New Zealand-based studio Ninja Kiwi has acquired Scottish mobile game developer Digital Goldfish for an undisclosed amount, the studio revealed today.

The two teams had previously worked together on the popular iOS series Bloons, but will now publish future titles under the Ninja Kiwi label.

In conjunction with the acquisition, Ninja Kiwi also announced that the next entry in the franchise, Bloons TD 5, will be coming to Apple devices in November.

Digital Goldfish co-founder Barry Petrie expressed excitement over the deal: “What started as a simple license deal developed into the perfect partnership. We have collaborated on several successful titles together and racked up millions of downloads in the process.

“This deal made absolute sense for both parties and was a natural progressive step in the relationship between the two companies. We are delighted to become part of the Ninja Kiwi family and are excited for the future as we look to bring existing and new Ninja Kiwi IP to a variety of platforms.”
