Kalypso and ATLUS are pleased to announce a new exclusive distribution deal for Kalypso's upcoming Port Royale 3: Pirates & Merchants, Tropico 4 Gold, Omerta: City of Gangsters and Dark on consoles and PC for the North American retail market.

Port Royale 3 is a trading empire-building game set during the heyday of piracy in a realistically rendered version of the 17th century Caribbean; it will ship on October 9, 2012 for the X360, PC and PS3

Tropico 4: Gold Edition combines two empire-building and management simulations where the player dons the jackboots of El Presidente, everyone’s favorite dictator trying to stay in power and maximize his offshore bank account. Tropico 4 Gold Edition will ship on November 13, 2012 on X360 and PC.

Omerta: City of Gangsters is the latest offering from the team behind Tropico 4, offering players a shot at building and growing a criminal empire during 1920’s Prohibition-era Atlantic City. Omerta will ship in early 2013 for Xbox 360 and PC.

Dark, set for a March 2013 release on X360 and PC, puts players in the role of a newly turned vampire, as he uses stunning vampire moves to battle enemies and make their way through an elaborately crafted storyline involving modern corporations and elder vampires.

“ATLUS is a very well established publisher and distributor of high quality video games and has a proven track record of sales and an excellent reach in the North American retail market,” said Mario Kroll, Vice President of Kalypso Media USA. “This partnership will provide ATLUS with additional high quality video game content while offering Kalypso Media broader distribution and more effective sales, allowing us to concentrate on what we do best: making and promoting great games.”

"For several years we have been providing limited distribution services to Kalypso Media,” said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ATLUS.  “We jumped at the opportunity to broaden our relationship by distributing these upcoming titles to all North American retailers and distributors.  Kalypso Media’s quality strategy games and action RPG’s fit in well with our own titles and those that we distribute from NIS America, We’re proud of our growing relationship with the marketing and product development teams at Kalypso Media.”
