Istpika raised 200M yen ($2.5M) from DeNA-sponsored Incubate Fund

DeNA provides most of capital of Incubate Fund, which has also invested in Pokelabo recently. Including Istpika and Pokelabo, the fund has invested in around five social game studios.

Istpika provides Bistrante, social game co-developed with DeNA for Mobage-town, and Tomodachi Ichiba Zakkania for GREE. The company entered the social game market quite early providing games for Facebook before mixi was opened.

With this investment, it plans to develop social games for iPhone in addition to Mobage-town.
