Arc System Works announced today with a press release that on June 1st it has purchased all of the IPs previously owned by the defunct Technos Japan.

The rights have been transfered from Millions & Co, that acquired them after Technos’ bankruptcy in 1996, and include Double Dragon and River City Ransom (Kunio-kun).

The press release does not mention what Arc System Works intends to do with the newly acquired IPs, but considering the quality of their games, this is definitely good news.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
