Fall Guys Mobile Is Happening In China
A mobile port for Fall Guys is in high demand, and it's finally becoming a reality for at least one market.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout was an instant hit even before it officially launched on PC and PS4, so it's no surprise that a mobile version is in high demand among fans and potential fans. As revealed by industry analyst Daniel Ahmad on Twitter, Fall Guys has now officially been licensed by Chinese company Bilibili for the purpose of releasing a mobile version in China.

While searching for "Fall Guys" on Google Play or iOS App Store will bring up plenty of results, none of these are the official game, as pointed out by the official Fall Guys Twitter account. As with most popular releases, there are plenty of scams going around that are claiming to be a mobile version of the hit game.
The Bilibili license is legit, though there aren't currently any details on timing or a release plan for the mobile port. The Chinese version of the game will be known as Jelly Bean: The Ultimate Knockout according to a Bilibili webpage accessed by Esports Observer, which is no longer accessible.
Bilibili's companies have published other popular mobile games for the Chinese market, including Fate/Grand Order. Fall Guys developer Mediatonic confirmed to Esports Observer that a mobile version was in the works, but could provide no details on the port or what markets it would be coming to. Demand for a Fall Guys Xbox port is also high among fans. While the developers have stated they'd "love to bring the game to other platforms further down the line," there's no word on a concrete plan or release window for Fall Guys on any additional platforms just yet.
