Mobile: partnership tra Sega Networks e Gumi


Sega Networks ha stretto un’alleanza con Gumi Inc per la distribuzione dei suoi titoli in Europa, America e Asia. Con molta probabilità quindi in futuro vedremo convertiti sempre più spesso i titoli Sega Networks, ad incominciare da Chain Chronicle. Niente da fare invece per chi si aspettava qualche movimento per quanto riguarda le localizzazioni dei titoli console.

Di seguito la press release:

SAN FRANCISCO & TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SEGA Networks Co., Ltd. and gumi Inc. (gumi) today announced a partnership to distribute SEGA Networks’ Japanese game titles in North America, Europe, South Asia and other territories. Gamers can expect the first of these titles later this year with the launch of the popular Japanese RPG Chain Chronicle. Both companies are collaborating in order to provide localized support for player preferences, languages and gameplay environments.

SEGA Networks was established in July 2012 to distribute mobile games based on SEGA’s legendary franchises as well as those based on new intellectual property. Recent hits include the puzzle-RPG Puyo Puyo!! Quest, which reached MOREthan 10 million downloads in Japan, and Chain Chronicle, which has remained in the Top Grossing category on the App Store and Google Play. Chain Chronicle allows gamers to become a soldier who builds an ARMY and fights to protect the imaginary land of “Yugdo” from the menacing Black Army. As the game advances, players begin to unravel each member’s story to create a long chain of chronicles where all are connected.

gumi’s subsidiary Alim Co., Ltd. launched the hit title Brave Frontier for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android smartphones and tablets in 55 countries including North America, Europe, Japan and South Asia, demonstrating that Japanese-developed content can achieve success on a global scale.

“The alliance and capital investment in gumi will lead to more of our popular Japanese games making the leap to markets around the globe, starting with one of our biggest hits, Chain Chronicle,” said Haruki Satomi, CEO of SEGA Networks. “The publishing experience and support that gumi can provide for this genre of games has already been proven with the success of Brave Frontier and we’re confident in their ability to execute.”

Earlier this week, gumi issued an additional amount of external shares, of which SEGA Networks acquired a share. With this additional funding, gumi will continue to grow their divisions responsible for developing and publishing mobile titles worldwide.

“SEGA Networks provides some of the most enjoyable and well-known entertainment experiences to people throughout the world. We are privileged and thrilled to build a robust strategic partnership that will advance gumi’s overseas operations and global publishing business to the next level,” said Hironao Kunimitsu, CEO of gumi Inc.
