MOJO, stylized as M.O.J.O., is an Android-based video game microconsole manufactured by Mad Catz.[2]

The system runs unmodified Android and connects directly to the Google Play online store.[3] As such, it can play any game designed or previously purchased for Android instead of those specifically designed for the console.[3] The console was released on December 10, 2013 in the United States and United Kingdom.[4][5]

Development[edit]

The console was announced as "Project Mojo" in a Mad Catz's June 6, 2013 investor release.[2] The company revealed the system and its new name, MOJO, at E3 2013.[3] Mad Catz CEO Darren Richardson described the console as the "keystone product" in their GameSmart initiative,[2] a series of mobile gaming accessories for smartphones that can work with a variety of devices and platforms with Bluetooth.[6] The announcement stressed hardware performance and an open platform.[7]
