The deal also includes localization into five languages for titles such as Ecco the Dolphin
, Ferrari F-355
, Virtua Fighter 4
, two Space Channel 5
games, and an as-yet-unannounced game code-named "K-Project."
The deal is expected to launch SCEE into the number-two publisher's spot, according to last year's ChartTrack data, with an estimated 9% of the market, behind Electronic Arts' 13.5%. The arrangement may also facilitate Sega's complete withdrawal from the European market; they handed off remaining Dreamcast distribution in much of Europe to Bigben Interactive in April.
