In some quarters of the games community, there is still a consensus that mobile titles are the lowest common denominator. This is far from the truth, with triple-A developers now turning their attention to the platform more than ever before.
The latest to do this is Sheffield-based Sumo Digital, which has just opened a brand-new studio dedicated to mobile games in the quaint town of Leamington Spa.
No stranger to the concept, the firm has worked on numerous mobile releases such as Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.
Since being founded in 2003, one of the main business models that have helped Sumo not only survive but succeed is by developing IP from other companies. The majority of its business has concerned the console/PC space, such as Mortal Kombat, Dead Island and the LittleBigPlanet series falling under this banner.
Sumo Digital, part of the Sumo Group PLC (LON:SUMO) is an award-winning business providing creative and development services to the video games and entertainment industries, from studios in Sheffield, Newcastle, Nottingham, Pune (India) and Vancouver (Canada).
