October 8, 2021 - Drecom Co., Ltd.(Head office: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Yuki Naito) entered a capital and business alliance with Madorca Inc. (Head office: Seoul, Republic of Korea; CEO: Na Jiung) and agreed to collaborate in the development and operation of mobile games. The new mobile game "mikonote", which has been developed under the collaboration, will be released this winter.
1. Purpose and Details of the Capital and Business Alliance
Drecom aims to further expand its mainstay game business and focus on expanding its presence not only in the domestic market but also in overseas markets, aiming to become a global-scale mobile game developer and operator. In the midst of these efforts, we have positioned collaboration with excellent game development companies that complement Drecom's weaknesses as an important strategic means. Especially, based on the belief that cel-shading will become mainstream in mobile games in the future, we have been seeking collaboration with development companies that have strengths in 3D graphics technology based on console technology.
Madorca has strengths in cel-shading 3D technology, possesses its own engine, and has been developing high quality games with a small number of elite staff under its excellent management.
With the aim of increasing the probability of "mikonote" becoming a global hit and further strengthening the relationship, the two companies have established a capital and business alliance.
