Former Electronic Arts Canada, industry veterans announced today the formation of Jet Black Games, a video game development company that will focus on developing original and licensed intellectual properties for the Nintendo DS and Wii.

"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." states Roger Freddi, Co-founder and CEO of Jet Black.

Jet Black has strategically aligned itself with Flashman Studios Inc., a business management firm specializing in interactive entertainment endeavours. This alliance presents immediate opportunities for Jet Black to leverage Flashman's roster of well-known intellectual properties, and situates the studio at the forefront of Nintendo's revolution in gaming.

"Both the Nintendo DS and Wii's WiFi capabilities provide an advanced medium for Jet Black to bring already popular franchises to an even broader worldwide audience."

Freddi adds, "These recognised licensed properties serve to ensure that Jet Black is a name to affiliate with Nintendo games, and nicely complement the original IP on which we're working."

"We are confident in the capabilities of Jet Black's exceptional team, and know our strong global alliances and years of game experience will help grow their business", Brad Young, CEO of
Flashman said. "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."
