Well Japan has its own mass of shovelware/crap (which to me is more than what we get) and guess what? They may be in for a whole lot more!

Square Enix Co., Ltd. (Square Enix) today announced that Square Enix and Ubisoft Japan entered into an exclusive distribution agreement under which Square Enix is entitled to distribute UBISOFT Group games exclusively in Japan starting April 2009.

In the increasingly consolidated video game industry, Square Enix has been implementing strategic initiatives to expand its product lineup and strengthen its presence as a global game publisher. In 2008, the company began publishing third-party titles in PAL territories, and in December 2008, published its first overseas-produced game in Japan with the launch of UK-based Frontier Developments Ltd’s LostWindsTM for WiiWare™. This exclusive distribution agreement for UBISOFT Group games will be another key step to achieve the aforementioned goal.

“The global video game market is expected to maintain sustainable growth thanks to geographical expansion and diversification of customer base,” said Yoichi Wada, president and representative director of Square Enix. “By partnering with the UBISOFT Group having a number of highly acclaimed titles, we can now work to provide high-quality overseas-produced games to Japan, thus invigorating the Japanese game market while strengthening our presence as a global leader in the video game industry.”

Details on games to be released will be available at a later time.



Well Ubisoft do release the occasional good game.

Well, personally, no matter how much crap they come up with, they're still a great company just for bringing us Rayman, Beyond Good & Evil, Far Cry 2 and all the Prince of Persia 3D games.
Not many companies can boast a repertoire like that to be honest.

What happened to staying on the main subject with Square Enix, they had that new stay on main topic thing like FF, and stuff like that. They probably won't be making a TWEWY sequel(I havn't finished it yet though
