Koukoi Games ties the knot with FoxNext Games
The Finnish game studio and developer of Crashing Season has announced a new partnership with FoxNext Games.
According to the press release by Koukoi Games, the partnership was formed as “an exciting opportunity to develop a tie-in mobile game for the upcoming film, Ferdinand”. The film, a comedy adventure from Blue Sky Studios, is directed by Carlos Saldanha.
“When mobile markets evolve, offering new and difficult challenges, it’s important to aim at strategic partnerships,” says Antti Kananen, CEO of Koukoi Games. “Ferdinand is a story we all know and love, and as the Intellectual Property market continues to grow, we have a strong focus towards it. It’s best to approach these markets partnered with a Hollywood Studio that has a strong track record and exciting IP.”
FoxNext Games is a division of the FoxNext group, which produces games and apps based on Twentieth Century Fox’s film and television properties.
Good News from Finland featured Koukoi Games in 2015, when the company landed significant funding without having published a single game. Since then, Koukoi Games has grown global, including in MENA, Japan and China.
