Japan’s mobile gaming giant DeNA is planning to expand its presence in Europe with a new partnership with NTT DoCoMo’s Germany-based subsidiary net mobile.
According to a latest report by MarketWatch, the partnership will see DeNA’s western subsidiary ngmoco work with net mobile to expand the presence of Mobage gaming network across Europe through partnerships and content acquisitions.
“net mobile is a critical partner for us in key markets in Europe as well as Asia. We are squarely focused on bringing the best social mobile games to players worldwide, and our alliance with net mobile is an important step in that direction,” said Neil Young, CEO of ngmoco and director of DeNA.
DeNA’s Mobage social gaming platform currently serves over 30 million users in Japan with more than 1,500 game titles for smartphones, feature phones as well as PCs. NTT DOCOMO and DeNA had previously signed a global alliance to promote Mobage in Japan and other countries worldwide. The extended partnership with net mobile AG will provide the further support needed to boost Mobage’s network in key markets such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, UK and Australia.
