The Japanese mobile social gaming giant GREE has announced that it is planning to establish a wholly owned subsidiary in Vancouver called GREE Canada Ltd. The company believes that this will help with its North American plans as it will enable it to coordinate with its other regional office, GREE International which is located in San Francisco.
This is not GREE’s first venture into Canada, last April the company announced a minority investment in Vancouver based IUGO Mobile Entertainment.
There doesn’t appear to be a connection between this investment and the latest news, but a company spokesman said that both will help to strengthen their foothold in the North American Market.
GREE has already launched a number of games designed for the North American and Canadian markets.
Its first game, Zombie Jombie, has been downloaded over a million times and is charting reasonably well on the top-grossing charts. Furthermore, last month GREE also globally released its game Gang Domination, a social card game.
There are sure to be many more fantastic releases from GREE and mobile gamers should definitely keep an eye on the new GREE Canada.
