The Kairosoft iPhone Release Crystal Ball

By Owen Faraday 16 Apr 2012 0

It is a painfully slow news day in the world of mobile strategy gaming this Monday so why don't we take advantage of the relative quiet to engage in some random speculation? Kairosoft are known for their much-loved simulation games, but not known for having chatty PR people. In the absence of official announcements, we have the Pocket Tactics Crystal Ball.

It used to be that Kairosoft's games were released for iOS before showing up on Android devices - but that hasn't been the case with their last 3 releases, as the handy chart below will demonstrate.


TitleAndroid Release DateiPhone Release DateGap from Android to iOS
Game Dev Story11 Dec 20109 Oct 2010-63 days
Hot Springs Story28 Apr 201127 Feb 2011-60 days
Mega Mall Story30 Dec 201128 Aug 2011-144 days

Pocket League Story7 Sept 20114 Jan 2012119 days
Epic Astro Story16 Dec 20116 Apr 2012112 days
Dungeon Village2 March 2012??
Cafeteria Nipponica5 April 2012??

Average Android to iOS gap: 103 days

So now that we've determined the average gap between an Android release and an iOS, when can you expect to be playing Dungeon Village and Cafeteria Nipponica on your iPhone or iPad?

TitleAndroid Release DateProjected iPhone Release Date
Dungeon Village2 March 201213 June 2012
Cafeteria Nipponica5 April 201217 July 2012

So there you have it: a complete guess from the Official Pocket Tactics Kairosoft iPhone Release Crystal Ball™ based on no official information at all from Kairosoft. I'll followup in the summer with insufferable gloating when I turn out to be right.
