Legacy signs game publishing deal with Nintendo

Casual games publisher Legacy Interactive has signed a deal with Nintendo to create titles for its Wii and handheld DS consoles in the US, reports video game news site GameDaily. The first titles to be released under the deal will be Legacy’s ‘Zoo Vet: Endangered Animals’ for the DS, and ‘Pet Pals: Animal Doctor’ for the Wii. These will be available in October.

“Becoming a Nintendo publisher allows us take advantage of the innovative interfaces of the DS and Wii to expand these franchises and bring them to new customers and new platforms,” says Legacy Interactive President and CEO, Ariella Lehrer.

Los Angeles-based Legacy was set up in 1998 and owns online games portal LegacyGames.com, which has some 500 casual games titles. Its games are available in 15 languages and are distributed in partnership with publishers Ubisoft, Mindscape, 505 Games and JoWood.
