Mind Candy and social gaming company GREE have joined forces to bring the Moshi Monsters to mobile devices worldwide.
The partnership will kick off with the launch of two new Moshi Monsters mobile games on the GREE Platform, set for release at the end of this year.
The partnership will bring Mind Candy’s popular family brand Moshi Monsters to GREE’s 230 million worldwide users, while introducing the GREE Platform to an active community of more than 60 million registered Moshi Monsters users.
The partnership will also expand on Moshi Monster’s cross-continent success by delivering the games in multiple languages, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin and more.
“Our fans love tablets and smartphones so we’re really excited to take our much-loved characters and stories to these new platforms,” says Michael Acton Smith, founder and chief executive officer, Mind Candy. “GREE has achieved phenomenal success, and we’re looking forward to working with them on these two games.”
As part of its move into the mobile gaming industry Mind Candy is building an in-house team to handle mobile partnerships and the internal development of all mobile titles, including several games and apps set for release throughout the year.
