Hatch and Samsung extend 5G cloud gaming partnership to Europe
New streaming subscription service brings instant, on-demand access to more than 100 premium mobile games for Samsung Galaxy users
Pioneering cloud gaming service Hatch and global smartphone leader Samsung are deepening their partnership to cover major markets in Europe, after first introducing Hatch to Samsung Galaxy users in Korea and America earlier this year.
As part of their cooperation, Hatch Premium is now available for Samsung users through the Galaxy Store in the UK, Germany, Spain and Italy. Hatch and Samsung will also collaborate on special events at Samsung experience retail stores, with casual eSports tournaments on Galaxy devices showcasing the benefits of cloud gaming.
Hatch Premium is a streaming subscription service that includes instant, unlimited access to more than 100 high quality, premium mobile games, including Hatch Originals like Arkanoid Rising and Angry Birds GO! Turbo Edition. The paid service (6.99 EUR/6.99 GBP per month) also unlocks Hatch Kids, where children can play, create and learn online with content from top kids studios like Toca Boca and Dr. Panda, in a safe environment completely free of advertising and in-game purchasing.
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with global market leader Samsung and show Galaxy users what a difference instant, on-demand gaming makes, opening up new ways to discover and play games together in one, easy-to-use service,” says Vesa Jutila, Hatch co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer.
“We are excited to deepen our partnership with Hatch, whose accessible cloud gaming service is a great fit with the latest Galaxy devices built for speed on newly upgraded mobile networks,” says Mark Notton, Director of Product Portfolio at Samsung Mobile Europe.
Games on Hatch are played entirely over the Internet, freeing up space on devices and allowing for instant discovery and play, with no downloads, installations or fuss. Although designed and optimised for ultra low-latency 5G networks, Hatch also works well over Wi-Fi and good 4G connections.
Hatch is the cloud gaming service built for the always on, always connected 5G world, delivering rich, full-featured games to mobile devices and TVs with no downloads, no in-game purchases and no limits. Hatch is available now in Korea, Japan, the US and select European countries. For more information, visit playhatch.com. Hatch is a subsidiary of Rovio Entertainment Corporation.
