GetJar promised that at least three days this week we would see some big named, full version games coming to Android via GetJar and sure enough today’s announcement is a fairly big one. Zynga’s Mafia Wars for Android is now available exclusively on GetJar. I’m pretty sure I don’t need to go into detail as to what Mafia Wars is.
David Ko is the SVP of Mobile over at Zynga and was on stage at LeWed talking about the future of mobile gaming and Zynga. Mentioning that Mafia Wars is coming to Android is one thing, mentioning it would be available this month though is another. With Poker by Zynga already on the Android Market, Mafia Wars looks to bring more Zynga to gamers.
Social Gaming Network, or SGN for short, just recently announced that they have raised an additional $2 million dollars in second round funding. While good funding is great to hear about where developers are concerned, SGN has been focused a long time on high quality iPhone/iPad/iPod multiplayer gaming. They now plan to release titles for Android devices.
