As a mob-themed card game offering a brand new experience for the GREE Platform, the title will allow players to cooperate and battle each other as they try to form the most powerful gang. Gameloft has already proven its expertise in games of this genre through its “Gangstar” franchise with the latest installment, Gangstar Rio, placing among the Top 10 Grossing apps on the App Store.
“Social card games are considered the most popular social games in Japan. ‘Gang Domination’ will be Gameloft's first social card game, and we're thrilled to work on this project with a leading player in this market such as GREE,” stated Michel Guillemot, President and founder of Gameloft.
“I am very happy to be able to provide a new “Gangs” game of Gameloft, which has strong track record with its “Gangstar” licence. We hope the game will take full advantage of our 190 million users worldwide on our platform.” stated Yoshikazu Tanaka, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GREE.
