ANKAMA group, creator of internationally renowned MMORPG, DOFUS, is teaming up with Microsoft to develop its 1st console-based video game.
ANKAMA group has announced its partnership with Microsoft for the development of Islands of Wakfu, its 1st offering for the latest generation of game consoles. Islands of Wakfu, which is the most recent addition to Ankama's crossmedia universe, retains DOFUS and Wakfu's graphic touch, but adds the feel of an animated cartoon. This adventure/beat'em all style game can be played by two players in team mode and will reveal never seen before background content from the world of DOFUS and Wakfu.
Ankama Play, ANKAMA group's newly created, independent next gen video game development studio, have recently finalised a deal with the software giant Microsoft.
Islands of Wakfu is planned for release in late 2009 on the Xbox Live Arcade.
