We’ve heard often about Zapak Digital Entertainment, the online gaming company from the Reliance ADA Group, planning to launch a China site; the doors to China may have been opened a little after Zapaks deal with Shanda (NSDQ: SNDA) for content (for the MMOG Crazy Kart) got significant media coverage internationally. Now the Financial Express reports that Zapak’s interests lie beyond China – in the four growth economies of the world called the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries. Zapak is in talks for a JV for local language portals in Brazil, China and Russia. No local language games for India?
