Sega completes European exit

Final gap in publishing spread to be filled by Infogrames

Source - MCV

Sega has announced that Infogrames will be the ones to distribute its Game Boy Advance, GameCube and Xbox titles, finally satisfying rumours to that effect. Last week, the company announced that its PS2 titles would be released through Sony and that French publisher Bigben Interactive would handle its Dreamcast operation. On Game Boy Advance, Infogrames will publish ChuChu Rocket, Sonic the Hedgehog Advance, Puyo Puyo and Advance Columns, while on GameCube the company will publish Phantasy Star Online, Virtua Striker 3 Ver.2002 and Super Monkey Ball. Elsewhere, on the Xbox, Infogrames will publish Gunvalkyrie, Jet Set Radio Future, House of the Dead 3, Sega GT 2002, Panzer Dragoon and Crazy Taxi 2 on Sega's behalf. Sega's European president Yoshio Sakai said that the decision to use Infogrames was based on the company's strong European distribution network, its experience and its vision, blabbering something about creating new worlds to explore and how integral this was to the companies' mutual success etc. It was stirring, anyway. This pretty much completes Sega's exit from Europe. Related Feature - Sony to publish Sega
