Today Ubisoft announced that it has signed an exclusive publishing deal with Square Enix to bring Drakengard 2 to North America and Europe. Under the agreement, Ubisoft will distribute the game for the PlayStation 2.
This isn't the first time that Ubisoft has gotten together with Square Enix. Last year Ubisoft published Star Ocean Till the End of Time for PlayStation 2 and distributed Final Fantasy XI for Windows throughout Europe.
"We are very excited to be working with Square Enix to publish this highly anticipated RPG in North America and Europe," said Jay Cohen, vice president of publishing at Ubisoft. Drakengard 2 is a hit in the Japanese market, and we are sure that North American and European gamers will also be thrilled by this fantastic adventure title."
Drakengard 2 is a role-playing action game featuring knights and dragons that builds on the scenario of the original title. Released in Japan last June, the game sold more than 100,000 copies in its first week of release.
