SEGA, THQ Ink Deal for
Japanese Publishing Rights
SEGA to Publish Juiced,
Destroy All Humans!
THQ and SEGA have announced plans that will allow SEGA to have priority
publishing rights for THQ titles in Japan. THQ has not, to date, had one
publisher for its titles in Japan. The deal, announced Friday, will kick off
with the release of Juiced and Destroy All Humans! on the PS2, with both
titles set to release in early 2006.
This is not the first time that SEGA and THQ have worked in partnership,
though previously the agreement centered around titles released in the United
States for the Game Boy Advance.. In late 2003 the two companies announced an
extension of their previous publishing agreeement (for the Sonic Battle game)
and as a result two new Sonic the Hedgehog titles were released for the Game
Boy Advance in 2004.
