Indonesian gaming startup studio Touchten has confirmed that it has raised a series B round from CyberAgent Ventures.

At our Startup Asia Jakarta 2013 conference today, we spotted Touchten’s logo printed on CyberAgent Ventures’ booth. When asked about this, Touchten founder Anton Soeharyo confirmed that CyberAgent Ventures is an investor in its latest round. More details about this brand-new funding, including the other investors involved, will be revealed in due course. He declined to reveal who the others investors are.

This new financing round is believed to be for Touchten’s new mobile game publishing platform.
