Grasshopper Manufacture has joined up with Japanese social gaming company DeNA to create social mobile games. The newly announced joint venture will make games for Japan's Mobage platform. The new team has been named the Grasshopper Social Network Service.
"Our new venture with DeNA will allow us to explore creative ways to bring Grasshopper Manufacture’s universe to a new world of players," Goichi Suda, CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture said. "Mobage’s world-class entertainment network and the power of social mobile games will unlock new types of experiences for our fans."
If the DeNA name sounds familiar, it might be that you heard that they're working with Square Enix on the first Final Fantasy social game.
