ANKAMA signs deal with Microsoft
for its 1st next gen console game
ANKAMA group, creator of
internationally renowned MMORPG, DOFUS, is teaming up with Microsoft to develop
its 1st console-based video game.
ANKAMA group has announced its
partnership with Microsoft for the development of Islands of Wakfu, its 1st
offering for the latest generation of game consoles. Islands of Wakfu, which is
the most recent addition to Ankama’s crossmedia universe, retains DOFUS and
Wakfu’s graphic touch, but adds the feel of an animated cartoon. This adventure/beat’em
all style game can be played by two players in team mode and will reveal never
seen before background content from the world of DOFUS and Wakfu.
Ankama Play, ANKAMA group’s newly
created, independent next gen video game development studio, have recently
finalised a deal with the software giant Microsoft.
Islands of Wakfu is planned for
release in late 2009 on the Xbox Live Arcade.
