Game Outlet Europe, known for its unique "Game Outlet Pallet" distribution business, has been successfully distributing video games for a number of years, with a yearly turnover in excess of �20million, and year on year growth, and makes the move into publishing with a wealth of consumer data, financial stability, and access to a solid distribution network.

Lundborg concludes, "Also, being Swedish, we have adopted the IKEA philosophy, which means every product we do will aim to give consumers great quality and value, at tremendous prices."

Nordic Games currently has five projects in development, across 11 SKUs, with further details to be announced shortly.
