Japanese gaming developers Cave are to bring their iOS wares over to Android following the success of their Dodonpachi Resurrection, Mushihimesama Bug Panic and DeathSmiles apps.
Mikio Watanabe, Chief Operating Officer of Cave, announced the move in an interview with PocketGamer promising to mature the company’s social and casual games roster. “Let me make it clear – Cave won’t turn its back on our fanbase,” stated Watanabe. “We’re going to keep making hardcore games, and at the same time we’ll be growing our social and casual games divisions.”
“As you know, Android has some difficult specifications limits, in terms of screen size, CPU and memory, particularly for our games. However, thanks to the achievements of our engineers I think we’ll have some good news for people soon.”
Cave may be an relatively unknown operator in mobile gaming but the company has begun to expand recently, having enjoyed success with Castle Creator and started work with EA on a version of SimCity. With several gaming developers starting to dip their toes into Android waters, Cave will certainly make a welcome addition to the Google OS’ ecosystem.
