Tokyo-Based Axel Mark To Bring Social Games To The US – Via Mobage [Social Games]

Mobage in the US absolutely needs more games if it wants to continue to call itself a platform. It’s been over a year after launching the English-language platform on Android (and later on iOS), and the number of titles is still well below 100 – and many of them are first-party games.

But today DeNA closed a strategic partnership with Axel Mark under which the Tokyo-based (and listed) company will offer certain social games from Japan to English-speaking Mobage users.

Axel Mark currently operates a handful of social games (the company also has other businesses), which apparently have a combined user base of 1.8 million.

The first game that will hit Mobage Global – in the fall – is Kingdom Chronicle, a social card battle game that was launched in Japan in September 2011 and currently counts over 500,000 users in Japan:

Axel Mark also says that they will cooperate with DeNA in the development of social games for the Japanese and international markets going forward.
