Studio 629, under IT giant NHN, announced it has signed a deal with Rovio Entertainment to develop a mobile game based on the popular Angry Birds series. This is apparently the first time Rovio Entertainment has worked directly with a Korean developer. Studio 629 currently has 4 mobile games, and Rovio is leveraging on its “expertise” to expand further into selected Asia markets.
According to Studio 629, the new mobile game based on Angry Birds is in development and is scheduled to launch later this year. The core features of this new game will be vastly different from the Angry Birds games we are seeing now, though it will still suit players of all ages. Every process, including marketing and operations, is handled by Studio 629 (Rovio is just collecting royalties).
