Lionship Studio – NCsoft opens new mobile games studio in Japan

Last week, NCsoft formed a new subsidiary in Japan, Lionship Studio, to expand its in-house mobile games portfolio. Leading Lionship Studio’s mobile games development efforts is led by Yojiro Ogawa, a veteran from SEGA who has worked on Sonic Adventure (1999), Phantasy Star Online (2000), along with various other Sonic games. With no experience creating new IPs and developing mobile games in the super-competitive market, it seems like Ogawa has his work cut out for him.
