Poke Labo, which provides Samurai Senki or Yakyu Tomo on Moba-ge-town, raised $12 million (1 billion Yen) from US based venture capital firm, DCM and Incubate Fund founded by DeNA, Moba-ge-town operator. DCM and Incubate Fund invests half amount respectively. This is the first investment for Incubate Fund.
As a startup founded in 2007 November, 1 billion yen is relatively a large scale. The company may be the first startup focusing on social game to raise such a large scale of capital.
