What the heck is gloops? Those that have watched Texas Rangers baseball games, especially when recent Japanese import Yu Darvish was pitching, may have noticed a sign advertising something called gloops, with no explanation as to what the heck a gloop is. Well, they’re a Japanese social game developer that’s making a push into the western market, and one of their first titles is a partnership with Mobage, Legend Cards.
This anime-inspired trading card game has players dueling their friends and other opponents for supremacy, along with building the best deck possible, with the goal being to collect Legendary Cards to become number one. The game has limited-time events as well, with battles against either computer-controlled or human opponents, to help get rewards such as rare cards. Legend Cards has launched as an Android exclusive on Google Play, and is available now in English for western audiences. With GREE and Mobage’s DeNA making big pushes into the US and western market as a whole, expect to see more Japanese developers and their games getting released on mobile in the coming months.
