue making kids believe in invisible creatures and turning gamers into video game characters. Broadly speaking, we want to make the impossible possible,” he said. “These are exciting times to be part of the Sony family. With PSVita on the horizon, the possibilities for creativity are endless”.
