The company was tapped to serve as North American licensing agent for the game which is developed by Super Creative and published by Smilegate Megaport. Under the new deal, Surge is looking to develop a full consumer products licensing program spanning toys, tabletop games, publishing, and digital products, including NFTs.
“E7 is an adventure unlike anything seen on mobile, with anime-inspired production values that rival television and film production quality,” says Elan Freedman, executive vice president, Surge Licensing. “With a loyal and engaged fanbase of hundreds of thousands in the U.S. alone, we’ll be able to leverage the games plethora of characters and rich backgrounds to create a robust licensing and merchandising program to further engage players with the brand as it continues to build its user base on a global scale.”
E7 launched in 2018 and has amassed a player base spanning the 18-34 demographic. The game, which is available on iOS and Android, was named a Top 10 RPG Game of 2020 by the Apple App Store.
