Chocobot Games: RockYou Asia Renames Itself, Reduces Capital [Social Games]

RockYou Asia won’t be called Rockyou Asia anymore: according to a report on Japanese news site Social Game Info, the US company renamed its Tokyo subsidiary to “Chocobot Games” (or “Choco Bot Games”, there is no English transcript yet).

I have no idea why RockYou Asia would do that, but the name change isn’t the only thing: it looks like the the company also reduced its capital.

RockYou Asia isn’t mentioning or confirming any of this at this point, neither on its Japanese nor English corporate website – maybe they will deliver details later.

The company recently shut down four games on Mixi, but it’s also active on Mobage and GREE.
