Capcom gets full MotoGP rights

And buys Tenchu studio.

Capcom has secured the exclusive worldwide rights to publish games in the MotoGP series across all hardware platforms.

The deal comes a year after Capcom obtained the PlayStation rights to the franchise.

Now the publisher plans to release games based on the 2008 MotoGP season for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, PS2 and mobiles. Top manufacturers such as Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki will feature, along with riders including Shinya Nakano, Jorge Lorenzo and the UK's James Toseland.

Meanwhile, Capcom has also announced the acquisition of K2 - the studio behind the Tenchu and Valhalla Knights series.

"K2 has a proven record as a reliable provider of game development services for Capcom," the company said in a statement.

"By making this company a wholly-owned subsidiary, Capcom plans to make its game development activities more efficient and speedy."
