Zynga, the makers of Farmville, Frontierville, and ZyngaPoker have announced that Mafia Wars will be coming to Android this month. Mafia Wars has been a very popular game on Facebook (21 million users) and was the winner of the 2009 Webby Award for gaming. It looks like Zynga as finally decided that Android is too big to ignore! David Ko, the SVP of Mobile at Zynga has stated that mobile social gaming is “The next great frontier” and it looks like they mean to deliver on this statement.
The game allows you to start your life of crime as a small-timer and claw your way to the top of the family though drive-bys, thefts and other underworld activities. As you work your way up in rank you get to travel the world to Cuba, Russia, Bangkok, and of course Italy. The game allows you to recruit your friends into your family which makes your character stronger. So this news should make many Mafia addicts happy and I’m sure this means that Farmville can’t be far behind.
