In summer of 2018, Nintendo will release “Dragalia Lost,” an all-new original action RPG application designed by Cygames for smart devices. Cygames has been co-developing and will jointly operate the game with Nintendo, bringing to life the shared vision of a new gaming experience with worldwide appeal.
The gaming application will be released globally, starting with Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau. With the support of Nintendo’s group companies, it will launch in North America and Europe as well. For the purpose of facilitating the partnership, Nintendo will obtain approximately 5 percent of Cygames’s issued stocks mainly through a third party allocation of its treasury stock.

3. Future Outlook
There is no transfer of CyberAgent’s shares of Cygames, hence the impact of this partnership on the consolidated financial results of CyberAgent will be minor. “Dragalia Lost,” the original action RPG application that Cygames and Nintendo have been co-developing and will jointly operate is not factored into this fiscal year’s business forecast which was published on October 26, 2017.
