Fightback - (by Ninja Theory/Chillingo Ltd.) [Universal]

Chillingo, leading independent mobile games publisher and division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA), today announced that they are partnering with prominent Cambridge, UK-based independent video game developer Ninja Theory Ltd. to publish the studio’s first mobile game, Fightback for the App Store and Google Play™.

From the award-winning studio behind Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and DmC: Devil May Cry, Ninja Theory’s Fightback is a thrilling free-to-play action game with a striking 80s action movie vibe and a revolutionary touch-based combat system.

“Chillingo is very excited to collaborate with such a talented, critically-acclaimed studio to help shape their first title for the mobile market,” states Ed Rumley, COO, Chillingo. “Our team is working closely with Ninja Theory to ensure Fightback delivers a phenomenal experience for mobile and tablet devices.”

“Mobile and tablet gaming is a phenomenon that we just couldn’t ignore as a studio and we’re very proud to be working with one of the industry’s heavy-weights on bringing Fightback to market. Ninja Theory has always strived for the highest production values and that absolutely remains the case in this exciting new space,” said Dominic Matthews, Product Manager, Ninja Theory Ltd.

Fightback is slated to launch this summer. Hands-on previews will be shared with press at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles. Additional details and information will be available at www.chillingo.com in the coming months.
