Developed by Cygames and now published by Kakao Games, World Flipper makes it global debut after the collaboration between the developer and publisher. Video below shows a celebratory speech given by both Cygames Executive Director Kimura Yuito, and Kakao Games CEO Cho KyeHyun:
World Flipper is an action mobile game with “pinball”-like gameplay and 2D style pixel graphics that give it that retro feel with a modern design. It mixes its action-gameplay with collectibles, evolution, and enhancements. Each character in the game belongs to one of six elements, each element triggering special skills. Aside from the main storyline, there are side-story events and boss battles where up to 3 users can play simultaneously.
“Cygames leads the industry with its immersive/high-quality games and we want to take this opportunity collaborating with Cygames and devote our dedication to make World Flipper a game service that will be loved all over the world for a long time.”
Cho KyeHyun – Kakao Games CEO
“I am very happy to be working together with a reliable partner like Kakao Games. We will work very hard with Kakao Games to make ‘World Flipper’ a game that is enjoyable for all.”
Kimura Yuito – Cygames Executive Director
Through this agreement, Kakao Games has the publishing rights for World Flipper in North America, Europe, Southeast Asia, and South Korea. This is the second collaboration between the two companies following the success of Princess Connect! Re:Dive in Korea. This agreement takes the two companies’ collaboration to the global markets. Kakao Games is to begin the preparation for the game, taking the learnings from its past publishing experiences in North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia, to make World Flipper available globally in 2021.
