DeNA To Turn Hit Anime Movies Into Social Games On Mobage [Social Games]

DeNA has announced they have partnered up with Tokyo-based anime production company Aniplex to bring social games based on anime titles from the Aniplex catalog to Mobage users.

The first title to be turned into a Mobage game is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, an anime series that’s based on a manga (which is super-popular not only in Japan but also in other parts of the world).

DeNA explains:

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a social role-playing game (RPG) which will feature many of the beloved classic characters from the original Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood anime franchise. Players will perform “transmutations” to upgrade their weapons and to progress in the story, while they combat or collaborate with other players via the Mobage network.

For Mobage for feature phones, the game will be rolled out on June 28, followed by “Mobage for Smartphone” in August.
