We, the entire management team, will make a wholehearted effort to provide a wider range of services so that more and more customers can enjoy “Livly Island”.
This international release is the first step in the ” global expansion ” that “Livly Island” has been aiming for since its initial release in Japan.
We will continue to focus on further global expansion so that we can bring the mysterious pet “Livly” to more and more people around the world.

About Cocone Corporation
Cocone provides a number of social network-based digital content, including “Pokecolo,” a character dress-up application for smartphones supported by more than 20 million customers, “Pokecolo Twin,” a sister application to “Pokecolo,” and “Livly Island,” which was released in July 2021 and has become a huge hit.
Digital contents based on social networks provided by Cocone are mainly “social services to enjoy coordinating” and “games with coordinating elements ” which have “Character” and “Coordinating” elements and customers can “Play”. At Cocone, we have pioneered this genre, which we define as “CCP(Character Coordinating Play)”.
In 2021, we will globally release “Cobalt,” an NFT marketplace based on blockchain technology that allows many creators and buyers to participate, guaranteeing the value of popular digital items and contributing to further economic expansion in the online world in the future. In addition, based on the existing CCP service, we are challenging to build a digital world and metaverse space that can give shape to “sensibility”, which is Cocone’s forte, rather than convenience and functionality.
As part of the Cocone Group, in April 2017, we opened “International Montessori Mirai Kindergarten ” a preschool operated by our subsidiary Cocone Education Corporation, which provides a future-oriented education with bilingualism, Montessori, and computer science at its core, In 2019, we acquired “Hange”,a long-established online gaming portal as a subsidiary.
Established in 2021, Cocone Connect Corporation is developing the “noen konkatsu(Marriage Hunting in the Farm)” series and the popular avatar service “Selfy” for further development of CCP services, and Cocone Fashion Corporation operates the EC service “choiceis,” which is oriented toward a new way of selling fashion as an IT company.
We aim to build a new digital world by combining our experience in avatar development, community management, and language education with technologies such as blockchain and NFT.
