Brash signs Genji dev for film game

For release in 2010.

Brash Entertainment has signed Japanese developer Game Republic to develop a game based on a "popular Hollywood film" for release in 2010, GamesIndustry.biz reports.

Game Republic was founded by Yoshiki Okamoto, developer of Resident Evil and Street Fighter II, and most recently delivered Genji: Days of the Blade and Folklore for Sony's PlayStation 3.

"One of my goals with games is to do something revolutionary with something that has been never been seen before," commented Okamoto. "The opportunity to re-imagine a fictional world provided by a compelling Hollywood IP using the interactive medium of games is very exciting to me."

"We are working directly with the creative talent from the film, and feel that the close collaboration will result in an amazing game play experience that immerses the player in an incredible fantasy world."

Brash was formed last year and has secured USD 400 million to fund games based on movie, television and music properties.

"As a gamer, I am extremely excited to work with Okamoto-san, who has produced some of my favourite games," said Brash co-founder and CEO Mitch Davis.

"The Brash business gives us the luxury to match the best Hollywood IP with the skills of the most talented independent game developers; our partnership with a strong studio such as Game Republic is an excellent example of that."
