Founder and Group CEO, Lars Wingefors adds that this new IP swoop are not “financially material acquisitions,” but are due to the companies love for “these type of games.” Further, the CEO revealed that it has received a lot of messages from fans that encouraged it to add said games to its portfolio.

Wingefors adds:

 “Among these titles, Sphinx (and the Cursed Mummy) is very well suited for the Nintendo audience – which we love to support.”
