Sidekick VR, the leading cross-platform mobile VR game publisher, announced a partnership with DeNA West for exclusive worldwide publishing rights for Protocol Zero, the immersive first person action game originally released for Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus.
Sidekick VR will continue support and create updates to Protocol Zero, including the addition of multiple touchpad controls and functionality for the Gear VR gamepad. Additionally, Sidekick VR will develop Protocol Zero for other mobile VR platforms, including Google Cardboard compatible VR headsets.
“DeNA’s Protocol Zero is one of the most immersive first person shooters in mobile VR today,” said Guy Bendov, CEO of Sidekick VR. “We are thrilled to be in partnership with DeNA to further expand Protocol Zero and to bring this premium experience to fans engaged on other mobile VR platforms.”
"Our goal was to partner with a best-in-class mobile VR game publisher to expand Protocol Zero’s reach,” said Jennie Sue, Sr. Business Development Manager, DeNA West. “Sidekick VR’s commitment to creating engaging content and their expertise within the cross-platform mobile VR marketplace makes them a perfect fit for continued publishing and expansion of Protocol Zero.”
In Protocol Zero, players take on the role of a lone operative in a war-torn city tasked with covertly infiltrating enemy territories to overthrow the brutal regime. Night, X-ray and thermal vision allows players to take the perspective of the secret operative where they must remain hidden from sight, scanning dark rooms and taking down enemy targets with silent precision. Protocol Zero is a thrilling Virtual Reality mobile gameplay experience with maximized spatial interaction and stunning 3D graphics.
Protocol Zero will be available worldwide this summer on Google Cardboard compatible VR headsets, for both Android and iOS devices.
