We can confirm Bilibili has secured publishing rights to a mobile version in China. As you can imagine, we’ve had a lot of questions about platforms since launch, and of course, we’d love to release on more platforms in the future but for now, we’re focusing our efforts on PC and PS4.
Respectable Analyst at Niko Partners and a specialist in the video games market in China & Asia reported the deal of Bilibili, a company that is a video sharing website but has also entered the video games industry as a publisher. Bilibili also has acquired several esports teams.

On Bilibili’s website, they affirm to be the “exclusive agent” for a mobile game inChina that its official translation is “Jelly Bean: Ultimate Knockout,” with “jelly bean” alluding to the game’s bean-shaped characters. In China, the PC and PS4 versions of the Fall Guys go by the same name.
Last week videos of a supposedly port of Fall Guys on iOS and Android was debunked by Mediatonic, what those users were displaying is not the mobile version of the game, a release for mobile devices outside China is not in the talks right now.
“If you see any ads for a mobile version, they are scams,” … “They’re literally playing a video and pretending to play it. There’s literally a mouse cursor on the screen.” At the moment of writing, Fall Guys is only available on PC and PS4.
