SuperGaming, which is a social gaming platform, has now secured $1.3 million in the funding round from the Tokyo based consulting and business development firm Dream Incubator, AET Fund, the venture capital arm of the Japanese mobile gaming form Akatsuki and Better Capital.
The funds will now be going to launch SuperGaming social platform for the casual gamers that provide a genre of casual, social, and party games. It also plans to enter the international market in the coming year, said the announcement.
“Globally, games like Fortnite are becoming the new social network. They are a much more fun and authentic way of hanging out with friends than commenting on photos. However, the problem with large scale games like Fortnite is that they are restricted to a more hard-core gaming audience, typically the young male demographic. What we are building is a party hub around casual games, which are played by a much larger audience to the tune of billions,” Roby John, co-founder, and chief executive at SuperGaming, said.
