LOS ANGELES, July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --MOBIA ENTERTAINMENT, formed in June 2015, is a new mobile company focused on building state-of-the-art applications and games. The new venture is backed by strategic investors, including partner Firefly Games and Sky Ocean International Holdings.
The first application Mobia Entertainment will launch this fall is League Chat, a definitive social e-sports application for the League of Legends community. The mobile app includes live video streaming for the League of Legends 2015 LCS (League Championship Series), mobile text messaging, and community generated content.

Future versions will include the development of instant replay sharing, curated league of legends content and other innovative social e-sports features.
