Friday, October 28th, 2011

SEGA have announced a partnership with Arkedo Studio, the developers behind Nervous Brickdown and Big Bang Mini for Nintendo DS as well as the Arkedo Series on XBLA and PSN.

The new project is currently known as Project Hell Yeah! There is currently no word on what the ‘project’ will be (we’re assuming it’ll be a PSN/XBLA game) but more will be revealed on Arkedo’s blog which you can access by clicking here.

Arkedo appear to be pretty avid SEGA fans. Camille Guermonprez the studio chief has said, “See, SEGA? We spent the last five years telling you repeatedly that someday, somehow, you would publish one of our games. This day has come. Hell Yeah! Now let’s go back to work and finish the damn thing.”

More on Project Hell Yeah! as we get it.
