Mobile game studio Traplight is launching its Battle Legion mobile strategy game worldwide and announcing a $9 million funding round led by EQT Ventures.
Battle Legion combines strategy with an auto-battler core in something the company calls an auto mass-battler experience. Players can pick a strategy and watch the game unfold in 100-versus-100 mass battles. Traplight aims to build the next global gaming success story, and with that level of funding, it’s worth taking seriously.
The game comes from Finland, of course — the land of massive mobile game hits like Small Giant Games’ Empires & Puzzles (EQT invested in Small Giant, and Zynga acquired the company for $700 million) and Supercell’s Clash Royale. Tampere, Finland-based Traplight is focused on mid-core games, or hardcore-themed games you can play in a short time.
