NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of King Digital Plc  (KING) are up 1.85% to $16.49 in pre-market trade as the game developer today released "Bubble Witch Saga 2", the company's first major game launch since the company's dismal stock listing in March, the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Bubble Witch Saga 2" is a sequel to King's first Facebook (FB) and mobile hit that launched in late 2011, becoming the third most-played game on Facebook and propelling the company to become one of the world's leading Facebook and mobile game developers, the Journal said.
