Game Freak Acquires Mobile Developer Koa Games
With Pokemon apps already being on the app store and Pokemon Go coming in the near future, it already seemed pretty clear that Game Freak and the Pokemon Company have plans to move further in the world of mobile gaming. But now, it seems like we may have another reason to believe that this is the case.
Why? Because apparently, Game Freak has now bought Koa Games, a smartphone game developer. Here’s a tweet from Takashi Mochizuki of the Wall Street Journal mentioning it:

So yes, it seems pretty clear that Game Freak do indeed have plans to make more mobile apps. Maybe even some that aren’t Pokemon based, given their recent releases of HarmoKnight and Tempo the Badass Elephant.
