Ngmoco and parent company DeNA have announced that the Mobage mobile social network has launched an English-language version. It’s currently very game oriented (with 30 million users and $1.3 billion in revenue), but eventually Ngmoco hopes to add more social features to make it more akin to a mobile version of Facebook.

“Mobage’s release outside of Japan marks the next step in our company’s global expansion,” said Ngmoco CEO Neil Young. “The opportunity in front of us is to build Mobage into the definitive destination for games and entertainment across territories and mobile operating systems. We’re tremendously excited about the potential for the platform, both as a great way for players to experience the very best games and for developers to access a global audience easily and effectively.”
