Success Corp and Beeworks have been pretty successful recently thanks to Touch Detective. Well, more specifically Funghi, the macot mushroom from the Touch Detective series, who is a star in Japan. While not as popular as say Hello Kitty, Funghi appears on all sorts of things from cell phone charms to presents inside crane machines.


The are a series of Funghi games in Japan for mobile phones and soon the Nintendo 3DS. Madhouse, the animation studio behind Death Note and the Persona 4: Golden opening movie, made a trailer for Nfunfu Cup Funghi’s Big Sports Meet which is a preview of the next Funghi project.
