Former EA Canada industry veterans announced the formation of Jet Black Games today, which will focus on developing original and licensed intellectual properties for the Nintendo DS and Wii.
Roger Freddi, Co-founder and CEO of Jet Black, said, “With the launch of our new studio, we’ve brought together all the key elements to develop top games; proven experience and talent, the desire to push the creative envelope, commitment to making games we ourselves want to play, and all the resources and support systems needed to perform.”
Jet Black has aligned itself with Flashman Studios, Inc., a business management firm that specializes in interactive entertainment. This partnership gives Jet Black access to Flashman’s current roster of intellectual properties and situates the studio at the forefront of Nintendo’s revolution in gaming.
Brad Young, CEO of Flashman, said, “We are confident in the capabilities of Jet Black’s exceptional team. … Our proven success in cultivating the right match of intellectual property, publisher, and developer will allow Jet Black to do what they do best – build great games, create inspirational ideas, and develop great technology.”
