AT&T and social gaming publisher ngmoco have announced a partnership that will bring Mobage social games (from ngmoco’s parent company DeNA) to AT&T Android customers. The app will apparently be available through the Android Market, but may be restricted to AT&T customers. Carriers have the ability to restrict the display of certain apps on the Market to users, and to display certain apps to certain carriers. This may be the groundwork for games like Pocket Frogs, previously announced for Android via Mobage’s tools, to be released to Android owners for the first time. As well, over 100 other games were promised through Mobage when Pocket Frogs was announced, so AT&T owners may soon be getting their hands on a bunch of these titles. AT&T has been making a bigger commitment to gaming, as evidenced by this, their partnership with OpenFeint, and the upcoming release of the Xperia Play on their network.
