Xseed JKS is bringing Sumioni: Demon Arts from Akihabara based developer Acquire overseas. Usually, when a company publishes a game the rights to the intellectual property stay with the Japanese publisher. This is the case even for Grand Knights History, a Marvelous AQL game and you may recall Marvelous AQL is Xseed’s parent company.
Acquire and Xseed may be sharing the rights to Sumioni: Demon Arts. Check out this Famitsu report. The article mention downloadable content plans like a post-launch time attack ranking mode and possibly extra levels for players to download.
All the way at the bottom, the copyright information credits Acquire and Xseed JKS. If that’s the case Sumioni: Demon Arts might be the first intellectual property Xseed partially owns. We’ll check in with Xseed to see if this is accurate and if it is that would make Sumioni: Demon Arts one of Xseed’s important projects for 2012.
