LOS ANGELES, CA– February 1, 2011–Capcom® Mobile, a leading developer and publisher of video games, today announced plans to publish VisualDreams’ zany platformer, Herman The Hermit, on the Apple App Store.

We hope that this will be the first of many iOS co-publishing deals between Capcom Mobile and talented smartphone game developers.”
