Kakao Games has signed the global publishing rights for World Flipper, a new mobile game from Cygames.
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 simultaneously.
Through this agreement, Kakao Games has the publishing rights for World Flipper in North America, Europe, Southeast Asia, and South Korea. This is the second collaboration between the two companies following the success of Princess Connect! Re:Dive in Korea. This agreement takes the two companies’ collaboration to the global markets. Kakao Games is to begin the preparation 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.
Alongside this announcement, Kakao Games also released a celebratory video of Cygames Executive Director Kimura Yuito, and Kakao Games CEO Cho KyeHyun. The video 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 will be available at a later date.
