Gamers all over the world will literally have Sony games at the touch of their fingertips, as the popular gaming franchise is set to expand its services to the the mobile market.

The project, which is dubbed as ’ForwardWorks,’ will provide full-fledged game titles for iOS and Android devices which would showcase famed PlayStation characters, as well as its Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)—according to reports from technology website, TechTimes.com.

To fully accommodate their new platform, Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) will also be rebranded to Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) starting next week.

The announcement came months after Sony’s rival, Kyoto-based company Nintendo, released its own version of mobile gaming app called ‘Miitomo’.
