Zynga Soft-Launches Mafia Wars For Mobile

Zynga, the name behind many successful social media games, seems to be keen on re-releasing one of its most popular titles, Mafia Wars. The news is that they've soft launched a version of the game as a mobile app in Indonesia on March 30th 2017. However, there has been no word on whether they will release it anywhere else for now.

Mafia Wars was a huge success when it was released in 2008. The game involved playing as a gangster boss who has to build up your own mafia team and complete various tasks in order to gain points. It was a Facebook game, but one version of it did end up becoming a game for iPhones. However, all versions of Mafia Wars were shut down in 2016, much to the dismay of fans.

Here's how the iPhone version looked like. It was released in 2009, so this video is rather 'ancient'.

Now however, there seems to be a light on the horizon. Hopefully Zynga will find a way to update and upgrade the game to make it marketable to new generations of players, and it will make its way back for the sake of fans new and old.

Just so you know, Mafia Wars isn't the only games Zynga produces. They're also well known for Farmville, Crazy Kitchen and Words With Friends.
