Cocone debuts AlterEgo City as 1st foray into U.S. gaming


Cocone debuted AlterEgo City as its first foray into the U.S. gaming market. The mobile game is available on iOS and Android as a digital playground for art, fashion, and music.

Japan-based Cocone started in Japan with its digital fashion focus, and it has seen more than 140 million downloads and 17 billion digital items sold.

AlterEgo City, formerly known as Centennial and AlterEgo City, invites players to step into the realm of Centennial, a meticulously crafted environment offering lots of customization options. Players can design and personalize their unique digital avatars, from collecting designer digital fashion items to decorating their virtual living spaces within the city.

One of the game’s highlights is the ability for players to select their own unique companion, an Alter Ego, which can evolve into various forms based on in-game choices. AlterEgo City goes beyond typical gaming experiences by allowing players to produce their own music, creating custom tracks that resonate through their AlterEgo. The extensive customization features extend to sharing these creations with friends online, fostering a dynamic and user-driven social environment.
