SYBO, the creators of internationally successful Subway Surfers, announced the worldwide launch of their new mobile game, Blades of Brim, now available exclusively on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Blades of Brim is a new generation endless runner mobile game. With innovative new gameplay and stunning visuals, Blades of Brim brings fast-paced combat, a whole new crew of runners, and an epic and enchanting universe to the genre. Players can choose from a variety of characters, call on epic mounts, and go on heroic quests while battling enemies in a world of adventure.
Blades of Brim launches simultaneously in the lucrative Chinese mobile games market as part of this worldwide launch. SYBO has partnered with mobile game publisher Spellgun, to localize and release Blades of Brim in all 29 Chinese provinces.
The innovative design of this next generation runner is sure to appeal to Chinese players, where revenue from mobile games is reported to overtake the U.S. in 2016. SYBO’s previous game, Subway Surfers, enjoyed success in China and was among the top 10 casual mobiles games in China.
“By working with Spellgun/Talkweb on Blades of Brim in China we can enhance the worldwide SYBO experience,” said Bodie Jahn-Mulliner, CEO and Co-Founder of SYBO and Sylvester Rishøj Jensen, Creative Director and Co-Founder of SYBO.
"Blades of Brim has everything that Chinese players would want in a new mobile game -- cutting-edge graphics, fast paced action, and a wonderfully imaginative world with dragons, magic, and cool heroes. Our expectations for the game’s performance in China is extremely high and we are very happy that SYBO selected Spellgun as their partner for the China market,” said James Zhang, CEO of Spellgun.
SYBO is one of only a few game developers to simultaneously release a mobile game in both China and the Western markets.
