We’re delighted that Shanda Games feels that MouseHunt is a perfect fit for the Chinese audience. Everyone at HitGrab is looking forward to building our relationship with Shanda Games in the years to come.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) June 28, 2011
HitGrab Inc., a North American pioneer and leading innovator in the social gaming industry, has partnered with China’s leading online game company, Shanda Games, to launch MouseHunt on RenRen, one of the most popular social networks in China. MouseHunt is an award-winning social game where players are hired by the King of Gnawnia to catch the fantastical mice plaguing the kingdom. MouseHunt is one of the industry’s longest-running hit social games, and has garnered a strong following since its launch in early 2008.
Shanda Games offers a portfolio of diversified online games including some of China’s most popular massively multi-player online role-playing games (MMORPGs) and advanced casual online games.
Since only a fraction of China’s entertainment content can come from foreign countries, it is difficult for a Western media company to access the Chinese market. The partnership between HitGrab and Shanda Games is a monumental development for the social gaming industry, and marks one of very few that occur between Western and Chinese companies.
“We are immensely honored to have the opportunity to work with the people at Shanda Games, and we’re delighted that they feel that MouseHunt is a perfect fit for the Chinese audience. Everyone at HitGrab is looking forward to building our relationship with Shanda Games in the years to come,” states Joel Auge, CEO of HitGrab Inc.
