Ubisoft has acquired Vancouver-based games studio Action Pants.

The studio was set up in 2006 and has more than 110 employees. Its first project for Ubisoft will be a sports game for the Wii.

"This new intellectual property will expand on Ubisoft's recent success in the sports genre with the Shaun White Snowboarding franchise," according to the press release.

Some executives from Ubisoft and Action Pants said they were very excited about the whole thing, using words like "values" and "synergy" in quotes which are too tedious to even cut and paste here.

You can read all about it on the Action Pants website, if you're that bothered.
