Ngmoco's parent, Japanese headquartered mobile social game network and developer DeNA, announced today that it has signed a number of big game developers to produce titles for its mobile social network Mobage.

During a press conference today in Japan, and as translated by Andriasang, the company revealed five producers who will be developing games for the service as part of the Super Creators project.

Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, who left Capcom late last year, will be producing an action game called J.J. Rockets, as part of his new company Comcept.

Suda 51 of Grasshopper Manufacture is set to release a game based off the No More Heroes franchise. Former Sonic Team head Yuji Naka will be making an adventure game with his studio Prope.

Yoshifumi Hashimoto of Marvelous Entertainment will be making a Harvest Moon title that will use real weather and seasonal information in-game. Finally, Crafts & Meister's Noritaka Funamizu is working on Nama-ge, although there are no details on what exactly this will be.

All five of the games will be published by AQ Interactive, with Suda 51 and Hashimoto's games set to be released this winter.
