THQ has signed a distribution agreement with Majesco that will see it release 14 of the US publisher's titles in Europe and other PAL regions over a two-year period. No financial details were disclosed.
Among the titles will be Jaws Unleashed, critically acclaimed platform game Psychonauts, Aeon Flux, and Nintendo DS titles Nanostray, Black & White Creatures and Age of Empires 2.
"This is a great opportunity for THQ to expand its portfolio of products internationally," said Ian Curran, THQ's senior vice president in charge of European publishing.
Majesco president Jesse Sutton described the deal as a "significant initiative" in expanding the company's global presence. "THQ is recognized worldwide as a premier publisher and we are excited to partner with them to effectively extend our brands throughout the global community," he said in a statement.
Majesco has previously seen some of its titles - including vampire action game BloodRayne - released in Europe through a distribution deal with Vivendi-Universal Games, but its impact here has been very slight.
However, the publisher has endured problems recently, lowering sales expectations and coming under fire from shareholders following poor sales of Psychonauts and Advent Rising in the US.
