GungHo and SoftBank Purchase the Majority Share in Finnish Company Supercell

Posted by Andrew Stevens on October 15th, 2013

GungHo Online Entertainment and Japanese Telecommunications Specialist, SoftBank, have purchase a 51 percent stake in the Finnish mobile company, Supercell. Pocket Gamer Biz reports that details released by SoftBank state that GungHo purchased 20 percent of the company, while SoftBank put in for the other 31 percent.

Supercell is known for their hit titles, Clash of Clans and Hay Day, and we've seen a previous relationship between GungHo and Supercell as the two developers took part in a cross promotion for each other's games.

In a blog post on Supercell's website, Masayoshi Son, founder of SoftBank, was quoted saying, “In our quest to become the #1 mobile Internet company, we scour the globe in search of interesting opportunities and right now some of the most exciting companies and innovations are coming out of Finland. Supercell is one of those rare and special companies. While your success is impressive, it is your amazing culture and deep passion that truly inspired me. After getting to know Ilkka and some of the team, it became clear to me that you, like us at Softbank, are on a similar long and aspirational journey to shape the future of entertainment for the next hundred years. And, I'm excited to see an independent Supercell continue to rise with great people and great games, delivering happiness to so many people around the world."

Princess Punt Kicks Fantasy Monsters in the Face. With Flying Knights.

Posted by Rob Rich on November 10th, 2011
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Some princesses are content to sit around and wait to be rescued. They don't mind sitting in their tower/castle/fancy chair until a prince shows up to rescue them or sweep them off their feet. Princess Punt isn't that type of girl. She goes out and does the looking for herself.

Trajectory-based games are nothing new to iOS devices, be they medieval, automotive or avian in nature. The practice of knocking down ramshackle structures with an odd assortment of objects is a popular one, but not many of them involve giving armored soldiers the boot. Much less booting them into all manner of large (and vicious) beasts. Different "weapons" have different effects that can be triggered when the screen is tapped, while shot placement (trajectory, strength, point of impact, etc.) can mean the difference between "teh phat lewtz" and utter failure. It's a weird concept that seems just insane enough to be awesome.

But don't take my word for it. Anyone looking to dropkick noblemen into scaly monstrosities can check out Princess Punt in the App Store right now for absolutely free.
