SCEE acquires Invizimals developer

Novarama Technology, the Barcelona-based developer behind PSP’s Invizimals and the upcoming PlayStation Vita fighter Reality Fighters, has a new family. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has acquired the studio, which specializes in augmented reality technology.

“This strategic alliance with one of Europe’s brightest developers, a developer with unrivaled experience of augmented reality games shows our determination to work with creative and innovative developers,” said SCE Worldwide Studios Europe Senior VP Michael Denny.

Novarama CEO Dani Sanchez-Crespo is also enthusiastic about the merger, adding: “These are exciting times to be part of the Sony family. With PSVita on the horizon, the possibilities for creativity are endless.”

PlayStation Vita will launch this holiday in North America and in 2012 in Europe.
