gloops’ “Dainekkyo!! Pro Yakyu Card” Hits 1.5 Million Users On Mobage [Social Games]

“Dainekkyo!! Pro Yakyu Card”, a social baseball card game made by Tokyo-based social game maker GMS (recently named gloops), now has 1.5 million registered users on Mobage.

The English title of the game is “Japan Pro Baseball Card Battle”. It’s available on both Mobage for feature phones and iOS/Android and hit the 1.5 million players mark in just 58 days (gloops launched the game on August 18 this year).

Konami has filed a lawsuit against gloops, claiming that Dainekkyo!! Pro Yakyu Card “infringes on the intellectual property rights of the game mechanics, images, and effects” of their social baseball card game, Professional Baseball Dream Nine (which is available on GREE).
