The U.S. division of major Japanese game publisher Sega has announced a new partnership with San Francisco-based Planet Moon Studios (Armed & Dangerous, Infected) to create a new game for the PSP based on an undisclosed existing Sega franchise. The new partnership continues Sega's recent expansion of its strategy to revisit its popular classic franchises, by developing new content and gameplay on current and next-gen platforms, as it pushes back toward greater console game biz prominence. Previously, Sega announced a partnership with Totally Games on an upcoming Sega franchise that has not been officially announced, but it believed to be Alien Syndrome. The company is also preparing the 2007 release of Golden Axe, developed by the Sega-owned development studio Secret Level. “Sega’s vast library of properties allows for unlimited possibilities in revitalizing fan-favorites on the PSP,” said Bob Stevenson, Co-Founder and CEO of Planet Moon Studios. “Our passion for Sega’s classic brands combined with our extensive background in crafting original games will help us create a compelling new chapter in this fan-favorite franchise.” “With an incredible archive of established franchises, Sega is always seeking strategic partnerships with top development talent to revitalize our vintage titles,” said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, Sega of America, Inc. “Planet Moon’s reputation of creating critically acclaimed games makes them the perfect choice to inject originality and ingenuity to our classic IPs.”
