HTML5 developer Legendary Games has partnered with Dublin-based StoryToys to launch the latter's games on Japan's dkids service.

The collaboration will see StoryToy's kid's games launch on the Japan-only children's gaming platform. The first game to launch is based on children's story The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The game was launched on the HTML5 platform in November and has grown to be one of the most popular titles on dkids.

HTML5 is alive

Legendary has developed its own proprietary 3D HTML5 technology that is capable of running VR games, and used its expertise in HTML5 to bring The Very Hungry Caterpillar to the dkids platform.

HTML5 saw a boost in interest recently when Facebook launched its own games platform, Instant Games. Developer GameInsight has already invested $5 million into developing Facebook Messenger titles.
