Building on Million Arthur success, Shanda licenses Sega's Chain Chronicle

Having experienced strong success with Square Enix's Million Arthur, Chinese publisher Shanda Games is now looking to Sega for its next hit.

It's signed a deal with Sega Networks - its mobile F2P arm - over new role-playing card game Chain Chronicle.

Shanda now has the operating rights for iOS and Android release in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and South Korea.

Quality pipeline

Released in the summer of 2013 in Japan, Chain Chronicle has been a top 10 top grossing game on Google Play and the App Store.

"The licensing of Chain Chronicle is another example of our commitment to securing the highest quality mobile games for our platform," said Shanda CEO Xiangdong Zhang.

"Its addition to our already solid pipeline is certain to add to the growth momentum we picked up with Million Arthur which was one of the most successful mobile games launched in China this year."

For its most recent financial quarter, Shanda revealed mobile game sales of $25 million, up 50 percent compared to the previous quarter.
