Rising Star Games has appointed Codemasters to handle its UK sales and distribution.
The agreement, announced today, will see the Britsoft publisher handling Rising Star titles to the end of 2006.
These will include DS releases of highly anticipated RPG Contact, Ys Strategy and New Zealand Story.
PSP titles covered under the deal include Pilot Academy from Kuju's Sheffield studio, and Bubble Bobble Evolution.
"Codemasters relishes the opportunity to work with Rising Star Games in the UK," said Jonathan Hales, vice president of sales for Codemasters.
"To work with such titles as Contact and Pilot Academy, which are perfect fits for the handheld market, is a testament to Codemasters' sales reach in the UK."
Rising Star Games is a joint venture between Japanese publisher/developer Marvelous Interactive and Nordic distributor Bergsala AB.
