Sega and Gumi are now partners, bringing Chain Chronicle to the West

Sega Networks and Gumi have partnered to bring Sega's Japanese games to new territories, the companies announced today.

First up, the new partnership will bring a localized version of the Japanese role-playing game Chain Chronicle to territories outside of Japan later this year. In the game, players take on the role of a soldier who must build and army and protect the land of Yugdo from the Black Army, unlocking stories for party members as the game progresses.

"The alliance and capital investment in Gumi will lead to more of our popular Japanese games making the leap to markets around the globe, starting with one of our biggest hits, Chain Chronicle," said Haruki Satomi, CEO of Sega Networks. "The publishing experience and support that Gumi can provide for this genre of games has already been proven with the success of Brave Frontier and we're confident in their ability to execute."

In a recent earnings report, Sega called out mobile popular games like Chain Chronicle and Puyopuyo!! Quest for their performance.

"Sega Networks provides some of the most enjoyable and well-known entertainment experiences to people throughout the world," said Gumi CEO Hironao Kunimitsu. "We are privileged and thrilled to build a robust strategic partnership that will advance Gumi's overseas operations and global publishing business to the next level."
