Duelyst Joins Bandai Namco

Counterplay Games has announced that its widely praised tactical CCG is going to be taken under the wing of games publisher Bandai Namco. Under the new partnership, Bandai will take on responsibility for publishing, marketing and supporting the game whilst the core Counterpoint team will continue to work on development.

Counterpoint is keen to reassure players about what this means, saying:

If you’re afraid of radical changes in our current design and philosophy, fear not! Although Counterplay Games and Bandai Namco are working together on Duelyst, the talent at CPG will still be steering game design: no drastic changes here!

One practical effect of the change is that players will need to migrate from a Duelyst account to a Bandai BNEA account.
