DeNA Acquires Gameview

September 15th, 2010 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Companies & M&A | No Comments »

Social gaming giant DeNA has announced the full acquisition of Gameview, a mobile social game developer based in Mountain View, CA in the United States.

Before being named Gameview Studios LLC (June 2010), the company was better known as Bayview Labs LLC. Their top performing titles have been Tap Ranch and Tap Fish on the App Store but the studio is also developing for Android. DeNA will use the acquisition to migrate Gameview’s social gamers onto their Minination platform.

“Our acquisition of Gameview today is congruent with our goal of rapidly expanding our mobile footprint as a leading brand and platform in mobile social gaming,” says Tomoko Namba, CEO of DeNA. “We were impressed by the creativity and passion that the Gameview team has for creating addictive and engaging gaming experiences, we’re excited to welcome them into the DeNA family.”

“The overwhelmingly wide range of games and active users in the community are the formula for success DeNA has utilized on Mobage-town in Japan,” says Namba. “This acquisition will enable DeNA to replicate this success in the smartphone market and MiniNation platform, further expanding DeNA in the global market.”
