Zynga has confirmed that their mobile titles Montopia and Ayakashi: Ghost Guild from their Japanese division will be localized outside of Japan. Expect to see the games release on iOS and Google Play in English soon, with Chinese and Korean language versions coming later.
“From baseball cards to the introduction of online card collecting games in the 1990s, collecting is a gameplay mechanic as old as time,” said Scott Koenigsberg, General Manager of Games, Zynga. “Montopia and Ayakashi: Ghost Guild are fun, social, and high-quality games that expand our global mobile games portfolio into the RPG category, and we hope our players across the world enjoy playing as much as we do.”
“We’re very excited about expanding to RPGs and bringing these games to the global market,” he added. “Here in the U.S., the RPG market has blossomed recently. It may have been an underserved market here.”
