One of Japan's highest-grossed iOS apps is coming to Europe
Japanese publisher GungHo Online Entertainment has announced the creation of a North American division to bring its titles to Western shores. The new division will be bringing three titles to Android and iOS in Europe.
"Our quest at GungHo Online Entertainment America is to seek out the best new titles for the rapidly growing community of online gamers, which has always been a passion of mine," said Jun Iwasaki, President and CEO of GungHo Online Entertainment America. "Our inaugural lineup reflects a strong portfolio of network-oriented games from skilled developers such as Game Arts with plans for more to be announced in the coming months."
The first three titles coming to Europe include:
Puzzle RPG Puzzle & Dragons for iOS, one of highest grossing App Store apps in Japan. The game is scheduled for release in November.
Tower defense and simulation title Freak Tower, for Android and iOS platforms. Build your freaky tower and invite your friends to move in. Freak Tower is also scheduled for release in November.
Princess Punt 2, an action puzzle RPG for iOS and Android. In early 2013, players will be able to take control of a princess as she kicks her knights and weapons at her enemies.
GungHo Online will be announcing more titles in the future. No North America release dates were given for the iOS and Android titles.
