Agetec’s Next Game Stars Fireball Shooting Baby

By Spencer . July 5, 2010 . 1:58am

Agetec used to publish games like Magic Pengel (pictured), but aside from Way of the Samurai 3 the publisher hasn’t been very active. Seems like they’re jumping into DSiWare with Paul’s Shooting Adventure.

Way of the Samurai 3 Marketed With An iPhone Game

By Spencer . September 21, 2009 . 11:50am

A key feature of the Way of the Samurai games is choice. Do you stab everyone in your way or avoid altercations with diplomacy? Publishers Agetec and UFO Interactive had a decision to make too – how to market the game in North America.

By Spencer . August 25, 2009 . 6:00pm

Way of the Samurai 3 has two publishing paths. We contacted UFO and Agetec to tell us about the agreement and what the North American version of Way of the Samurai 3 will be like.

An ESRB leak (thanks Justin!) just reaffirms Bub is coming to our shores sometime in the future.   Also found on the ESRB is a rating for Silver Star Chess, a WiiWare chess game published by Electronic Arts in Japan. Agetec, who […]

Origins of Agetec’s Women’s Volleyball

By Spencer . June 13, 2008 . 4:33pm

The doors are wide open for PlayStation 2 publishers. We’re seeing all kinds of games thought to stay in Japan only like Shining Dragon. Women’s Volleyball, which is coming out from Agetec in August, is one of them. This might be the first time most of you have seen the game, but it is a […]

Let’s look at LOL with Agetec

By Spencer . April 10, 2008 . 1:27pm

Yesterday, we saw Agetec listed LOL for sale “online only.” LOL will be “hard to find.” When I asked Hiro Fukuoka, the Producer of LOL at Agetec, he candidly confirmed there is a limited supply of LOL for North America. I’m still surprised we’re getting any localized copies.   What is LOL? Let’s skip to […]

LOL not laughing its way to retail?

By Spencer . April 9, 2008 . 3:28pm

I was wondering how Agetec planned on distributing LOL (aka Archime DS). Since the game requires other people to play, LOL didn’t strike me as a title retailers were lining up to place orders for. My guess was it would be a Gamestop exclusive. Chris over from Cosmos Gaming  (thanks for the tip!!) discovered LOL’s […]

Laugh out loud with Archime DS

By Spencer . March 15, 2008 . 12:30am

Agetec sent an e-mail officially announcing LOL, a localized version of a Skip published game Archime DS. Skip created Chibi-Robo and the cheerful, but woefully lost in translation (read: never been localized) Giftpia. LOL sticks to Skip’s light hearted tone and it challenges players to write humorous responses to each other via local wireless play. […]

Agetec publishing a European kids RPG?

By Spencer . March 11, 2008 . 5:47pm

Once the home for Armored Core, Agetec has been branching out in new directions. Recently, they built a relationship with Ivolgamus, a Lithuanian developer behind Fading Shadows. On top of publishing the orb rolling game on the PSP, the ESRB suggests Agetec is releasing Falling Stars too.   Falling Stars puts players in control of […]

Fading Shadows rolls onto PSPs in May

By Spencer . March 7, 2008 . 2:18pm

While were on the subject of quirky puzzle games it’s a good time to mention Fading Shadows. Chris over at Cosmos Gaming (thanks for doing a better job watching Agetec than me!) discovered they picked up the rights to publish Fading Shadows in North America. I mentioned this game before when it was only confirmed […]

Agetec picks up where Sega Europe left off

By Spencer . March 3, 2008 . 12:37pm

Sometime last year Sega Europe developed and published Touch Darts, a Nintendo DS title where players “throw” darts with the touch screen. Since the game was already in a familiar language (read: English) it seemed like a no brainer that Sega USA would publish it in North America in the future. Heavens no! Instead of […]

Going to the mat with Fire Pro Wrestling Returns

By Dan . December 15, 2007 . 5:17pm

I'm not what you would call a wrestling fan. In fact I initially resisted wanting to take a look at Fire Pro Wrestling Returns from Agetec, since I didn't want my "meh" attitude towards wrestling to taint an otherwise good game. To be completely honest, I've never heard of the Fire Pro series but after […]
