Konami Announces Star Wars Social Game On GREE [Social Games]

Another IP-based social game in Japan, this time from Konami. The company announced the launch of Star Wars Collection, a social game based on the movie service, for GREE.

Star Wars is obviously one of the biggest franchises out there, even though I doubt it will have the same effect in Japan that the One Piece manga-based social game had on Mobage. In other words, there is no way this will become another Dragon Collection.

Konami explains:

“STAR WARS COLLECTION”┬áis a card game that will have players collecting a rich assortment of characters and vehicles, undertaking missions as they travel from planet to planet throughout the Star Wars universe. The game seamlessly captures the signature Star Wars atmosphere as portrayed in the six films, and will feature Darth Vader, Yoda, R2-D2, and many more characters from the series via stunning photos. There are also plans to feature periodic events based on the original films’ storylines.

Pre-registration has started yesterday. The game will be available on GREE for feature phones and Android handsets next month. An iOS version is scheduled to follow in March.

Here’s the official site for Star Wars Collection.
