imageLittle King’s Story, while a well-received game, released to a cold reception in Japan. As part of an ongoing initiative to pull themselves out of the red, Marvelous are licensing it to a mobile phone developer.

 

Mobile internet portal, CA Mobile, sent out a press release to Japanese blog My Game News Flash, touching upon the features of the mobile adaptation.

 

For the mobile game, the townsfolk tossing action elements were tweaked into a point and click game to make Little King’s Story more accessible to casual players. Also new to the game is a social interaction system by which you can exchange treasures with other players to help complete their collection. Little King’s Story will be use a free-to-play model on mobile phones, although, players will be able to buy certain in-game items via microtransactions.

 

Perhaps a more proper iPhone or iPad version is in order next?

    Didn’t LKS’s developer studio go bankrupt since its release? I can’t help but root for this, even if that same studio isn’t behind it and even if I have no interest in mobile games. Though I can see an iPad version doing decently well, now that you mention it.

      Yeah, both Cing and Marvelous are in pretty bad shape. I’m all for anything that helps either one pull themselves out of the ditch.

        But is mobile gaming really the way to go? I can’t see too much money being made off it. Although Sting seems very keen on it, so maybe there’s a market out there.

          They might as well ride the apple train and start tossing out i-games seeing as how the iphone and ipad *sigh* are selling apps like hot cakes here and there.
