Gree offers global SNS game platform

Kyodo

Mobile phone game site operator Gree Inc. said Thursday it has started providing a global platform for social network games, enabling developers to distribute games for up to 153 countries.

The platform, released after unifying the platforms of Gree and U.S.-based OpenFeint Inc., which Gree has acquired, is now available in both English and Japanese with plans to launch more than 60 titles and encompass 14 more languages by September, it said.

With the platform’s launch, developers will be able to provide games to registered users worldwide without having to develop them for multiple platforms.
