Nobilis Sueing SouthPark Games

More financial fisticuffs as developer Nobilis has confirmed it is pursuing legal action against SouthPark for alleged non-payment of funds. The case follows SouthPark's own case against rival publisher Majesco, claiming it did not legally inherit the rights to DS title 'My Baby 3' developed by Nobilis. The studio's MD Arnaud Blacher commented:
"We vigorously contest the statement made by SouthPeak. The rights of My Baby 3 have been legally transferred to Majesco and in the strict respect of the previous contracts signed with SouthPeak."

"We confirm that all the contracts signed with SouthPeak in the U.S. or in the U.K. have been terminated after uncured breaches from Southpeak notably for non payment. We also confirm that we brought the litigation with SouthPeak to court to defend our rights. We remain very confident on the outcome of these legal actions."
The industry just isn't all fun and games it would seem.
