Capcom Realigns European Mobile Studio to Support Growing Smartphone Business and Partners With Gameloft for European Distribution Deal

Capcom Mobile, a developer and publisher of mobile games, has made a strategic realigning of the company’s European mobile operations. Effective immediately, the Capcom’s European mobile studio will focus exclusively on the development of games for smartphone platforms, including Apple iPhone, Blackberry, Palm webOS, Windows Mobile and Android.

Additionally, Capcom has struck a European distribution deal with Gameloft to publish six upcoming mobile titles: Resident Evil: Uprising, Street Fighter Alpha, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Lost Planet 2, Dead Rising 2 and Where’s Wally 2. The games are expected to release in 2010.

"Greater resources in both time and manpower are required to remain successful in the mobile marketplace," said Midori Yuasa, President, Capcom Mobile. "By realigning our studio’s focus and entering into strategic distribution deals, Capcom Mobile is able to remain profitable and proactive in our ever evolving industry."

Capcom’s UK studio is expected to produce 10 - 12 titles for smartphone platforms within the next 12 months, beginning with the classic arcade shooter 1942 for iPhone. Additional smartphone development as well as development for North American and European standard devices will continue out of Capcom’s studio in Toronto, Canada.
