Julkaistu 30.03.2017

Koukoi Games, developer of Crashing Season, today announced a new partnership with FoxNext Games.

The partnership was formed as an exciting opportunity to develop a tie-in mobile game for the upcoming film, Ferdinand. The heartwarming comedy adventure from Blue Sky Studios is helmed by Carlos Saldanha (Rio, Ice Age).

“Feel the beat with Ferdinand and his friends in this cheery and colorful idle puzzle game that brings the beloved character and spirit of Spain to life,” said Rick Phillips, EVP of FoxNext Games.

“When mobile markets evolve, offering new and difficult challenges, it's important to aim at strategic partnerships. Ferdinand is a story we all know and love, and as the Intellectual Property market continues to grow, we have a strong focus towards it. It's best to approach these markets partnered with a Hollywood Studio that has a strong track record and exciting IP. This is a major development for Koukoi, and promises a bright future for the studio." says Antti Kananen, CEO of Koukoi Games.
