Square Enix To Distribute Dead Island In The U.S.


Remember Dead Island? Take a moment to refresh your memory with this trailer, in case you forgot — or haven’t heard of — Deep Silver’s zombie survival-action game, which sees a small group of people stuck on an island with a zombie outbreak.



Square Enix announced today that they’ll be handling distribution for Dead Island in the U.S., and it sounds like they’ll be responsible for marketing it, too. Interestingly, Deep Silver are owned by Koch Media, who distribute Square Enix and Eidos games in certain European territories like Germany.


Dead Island is being prepared for an Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 release this year.
