Bilibili secures right to publish Fall Guys mobile in China
The Fall Guys mobile version has been in talks since its launch, as the gaming community has wanted it to release on Xbox and smartphones.
It now looks like the Chinese company Bilibili has struck a deal with Mediatonic to bring the original Fall Guys game to mobiles. However, it will exclusively be made available to players from mainland China.
Industry analyst Daniel Ahmed confirmed the mobile version of Fall Guys in a tweet, which was followed by a few screenshots of the game. The title is known as Jelly Bean: Ultimate Knockout in China, as the characters look like Jelly Beans. The mobile version will also have the same name.

"We can confirm that Bilibili have secured publishing rights to a mobile version in China. As you can imagine, we've had a lot of questions about platforms since launch, and of course we'd love to release on more platforms in the future but for now we're focusing our efforts on PC and PS4."
Interestingly, we already have a few rip-off versions of Fall Guys on mobiles. There is no official confirmation on when the game will launch on the mobile platform. However, the developers intend to release the game on smartphones and the Xbox soon.Published 24 Aug 2020, 20:53 IST
