CMGE signs up latest Battle Bear title Overclock FPS for Asian release

We haven't heard from early iOS gaming success story, Battle Bears developer, SkyVu for awhile.

But the Omaha, Nebraska-based outfit has been keeping busy with its latest mobile game with the cute battling bear franchise - Overclock FPS - hitting the App Store.

Shooting from the paw

The first Battle Bears game to be localised - it supports French, Italian, German, Spanish and Portuguese - Apple featuring has boosted the title's launch.

It's been featured in 117 countries in a Best New Game slot and peaked at #15 in the US iPhone download charts over the weekend.

CEO Ben Vu also thinks the game is well suited to the emerging mobile eSports market, something the developer will be supporting with clans, tournaments, rank mode, spectator mode, and a future Apple TV launch.

Going east

And, more strategically, the developer has also cut a deal with CMGE to bring the game to China and southeast Asia.

The two companies are currently working on a full localisation, as well as game optimisation and art changes.

By partnering with the Battle Bears team, we're going to bring the best multiplayer shooter experience to China and SE Asia," commented CMGE's CEO Ken Jian Xiao.

"I'm very impressed with CMGE's team of veterans from the billion-dollar Crossfire team. We're sharing in-depth data and knowledge to optimize Battle Bears for the core Chinese gamer," added Ben Vu.
