Amsterdam, 03 March 2023 – Azerion announces the release of L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. Fashion House™, developed in collaboration with long-standing partner MGA Entertainment (MGA), bringing the popular franchise to mobile gaming and into multi-channel distribution. The video game, available for Android and iOS, creates a new experience for the brand’s popular L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G.™ fashion doll collection.
“The success of the partnership between Azerion and MGA underscores the advantage of our franchising approach,” said Azerion SVP Erol Erturk. “As a media-entertainment company, Azerion has built an outsized presence in digital games, metaverse, and as an advertising platform. Our partnership with MGA showcases the many possibilities for brands to engage with consumers in an organic way. This partnership also demonstrates the opportunities of in-game advertising and branding, capturing the attention of millions of actively engaged audiences and coupling it with a successful TV show to increase cross-marketing strategies.”
“From its start just about seven years ago, the L.O.L. Surprise! brand has been a global sensation. Continuing to extend the brand experience for fans remains important for its continued growth,” said Mindy Puente-Escalera, SVP, Global Licensing, MGA Entertainment. “Our partnership with Azerion helps us to engage with consumers in the mobile gaming space and bring L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. to new and existing consumers where they are.”
Following on the 2022 success of the L.O.L. Surprise! Winter Fashion Show movie on Netflix, MGA looked to Azerion to bring the L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. fashion dolls into the world of gaming and to further build the brand through multi-channel digital distribution. In addition, Azerion partnered with Magic Star, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, to use the music from the L.O.L. Surprise! Winter Fashion Show movie in upcoming L.O.L. Surprise!™ game promotions. A version of the game for HTML5 will be available later this year through Azerion’s digital game portals.
In the L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. Fashion House game, players along with their favorite fashionistas Neonlicious, Lady Diva, Swag, Royal Bee, and the other L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. girls from the movie and YouTube series decorate the fashionistas’ Fashion House, complete challenges to level up their avatars, and collect fashion dolls.
In 2023, Azerion will bring L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. fan favorites into the metaverse by releasing core-branded items in one of Azerion’s virtual worlds in Woozworld. Players in this fashion-centric game can collect and dress up in the character-inspired outfits and hairstyles.
