London, United Kingdom - August 3, 2012 - GREE today announced the opening

of a new game development studio and GREE UK's planned relocation in

September to a new office in the heart of East London's vibrant Tech City,

known by digital innovators as 'Silicon Roundabout'. The new studio, which

will develop for GREE's mobile social games, is being opened as part of

GREE's aggressive expansion in Europe alongside other regions such as North

America, where it recently announced a new Vancouver studio.

The London studio will create exciting employment opportunities within the

mobile gaming sector in Europe. GREE UK currently has approximately 20

employees and has been proactively increasing headcount to staff its

development, developer relations, marketing and customer support functions.

More recruitment opportunities are available with GREE's UK and European

operations in engineering, art, and game production, all of which can be

Ryotaro Shima, Senior Vice President, EML Business Department, GREE, Inc.

and CEO, GREE UK Limited, said, "The formation of a UK studio is

strategically significant on many levels. Primarily it will allow us to

focus on Western content, keyed to local social trends, as well as tailoring

content for global propositions. It also reinforces GREE's      commitment

to growth within European markets." Regarding the new office location, Shima

added, "The London area known as Silicon Roundabout has grown rapidly as

a community of digital innovators and creative forward-thinkers, making it

the      obvious location for GREE to base UK operations."

Today at the Global Business Summit on ICT held at the British Business

Embassy, George Osborne, Chancellor of the Exchequer, said: "The Government

is determined to make Britain the technology centre of Europe, with the

London's Tech City at its heart. London 2012 is the perfect stage to show

investors and entrepreneurs how much we have already achieved, and the

exciting potential of what is to come. We are also proud to demonstrate the

world-class innovation of the British tech industry, which is helping to

deliver the most digitally-advanced Games in history."

GREE will exhibit at the forthcoming gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany

from August 15 to 19, where members of the UK recruitment team will be on

hand to discuss employment opportunities.
