Famitsu Mobage: Mobage Gets Its Own Printed Magazine [Social Games]

In December 2010, Japan-based publisher Eastpress started distributing Appli Style, the first (printed) magazine on social games in the world. And now DeNA, or rather its social games platform Mobage, gets its own magazine, too.

The so- called Famitsu Mobage has 96 pages (published by Enterbrain), available in Japan only and priced at 600 yen ($7.20). Titles featured include Kaitou Royal (of course), Shenmue-Gai (Shenmue City), Disney MyLand, etc.

I just bought it, and I don’t want to know what DeNA paid Enterbrain to create the magazine and make it available nationwide:
