The online independent retailer Playasia turns 20 years old this year, and to celebrate this special occasion - it's launching its own publishing label.

Playasia Publishing is officially described as a "new video game software branch" that aims to "further the goal" of providing games for video game fans around the world.

It will also provide "direct assistance" to developers (throughout the development and publishing process) - by helping bring games to new platforms and providing additional language support.

The move into publishing has been made easy with an established customer base and existing connections with partners across Asia, having already been an "exclusive partner for hundreds of unique physical titles".

Playasia called on VTubers @obakepam and @theakamana to share the news. Check out the full press announcement in the video below:
