Not only of Zyngas new purchase of Newtoy, We Rule, Words with Friends, and Chess with Friends developers, he speaks of the oncoming massively successful (I suppose he hopes) advent of Mafia Wars on Android. Mafia Wars will be coming to Android this month. Ko, who has only been in the job one month, says he knew Zynga needed to make a move on Android quickly when he started the job and that there will be more to come from Zynga on Google’s platform.
Zynga is expanding into Japan and going straight to the mobile market there. ‘Farm Village’ (as Farmville is called in Japan) is currently available for smartphones, although it will be moving onto other lower-spec feature phones as it looks to provide the best fit for the market.
