I'm not really sure what this means- what is AQ Interactive going to do here?

Last game I saw with their name on it was Freedom Fighters 7 years ago.



Leatherhat on July 6th, 2012 3pm. Vita sales:"3 mil for COD 2 mil for AC. Maybe more. "  thehusbo on July 6th, 2012 5pm. Vita sales:"5 mil for COD 2.2 mil for AC."

That means either Artoon, Feelplus, or Cavia is doing it. I think Artoon will do it.

Basically the game is going to be developed by a external company not by a internal Nintendo Studio.

This is not really true. AQ Interactive could be just doing some contract work like backgrounds or developing other assests for the game. They list Resident Evil: Darkside chronicles yet we know Cavia was the developer. For example Game arts helped to develop Smash Bros. Brawl but Monolith did background work.

Is this news to anyone? It's a Mistwalker game, after all.

For whatever reason, (I think lack of resources)! Mistwalker usually has to team up with a developer outside itself to finish a project.

I don't know the specification of this thread and am somewhat confused myself, but I wasn't aware that Nintendo was/wasn't developing it or even rumour to be.

Edit: So the co-developer has yet to be announced?

Cavia is an AQ Interactive studio.

This is what I get for looking up the company on IGN instead of using Google.

Ahh I understand now, the co-developer is an AQ interactive studio, and they are the parent company of Freeplus, Artoon and Cavia!
