Funimation Entertainment announced on Thursday that the company's president and CEO Gen Fukunaga has been named Chairman of the Board of Directors for the online video game developer and publisher GameSamba. Fukunaga will be the first to take on the role at GameSamba.
Funimation and GameSamba had revealed in July that the two companies formed a "promotional partnership to cross promote their online game and anime titles to each other's audiences." Funimation featured GameSamba games at all of its events this summer, including San Diego Comic Con.
GameSamba's works include the massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) Remnant Knights and Realms Online, and the real-time strategy game Tribal Trouble 2. The company is based in Washington and has offices in North America and Taiwan.
