NIS America announced on Tuesday that they have secured the rights to publish games by Imageepoch in the United States and Europe. Haru Akenaga, President of NIS America was quoted,
“I am attracted by their philosophy of creating games. Imageepoch is already a distinguished videogame developer in Japan. Not only that, but it is my firm belief that their future titles will fascinate JRPG fans in the US and Europe in the near future.”
Interestingly this collaboration announcement with NIS America came almost exactly a week after Imageepoch's press conference which apart from announcing several new titles, also revealed more information on their upcoming PSP blockbuster title, Black Rock Shooter.
Though none of this definitively proves anything, we would say an English release is likely based on NIS America's history. Stay tuned as we keep you updated with the latests news.
Imageepoch has previously worked on the Luminous Arc series and the PSP title Fate/Extra based off the Fate/stay night franchise.
