GREE area at Tokyo Game Show
Japanese mobile gaming company GREE (TYO:3632) has today announced multiple partnerships with leading social/mobile game developers in Korea and Greater China. The partnerships will result in 12 new iOS and Android titles coming to the new GREE platform when it launches later this year, we’re told between April and June.
Among the most prominent of these titles on the way is Punchbox’s Fishing Joy which recently celebrated its 30 millionth download just last month . The complete list of companies and games coming to the new GREE platform are listed below:
|Beijing Astepgame Co. Ltd||Three Kingdoms TD Fate of Wei||Beijing China|
|Beijing Pearlinpalm Information Technology Co., Ltd.||Pearl Heroes – The Three Kingdoms||Beijing China|
|Boyaa Interactive International Limited||Boyaa Texas Poker||Hong Kong|
|Company 100, Inc.||Buddy Rush||Gyeonggii, South Korea|
|Company 100, Inc.||Cross Counter||Gyeonggii, South Korea|
|Haypi Co., Ltd.||Haypi Kingdom||Shanghai, China|
|Hoolai Game Limited||Rise Of Olympia||Beijing, China|
|iFree Studio Limited||Emross War||Hong Kong|
|Pictosoft Co., Ltd.||Stylish Sprint||Seoul, South Korea|
|Chukong Technology Co., Ltd. (PunchBox)||Fishing Joy X||Beijing, China|
|Shanghai MUHE Network Technology Co., Ltd.||Tap Three Kingdoms||Shanghai, China|
|Something Big Technology Co., Ltd.||Sanguo Mobile||Shanghai, China|
Interestingly GREE says that these games will be first available in English, with Japanese, Chinese, and Korean languages “under consideration.” And while it’s great to see GREE increase its game offerings, we’ll have to wait and see how well these games created in Asia will be received in places like the US and Europe. Note that four of the games listed above are of the “three kingdoms” variety.
GREE also recently announced that it will be in attendance at E3 in Los Angeles this June. We expect that its global platform will be ready by then, and will be front and center at the show. After the company’s acquisition of Open Feint, there are now almost 190 million users under the GREE Group umbrella.
Note that GREE specifies Fishing Joy X in its announcement, so I assume this could be a new version. ↩
