Rising Star Games Unites with All Interactive Entertainment (AIE)



The home of Japanese games has appointed AIE as their Australian publisher.

Gold Coast: 23rd March 2010. All Interactive Entertainment (AIE) together with Rising Star Games (RSG) are pleased to announce that they will be partnering with the immediate releases the company has scheduled for 2010.

Rising Star Games are excited about the partnership and believe their games will be well represented in the Australian market. (“I have been overwhelmed by the energy and passion shown by the team at AIE for our brand and products. AIE have demonstrated an understanding of our unique positioning in the market and an enthusiasm to collaborate with RSG to ensure we deliver great gaming content to the Australian market.” quote from Martin Defries Managing Director & C.O.O.)

Some of the titles being released include the Fragile Dreams, Way of the Samurai 3, Avalon Code, Luminous Arc 2, Half Minute Hero, Samurai Showdown Sen, Animal Kororo and the highly anticipated sequel for the Wii console; No More Heroes 2 – Desperate Struggle.

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle continues the tale of punk anti-hero Travis Touchdown, the Japanese anime Otaku, and pro wrestling-obsessed assassin. Travis finds himself at the bottom of the UAA (United Assassins Association) rankings and must wage war to become the No. 1 assassin once again. The follow-up to the popular No More Heroes will offer fans infectious, fun game play that allows you to wield not just one, but two swords and face multiple bosses simultaneously in bigger-than-ever boss battles.

This exciting edition to the adult collection of Wii games which is currently lacking allows you too use the Wii controllers to slice and dice your opponents with the flick of a wrist.

So far it has received strong review scores from; NGamer: 94%, Edge: 9/10, Official Nintendo Magazine: 88%. “Desperate Struggle is a brilliantly twisted love letter to the videogame medium” GamesSpy.

Rising Star Games are also responsible for such games as…..the ‘Harvest Moon’ series, the acclaimed ‘Muramasa’ Nintendo Wii title alongside the much lauded ‘Little Kings Story’ With a portfolio of more than 50 releases since its inception in 2004, Rising Star Games has consistently delivered great Japanese games to Australia from developers and publishers such as Marvelous Entertainment, Atlus, Spike, Hudson, Irem, Tecmo, etc.,
