Tantalus opens new studio in Brisbane

Team will initially work on new DS project

Australian developer Tantalus has opened a new studio in Kelvin Grove, Brisbane.

The team behind Cars: Mater National and Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon on DS will work on another title for Nintendo's handheld at the new studio, with plans to expand to a second team by the end of next year.

"With the help of the Queensland Government we’ve found a terrific location in Kelvin Grove, and feel that the talent pool up there will enable us very quickly to assemble a world class group of developers. In fact, we’ve already made several key hires," revealed COO David Giles.

The studio officially opens in December. Tantalus already has a studio in Melbourne, which is expected to grow to 80 staff by 2009.
