The odd swapping of games between Ignition Entertainment and XSEED continues. First, Ignition obtained the rights to Marvelous's Muramasa: The Demon Blade
and Arc Rise Fantasia
, both initially to be published by XSEED. Now, XSEED has announced that it will publish Samurai Shodown: Edge of Destiny
on Xbox 360 -- a game that we played
at Ignition's E3 booth.
XSEED is publishing the fighter under the name Samurai Shodown Sen
, with a release planned for sometime this spring. Along with Atlus's announcement that it's publishing Metal Slug XX
, this move provides evidence that Ignition's co-publishing deal
with SNK has ended.
