Venturebeat reports today that EA has purchased Unicorn Parade shop Ohai. Terms of the deal were not divulged, but the report states Ohai was sold for a "relatively low price." Kabam, Tencent, Perfect World, and Aeria Games also reportedly bid on the studio.

Ohai was founded by Susan Wu in 2008, and it's now run by CEO Rex Ishibashi. The studio is located in San Francisco, California, and builds browser-based social games.

As of press time, EA had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment on the purported acquisition of Ohai.
