Tokyo, Japan – December 24, 2014 –  Worker Bee Inc. (hereafter “WKB”) announced today that they have begun providing the app “R-TYPE” of Dotemu, an independent game studio located in Paris, France to the “Apps CHOU HODAI”, a monthly subscription based service operated by SOURCENEXT Corporation (Headquarters: Toranomon 33 Mori Building 6F, 3-8-21, Toranomon, Minato-ku Tokyo; CEO and President: Noriyuki Matsuda).

In Japan, for MVNO smartphones, no subscription-based app downloading services such as “au Smart Pass” by KDDI, “App Pass” by SoftBank and “SugoToku” by DoCoMo were available; however, with the launch of “Apps CHOU HODAI”, the MVNO smartphone users can enjoy such service.

WKB, by providing contents to “Apps CHOU HODAI”, can now have an access to MVNO Android users which have been increasing in Japan and future growth is expected.
