Valiant Entertainment has officially announced a new partnership with Blowfish Studios to develop new video games.
In a press release sent out earlier today, Valiant Entertainment, the award-winning comic book publisher will team up with Blowfish Studios, an indie game publisher to develop new video games based on much of Valiant Entertainment’s expansive catalogue of intellectual properties.
Valiant Entertainment and Blowfish Studios are said to be working on video games based on the comic book publisher’s popular characters from its superhero universe. This signifies that these are the first multi-platform video games for the comic book publisher since Acclaim acquired the company back in the 1990s.
Here is what Dan Mintz, Founder and CEO of DMG Entertainment had to say about the new partnership:
“We’re thrilled to bring Valiant’s characters back into the video game industry and give fans the opportunity to play as their favorite superheroes. Translating these characters and stories to video games could not come at a more exciting time as we introduce the world to the Valiant Universe on the big screen with the Bloodshot release. These games are poised to become further proof of these characters’ immense potential as anchors in pop culture.”
Ben Lee, Managing Director at Blowfish Studios also commented on the new partnership:
“Valiant is a mainstay of superhero fiction, and with their amazing history in comics and games I am excited to bring their next game to life. We look forward to sharing our vision of the Valiant Universe to gaming fans worldwide.”
