Cartoon Network has partnered with Korean game developer SundayToz for a mobile puzzle game around the network’s hit animated series, We Bare Bears. A global launch is expected early 2018.
The free match 3-style and city-builder game will feature storytelling and video from the series, as well as competitive features such as leader-boards where friends can challenge one another.
“It’s exciting to partner with SundayToz on a new global mobile game for We Bare Bears,” said Chris Waldron, Vice President of Cartoon Network Digital Products and Games. “They connect with the fun, light-hearted tone of the series; and we know they’ll deliver a game our fans won’t want to put down.”
Phil Nelson, Turner’s Managing Director for North Asia and Southeast Asia Pacific, added: “We are extremely pleased to be working with a world-class game developer like SundayToz. Developing this product here in Asia for an international market is a great example of global collaboration.”
SundayToz is well known for its other puzzle games, particularly the “Anipang” series which was launched in 2013. As of January 2017, the company’s products have been downloaded more than 82 million times.
Co-Founder and CEO Kevin Jungwoong Lee said, “SundayToz has been pursuing the creation of a new gaming culture through the development of games like these. This much-anticipated release combines SundayToz and Cartoon Network’s collaborative efforts, and together we will launch an exceptional product.”\
This is but the latest game to come out of Cartoon Network’s lineup of hit animated series. And no doubt more will come soon.
