Texas-based Funimation Entertainment has teamed with NGames Interactive in China and Washington’s GameSamba to create free-to-play mobile and online games based on its anime titles and other IPs.
Online/mobile games publisher NGames Interactive will use its studios throughout Asia to develop new licensed titles in partnership with free-to-play mobile games publisher/developer GameSamba, with the help of North American anime brand manager Funimation, which has launched its own anime streaming service and is revamping it in preparation for a February launch in the UK.
GameSamba and NGames are currently working together on the new online game Star Trek: Alien Domain (pictured). And on the horizon for this year, the new partnership between the three companies will see the release a bevy of web and mobile games based on the hit anime series Fairy Tail and Tokyo Ghoul. More titles are also expected to be announced soon.
