As it was officially announced earlier in April, we have partnered up with Konami to help expand their mobile branch in North America.
Konami is best known for classic titles such as Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, and Castlevania, which have become some of the most successful franchises in recent decades. More recently, they have been extremely successful in mobile development in Japan. However, according to PocketGamer, Konami’s mobile representation in the West is not as prevalent and hope to change that by working with independent developers.
In yesterday’s Konami Pre-E3 show, Director of Digital Publishing for Konami Digital Entertainment, John Coligan, announced two upcoming mobile titles we are working on. The first being Domo Jump and the slot machine based game Slot Revolution, which we are co-developing with Konami’s development studio in Orange County (OCDS).

Are you still waiting for that break to spend some quality time with Halo 4? Well, we’ve got something for you to kill the time with and get your Halo fix via your Android or iOS device in the meantime.
With a lot of us being huge Halo fans, we were pleased to have worked in a development partnership with Ogmento to bring you all this fun and engaging app in time for the Halo 4 release. Ogmento is all about location-based games where the world is your platform. With that in mind, once you acquire the app, prepare to see all the 7-Eleven stores near you. What’s in it for the players? You will be able to win digital Halo 4 gear such as Double XP, a Ghost prop avatar (for Canada), or a Custom Locus Helmet (for U.S.). All you have to do is check in to 7-Elevens, become the King, and defend your turf through your smartphone. If you find yourself short of ammo, all you need to do is scan the front of a Mountain Dew bottle or bag of Doritos. If you earn sufficient points, you will be sent an unlock code for special DLC for Halo 4.
It’s been a great week for Spartacus Legends. We were especially excited to see CNN call Spartacus Legends one of the five games to watch from Comic Con 2012. They were particularly interested in one of the game’s more hardcore features: “One catch that’s sure to pique the interest of fighting fans is that when a warrior has fallen in combat, if the victor decides to vanquish his opponent, that character is dead forever.”
As a bonus video, check out GamerLiveTV‘s interview with Spartacus’s Liam McIntyre, in which he discusses the game.
We’re very proud to announce that we’re developing Spartacus Legends, an upcoming Xbox Live and Playstation Network game published by Ubisoft. Spartacus Legends will be playable this weekend at Comic-Con in the Ubisoft and Starz Media booths.
