Capcom to Launch Three Social Games for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad This Holiday Season

Capcom to Release Three Freemium Games on Apple App Store

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) - Capcom® Mobile, a leading developer and publisher of video games, today announced that they will be bringing three new social games to the iPhone platform. The first title, Lil' Pirates, will be available on the App Store later this month with Zombie Café and a third licensed title based off a children's entertainment property following in November. The development of more accessible general audience games is in line with Capcom Mobile's strategy of reaching a more casual audience as powerful smartphones become more ubiquitous and mass market.

"The release of these titles marks a new direction for the company as we complement our traditional premium pricing model with freemium social games for our customers," said Midori Yuasa, President and COO, Capcom Interactive, Inc. "By creating a line of casual freemium games we can appeal to consumers not serviced by our more 'hardcore' IP and cast a much wider net over the burgeoning smartphone app marketplace."

In Lil' Pirates the player recruits their own band of scurvy dogs and sets upon the high seas seeking, adventure, treasure and camaraderie. Starting with a small ship and a tiny crew of scallywags, players can upgrade their vessel and expand their crew by undertaking special missions and jobs. Once they start to amass resources and loot, players will be able to battle other vessels, play mini games with the crew and bury booty to increase its value. More than 100 premium content items including ship upgrades and custom gear will be available at launch as DLC. Lil' Pirates is being developed by IUGO Mobile Entertainment and will be available for free on the App Store.

In Zombie Café the player partners with an evil corporation to use zombies as free labor to build their café empire. To thrive, players must prepare food, direct their zombie staff and manage supplies. If the competition gets too fierce they can always direct their zombie workers to attack a neighboring café and steal their secret recipes. Lil' Pirates will be available for free on the Apple App store and is expected to release in November.
