Thumbstar Signs the BAFTA Award Winning 'New Star Soccer' for Android Devices

Liverpool, UK – 28TH OCTOBER 2013 - Thumbstar Games is excited to announce the addition of 'New Star Soccer' to its portfolio of games.

Thumbstar Games will handle the publishing and distribution of New Star Soccer world wide on all Android devices.

With a huge update just in on iOS devices, and the switch to free to play on Android coming, the game that is already a massive hit is poised to repeat that success and go beyond.

New Star Soccer has had more than 3 million downloads to date, and held the number 1 grossing position in the Sports Category on the AppStore for more than 12 weeks.

Thumbstar plans to publish the game worldwide on Google Play and Amazon Stores, and also reach a much wider audience through its global distribution network of over 200 operators and D2C channels, particularly across the rapidly expanding markets of Asia and Latin America.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Simon Read on this brilliant game and look forward to taking it to new heights ! The story behind New Star Soccer is inspring and we feel very privileged to be involved in the next chapter” said Gareth Edmondson, CEO at Thumbstar.

“I'm really looking forward to working with Thumbstar and can't wait to see what that can do for New Star Soccer on Android. I’m sure this is the start of a fantastic relationship!” added Simon Read, creator of New Star Soccer, and founder of New Star Games.

The Free to Play Android version will be available early November.
