Zynga launches FarmVille 3 in Japan | Pocket Gamer.biz
Zynga has revealed that it has released FarmVille 3 in Japan on the App Store and Google Play.
FarmVille 3 was launched in the majority of countries around the world on November 4, 2021, but did not reach some countries, including Japan. The game’s release in Japan brought with it all current and previously released content for the title.
“With millions of global downloads since its global launch, FarmVille 3 will delight new players in Japan with the same fun and excitement that fans around the world enjoy,” said Zynga Publishing President Bernard Kim.
“We’re thrilled to welcome a new global audience to experience raising adorable animals on their own farm in one of Zynga’s most iconic franchises.”
FarmVille 3 goes to Japan
Very often games are released in Japan and don’t see a release outside of the country and with such a high number of mobile gamers, it’s surprising that FarmVille 3 was not released in the country when it launched.
Of course, in Japan, Zynga competes with the hugely popular midcore gaming market, which is currently dominated by other games such as Genshin Impact, Ume Musume, Pretty Derby, and Fate/Grand Order, making access more difficult.
However, elsewhere, three Zynga subsidiaries – Peak Games, Rollic Games and Gram Games – are among the highest-earning internet companies in Turkey. Each of these studios focuses on hypercasual and casual games which have proven to be highly successful for the mobile games industry in the region.
