Mobile game publisher Autumn Games has closed a deal with LINE Corporation to distribute its upcoming fighting game Skullgirls across the globe.
The game is a free-to-play mobile adaptation of the console game Skullgirls, originally developed by Lab Zero.
The mobile edition is being developed by Hidden Variable Studios, best known for casual puzzler Threes!.
Looking forward to great success
This is the first time LINE has agreed to a distribution deal with a US-based publisher. It has previously seen global success with titles such as Disney Tsum Tsum, which has managed 60 million downloads.
"We're honored to partner with LINE and its more than 220 million monthly active users, who are an important part of the mobile social fabric globally," said Jason Donnell, co-founder of Autumn Games.
"We look forward to great success together bringing our highly anticipated Skullgirls mobile franchise to gamers worldwide."
Skullgirls is expected to launch on Android and iOS in Spring 2017. It is already available in soft launch on iOS in the Philippines.
