GREE acquires Korean social studio Paprika Lab
GREE continues to build support for its social gaming platform, with the Japanese firm announcing the acquisition of Korean outift Paprika Lab for an undisclosed fee.

The studio – which has worked with GREE in the past – is best known for Facebook game HeroCity, which boasts 150 million monthly active users.


Paprika Lab's games are now set to be deployed across GREE's social gaming platform – which recently rolled out globally in beta form – adding to its growing library of releases.

Indeed, GREE has signed numerous deals with developers and publishers alike in recent months in a bid to bring fresh games to its platform.

The firm also aquired social studio Funzio for $210 million back in May, and has launched its first development house in San Francisco specially designed to deliver titles to appeal to western audiences.
