FunPlus, the publisher of mobile game Dot Arena and a leading social games company, today announced that it has made a strategic ‘multi-million investment’ in mobile games developer XII Braves (pronounced as twelve braves).

The investment was made through PublishingPlus, a global US$50 million fund launched by FunPlus to grow and promote exceptional independent developers and artists in the gaming industry.

With this, FunPlus becomes the global publisher of Valiant Force — the flagship mobile role playing games (RPG) from XII Braves. Valiant Force is scheduled to begin its soft-launch in selected regions in July 2016.

Moving forward, FunPlus and XII Braves will continue to cooperate on game content development, marketing, social media engagement, and global publishing operations.

“We are thrilled to obtain the global publishing rights for Valiant Force, possibly the first triple-A mobile game developed in Southeast Asia. XII Braves is also the first developer from Asia we have invested in through our PublishingPlus initiative,” said Andy Zhong, Founder and CEO of FunPlus.
