Line’s new ‘Neko Copter’ game is the top iPhone app in Thailand


This week Japan’s Line Corporation released a new game in cooperation with Square Enix. It’s called Neko Copter, and like most of Line’s mobile games it’s a pretty casual with easy-to-use controls and social integration with Line’s chat app.

We’ve seen many of Line’s games rocket to the top of the app ranking charts here in Japan upon their release. But what’s interesting about the first few days of Neko Copter is that it has first reached the top of the charts in Thailand, while in Japan it is still only in 69th spot overall.

This is a strong indication that the Line chat app platform is working well as a game distribution channel in Thailand too, where the company has already racked up more than 15 million downloads.

If you’d like to get a closer look at the gameplay for Neco Copter you can check out our quick video demo above. If you want to try it for yourself, you can get it over App Store or on Google Play.

This is not Line’s first collaboration with Square Enix, as the two companies previously worked together on Slime Shot which was released late last month.
