Cygames has conquered mobile: Now it’s coming for consoles

Cygames had a rather unassuming booth at this year’s E3. Actually, “booth” would be the wrong word to describe it. It was a cubicle, hidden in plain sight with the other cubicles that filled the concourse of the Los Angeles Convention Center. It didn’t need a big, flashy booth because it wasn’t at E3 to hype the media up for an upcoming game. Rather, after years of getting its feet firmly planted in the mobile realm, this appearance at E3 was its way of laying the groundwork for what’s to come. Sort of a tune-up of its seven trumpets.

David McCarthy, Director of Western Marketing for Cygames, was on hand to walk me through two of its games currently in development. While I can’t tell you about everything I saw, I will say when I walked out of that hour-long meeting, my body warm from the sake I was served, I knew I had witnessed the birth of the next great Japanese developer.
