Playasia announces Playasia Publishing

Online retailer Playasia is launching a game publishing arm.

Independent retailer Playasia has been in the business for 20 years. They’re celebrating the anniversary with the formal launch of Playasia Publishing, a new video game software branch of Playasia.

“We want to contribute to making games playable by more people – whether that is an older title left inaccessible by time, a game in need of expanded language options, or something innovative that could go the extra mile with our support,” says Playasia’s Hardy Pace.

Here’s more on what you can expect from the new publishing label:

With a long-established and growing customer base with an affinity for Japanese and Asian media, Playasia’s immediate focus will be on improving the global availability of such titles – while continuously looking to all regions for innovation.

Playasia Publishing will look to provide direct assistance to developers through the software development and publishing processes – including assisting in the process of bringing existing titles to new platforms and improving accessibility through language options.

Continuing the philosophy of accessibility in all forms, physical games will play an important role in the catalogue offered by Playasia Publishing. With a new standard of collector’s edition already in development for upcoming titles it will be a high priority to have our software released in the familiar format we all love.

We don’t currently have information on any specific games. However, we’ll let you know when we learn more about the games that are coming from Playasia!
