SEE Games and Chinese developer XPEC Entertainment announced a strategic relationship to co-develop and distribute original downloadable games tied to major Hollywood IPs.

The collaboration between SEE Games and XPEC is the result of global investment promotion activities held by the Council For Economic Planning and Development (CEPD). The signing ceremony was an important milestone for Taiwan's digital content development, including the attendance of Council Minister Christina Liu.

"CEPD is committed to helping industries of all kinds in Taiwan connect to the global market. We are happy to play the role of an agent in this collaboration," said Christina Liu. "With efforts from the government and the private sector, we believe we're going to see more international collaborations in the future."

"Working with the talented development staff from XPEC Entertainment will allow us to bring some of the most iconic Hollywood franchises to life," said Martin Biallas, CEO of SEE. "Now players will be able to experience these timeless storylines through deep and immersive games."

"SEE Games' leadership in securing major IP licenses is what sets them apart from the competition," said Aaron Hsu, chairman of XPEC Entertainment. "With both companies' expertise, we are confident that players and fans of these franchises alike will not be disappointed."

SEE Games continues to grow as a mass-market games publisher, bringing the best creators, innovators and concepts together - securing the company's position as a one-stop shop for immersive interactive entertainment. SEE Games' entertainment knowledge matched with XPEC's game design expertise will ensure the game pays homage to the IP. Specializing in the action genre, XPEC has successfully launched 12 titles, including Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, Shrek Forever After and Kung Fu Panda.

"SEE is consistently at the forefront of entertainment and is bringing some of the most well-known IPs to the gaming space," said Corey Redmond, President of SEE Games. "Our partnership with XPEC will ensure that we effectively execute AAA interactive experiences."
