No big puzzle: GungHo continues western push with 17-BIT deal

Puzzle & Dragons developer GungHo has announced it is to continue its push in western markets thanks to a deal to publish two titles from Seattle-based 17-BIT.

The two parties have revealed GungHo will publish future titles from the studio, which is behind iOS, Android and Windows Phone release Skulls of the Shogun and forthcoming sci-fi shooter for Windows, PS Vita and PS4 Galak-Z: The Dimensional.


"17-BIT's dedication to re-energising classic genres for next-gen gaming fits perfectly with GungHo's core values and notably expands the breadth of our game portfolio," said GungHo CEO Jun Iwasaki.

"We pursued this partnership because we have high expectations for the developer and are eagerly awaiting to collaborate on their next major release."

Skulls of the Shogun

The news comes ahead of GungHo's plan to launch Grasshopper Manufacture's Let It Die on PS4, with the firm having acquired the studio back in January 2013.
