The newest arm of the group behind the Tropico city-building simulation series is dedicated to mobile entertainment.

Kalypso Media Mobile opens in Hamburg, Germany, giving global independent developer Kalypso Media Group an avenue into the $25 billion dollar mobile games market. Marcus Behrens, formerly of a senior manager at German developer Bigpoint Games, will head up this new division as its publishing director.

The last expansion for the group added a digital-first division named Kobalt Games back in 2013.

This new business will focus solely on bringing Kalypso’s own brands and IPs to smartphones and tablets on both the iOS and Android platforms.

No new titles have been announced as of yet, but it’s probably safe to bet on at least one city sim.
