Capcom has ended its distribution partnership with THQ in Australia, and opted for a similar relationship with Activision to ship its games to retail stores.

The first title to be distributed as part of the new agreement will be the anticipated Xbox 360 game Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, due to hit shelves on January 12th next year.

"This region is extremely important to Capcom and with Activision we have found a partner with unparalleled knowledge and expertise in the Australian and New Zealand markets," said Hiroshi Tobisawa, president of Capcom US.

As part of the deal, Activision also intends to distribute Capcom titles previously unavailable at Australian retail, including Okami and God Hand, both due in February 2007.
