As a developer, Imageepoch have been growing these past couple of years. Now, it looks like they might be ready to publish their own games. But first, here’s a quick update on what’s been going on with them over the last year or two:

 

2007:

  • First game, Luminous Arc, published by Marvelous Entertainment.

 

2008:

  • Sands of Destruction published by SEGA.
  • Imageepoch tell us they’re experimenting with a Mario Galaxy type game and a Resident Evil type game.
  • CEO, Ryoei Mikage, also tells us Imageepoch have had their eye on the U.S. market all along.

 

2009:

  • 7th Dragon published by SEGA.
  • Arc Rise Fantasia published by Marvelous.
  • The presidents of Falcom, Nippon Ichi and Imageepoch have a meeting in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
  • Soon after, NIS appears on the list of Imageepoch clients.

 

2010:

  • Last Ranker and Fate/Extra published by Capcom and Marvelous for PSP.
  • “Someone” teases a Black Rock Shooter RPG.
  • Criminal Girls announced for PSP; being published by Nippon Ichi.

 

Today, Imageepoch announced in a blog post that they will be hosting a conference sometime in November where they will announce multiple new games. CEO, Ryoei Mikage, also makes mention of a trip to Los Angeles to study the online business.

 

No further details were announced, but Mikage says to expect more next month. The fact that Imageepoch are hosting their own conference likely means they’re ready to publish their own games now.
