A video game publisher is announcing it’s gained the right to Fall Guys in a specific region. This game hasn’t even been out for that long, but it’s an incredibly popular game in PC and PS4. Fans may be excited to hear that Fall Guys may come to mobile sometime soon. Chinese games publisher Bilibili just came out with the news that it has secured the rights to Fall Guys mobile, but only in that region. This game is popular enough that a lot of people want to play it on mobile.
It’s confusing to some people wondering why Fall Guys would come to Chinese markets first. Because the game is popular all over the world, it’s peculiar that only Chinese markets would be getting access and not also Western markets. And given how simplified the game’s format and controls are, it would seem that Fall Guys would be relatively easy to adapt to mobile demands. Games like Fortnite have proven to be very adaptable and successful from console to mobile. So, it would make sense for Fall Guys to follow a similar path.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Mobile Announced from a Twitter post
It seems strange that Bilibili is announcing a mobile version just a few days after the Fall Guys official Twitter explicitly tweeted that “any ads for a mobile version” are scams. There’s also the fact that while Bilibili announced the acquisition of the rights on its website. Yet, neither the Mediatonic nor Fall Guys official Twitter accounts have confirmed any such thing. Even when leaks have hinted at Fall Guys coming to Switch, official sources have only come forward with confirmed info.
Mediatonic has stated that it wants Fall Guys to come to different platforms. And that cross-play is something the company wants to focus on for the future. And, indeed, the Chinese mobile gaming market exists somewhat separated from the Western market. Then, it’s entirely possible that Bilibili struck a unique deal with Mediatonic that the Fall Guys devs just haven’t formally announced yet.
Regardless of the legitimacy of this announcement, hopefully, players can hope to see some more fun Fall Guys updates in the future. Mediatonic is growing fast thanks to its game’s massive popularity, so Western mobile players hopefully won’t have to wait too long for their turn.
Fall Guys is available now on PC and PS4.
