Three New Licensees Sign Up for Subway Surfers

Ink, global representative for app property Subway Surfers, has announced that the first licensing deals have been struck for the brand, with agreements signed across apparel, nightwear, and arcade games.

Subway Surfers is the 3-D platform game that puts the player in the role of young graffiti artists as they evade the attention of a railway security guard and his dog, while dodging oncoming trains and other hazards and picking up coins and useful objects. The game launched last year. Subway Surfers has recorded 160 million downloads, with an average of 26.5 million people playing every day. Subway Surfers is the No. 2 highest-grossing arcade game for iPhone in the U.S., Russia, France, and Brazil; it is No. 3 in the UK and Australia; and in the top 5 in Germany, Italy, and Canada.

The new licensing deals are with Isaac Morris for junior apparel (U.S. and Canada), AME for junior nightwear (U.S.), and Coastal Amusements for coin-operated arcade games (worldwide).

The success of Subway Surfers is being driven by a global team of sub-agents, with Firefly Brand Management on board in the U.S., License Connection in Benelux, Segal Licensing in Canada, and Active Merchandising in Germany. Ink represents the brand across Nordics, Eastern Europe, and Russia, and talks are currently underway with agents in Oceania, Asia, South America, and India.
