Studio X takes LEGO® Batman™ to mobile

Studio X, the publishing arm of award-winning mobile media company Player X has seized the exclusive mobile games rights to console game phenomenon LEGO® Batman™. Under the terms of the exclusive deal with publisher TT Games, Studio X has three-year global rights to distribute the mobile game.

The LEGO franchise is one of the biggest game franchises ever. Co-releasing with the cross-platform LEGO® Batman™: The Videogame which is published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the Mobile LEGO Batman Game is now available on your mobile phone.

“We are delighted to be working with TT Games on one of the best-selling console games in the world. The LEGO® brand has consistently delivered quality gameplay to a huge installed base of gamers and we are convinced we will replicate this success with the mobile game version,” said Tony Pearce, Player X CEO.

LEGO® Batman™: The Mobile Game is co-published by TT Games and Studio X, and developed by Cobra Mobile. Featuring context-sensitive one thumb controls, LEGO® Batman™: The Mobile Game lets you move around by swinging about the city and taking out enemies with the BATARANG, to getting up close and personal with them just like the caped crime-fighter himself. Save GOTHAM from the six super-criminals who are trying to take the city apart piece by piece.

The announcement follows the recent rebranding of Player X into two operating divisions, Player X Distribution and Studio X. The LEGO® Batman™ deal follows Studio X’s recent acquisition of two PlayStation® titles for mobile, the first time Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has allowed its console content to be licensed to a third party.
