Kongregate announced today that it is taking over operations of three Disney mobile games: Maleficent Free Fall, Inside Out: Thought Bubbles, and Where’s My Water? 2.

According to Kongregate, the three free-to-play games have combined for over 224 million downloads. Kongregate will continue to develop new content, including in-game events, to keep each title relevant.

Each game will be fully integrated into Kongregate’s infrastructure by “early 2021.” The studio is promising a seamless switch for players.

Taking over existing games is not an unusual practice for Kongregate. Last year, it acquired the top-down battle royale game and the dungeon crawler RPG Bit Heroes.
