The new partnership will kick off with the launch of two new Moshi Monsters mobile games on the Gree Platform, set for release in Q4 2012.

The mobile game will expand on Moshi Monster's cross-continent success by delivering fully localised mobile games in multiple languages, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin and more.

"Our fans love tablets and smartphones so we're really excited to take our much loved characters and stories to these new platforms," said Michael Acton Smith, founder and CEO of Mind Candy.

"Gree has achieved phenomenal success and we're looking forward to working with them on these two games."

Yoshikazu Tanaka, founder and chief executive officer of Gree, commented: "We're really excited to work with Mind Candy to bring Moshi Monsters to our global mobile community and to the Gree Platform. Moshi Monsters is a leader in the online industry and has built a great and loyal following.

"Gree is delighted to be a part of the franchise's move to mobile and believes the relationship is a great opportunity to further illustrate Gree's on-going commitment to bringing quality content for all gamers to the new platform."

As part of its move into the mobile gaming industry, Mind Candy is building an in-house team to handle mobile partnerships and the internal development of all mobile titles, including several games and apps set for release throughout 2012.
