After the release of Magna Carta Portable we haven’t heard much from Korea based Softmax. They did some PC titles, but vanished from the console gaming space as quickly as they appeared. Out of the blue Softmax announced they will publish Monster Rancher DS and a Hamtaro game from Marvelous in Korea.
That’s not the interesting news.
Softmax is also developing for the DS for their local market (Korea) and for the international mark. One title in the works is an edutainment game (read: Brain Training) and the other is an original game, possibly an “original orthodox RPG.” Speaking of RPGs whatever happened to Magna Carta 2? Softmax announced it years ago and they casually mentioned it’s still in development for the Xbox 360 in a press release.
