Toy company Tomy Corporation announced a partnership with Collision Studios to develop a video game based on a new IP for Nintendo platforms, due late summer 2009. The U.S. based subsidiary of Takara Tomy has previously published a number of titles for Wii and DS, and is primarily known in the video game industry for its localization of games centered on the Naruto anime and manga franchise. The company recently expanded game publishing operations at its headquarters in Santa Ana, California, and revealed that it will create games based on its popular toy brands and licensed characters, as well as original intellectual properties tailored for the Western market. Tomy hopes to further emphasize its "commitment to establishing its footprint in the gaming industry" with this latest joint venture. Founded in 2005, Collision Studios has released both original and license-based games for multiple platforms, such as 300: March to Glory for PSP. It is also currently working on an "original arcade action side-scroller" for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. "We are dedicated to establishing a reputation for quality games and innovative, new IP, which is made possible through partnerships with respected developers like Collision Studios," says Tomy Corporation's director of consumer software Laura Yoshioka. "Collision's impressive roster of original and licensed video games instills confidence in their ability to create a unique and exciting new title."
