Ubisoft bringing DRAKENGARD 2 to Europe

Ubisoft, today 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 DRAKENGARD 2 for the PlayStation®2.

Ubisoft is expanding its prior collaboration with Square Enix. Last year Ubisoft published Star Ocean Till the End of Time for PlayStation 2 and distributed the Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) FINAL FANTASY XI for Windows throughout Europe.

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, DRAKENGARD® 2 became an immediate success, topping Japanese sales charts and selling more than 100,000 copies in its first week of release.

“We are very excited to be working with Square Enix to publish this highly anticipated RPG in North America and Europe. 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.” said Jay Cohen, vice president of publishing at Ubisoft

DRAKENGARD 2 will be available in Europe, North America and Australia in March 2006. For more information and updates on the game, visit
