Marvelous Interactive’s existing anime studios will be used to produce movies based on all the newly merged company’s properties, as well as publishing soundtracks and other merchandising spin-offs. The company’s existing connections with Western publishers (including the Rising Star Games co-published label) will also be employed to bring Nihon Falcom titles to North America and Europe.
