Smurfs’ Village for iOS has reached 15 million downloads and is the top-grossing app of the Apple App Store in 69 countries, according to Capcom. The Android version of Smurfs’ Village will be released on September 28, 2011.
“The market for games used on mobile devices continues to grow rapidly primarily because of the increasing use of smartphones worldwide and the popularity of social games. Sales of Android devices are posting strong growth, ranking first in global sales volume due to the use of Android as a platform for smartphones,” wrote Capcom president Haruhiro Tsujimoto. “We here at Capcom are committed to the development of new and creative social games and plan to take the rapidly expanding mobile market by storm through our two-pronged strategy, one primary ‘Capcom’ brand and another second ‘Beeline’ brand. Our Capcom will continue to focus on home console systems, which will make synergy effects by both brands.”
