[Penn Olson] GREE Gets Games from Gameloft, Ubisoft for Global Gaming Platform

Japanese social gaming giant GREE (TYO:3632) is announcing today that is is partnering with two big game publishers on titles for its upcoming global platform. The first is Ubisoft (EPA:UBI), who the company will work with to exclusively bring a new Assassin’s Creed title to the upcoming global GREE mobile platform. This is certainly a big-name addition for the company as Assassin’s Creed is one of the best-selling game franchises in the world right now.
The other big partnership that GREE is announcing today is with Gameloft (EPA:GFT). The two companies will work together on a new social title for smartphones called Gang Domination, which will arrive in June. This will be a social card game twist on Gameloft’s Gangstar franchise, the latest installment of which – Gangstar Rio – has done well, helping the publisher to strong financial results late last year.

  • It is interesting to see if the social card game will be popular in other countries than Japan, where many of top-ranked games are social card games.
