Kakao Games today announced it has signed a global publishing contract for World Flipper, a mobile game developed by Japanese studio Cygames. Through this agreement, Kakao Games has the publishing rights for World Flipper in North America, Europe, Southeast Asia, and South Korea. Kakao Games has now started preparations for the game, taking the learnings from its past publishing experiences in North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia, to make World Flipper available globally in 2021. Multiple languages are expected.
World Flipper is an action mobile game with pinball-like gameplay and 2D style pixel graphics that give it that retro feel with a modern design. It mixes its action-gameplay with collectibles, evolution, and enhancements. Each character in the game belongs to one of six elements, each element triggering special skills. Aside from the main storyline, there are side-story events and boss battles where up to 3 users can play together simultaneously.
Alongside this announcement, Kakao Games has also released a celebratory video introducing Cygames Executive Director Kimura Yuito, and Kakao Games CEO Cho KyeHyun. It was made to inform players awaiting the global release of World Flipper and shows the two companies’ aspirations for the game service plans. Further information about World Flipper’s global launch will be available at a later date. Stay tuned for updates!
