Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group said it has acquired Snowblind Studios, an independent game development studio specializing in action and fantasy-based games.

The deal, whose terms were not disclosed, strengthens Burbank-based Warner Bros.' presence as a games publisher. Snowblind, based in the Seattle suburb of Bothell, Wash., will become part of the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment division.

The studio, founded in 1997, is known for the action role-playing games "Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance," "Champions of Norrath" and "Justice League Heroes."

"The arrangement broadens our portfolio with quality games and provides Snowblind with access to our global distribution and publishing capabilities," Warner Bros. Home Entertainment President Kevin Tsujihara said in a statement.
