Gameloft continues to expand upon its partnership with Chinese game developer and platform creator CocoaChina, announcing the localization of two upcoming titles to the Chinese market.

Gameloft’s Asphalt 8: Airborne (pictured) and Dungeon Hunter 4 are next in line to be brought to Chinese players, using CocoChina’s localized strategies in monetization, piracy-prevention and more.

CocoaChina and Gameloft first partnered earlier this year for the Chinese Android launch of Zombiewood.

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with CocoaChina/Chukong with Dungeon Hunter 4 and our next hit Asphalt 8: Airborne,” said Eric Tan, country manager, China at Gameloft, via a company release. “Thanks to CocoaChina/Chukong, we will bring our successful franchises to even more fans.”

Through these partnerships and its own development studios, CocoaChina has set out to become an even bigger player on the worldwide stage. The company’s plans for its own social gaming platform fall in line with moves made by DeNA with Mobage and GREE’s global platform.

In addition to this mobile platform and the localization of American games for Chinese players, CocoaChina also has plans to publish third-party Chinese games in the US.

Profits from CocoChina’s own games will help quicken the company’s growth, as its popular Fishing Joy series generates more than $6 million a month worldwide.
