On a New Gaming Application for Smart Devices

CyberAgent

Cygames, Inc. (HQ: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; President: Koichi Watanabe, hereinafter referred as “Cygames”), a consolidated subsidiary of CyberAgent, Inc.

(HQ: Minami-ku, Kyoto; Representative Director and President: Tatsumi Kimishima, hereinafter referred as “Nintendo”) reached a business agreement to partner on a new gaming application for smart devices.
1.    Context of Partnership
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.
