Japanese mobile giant DeNA will be laying off an undisclosed number of staff at its Singapore office, Tech in Asia has reported

Although it didn't confirm how many employees would be let go, the company did reveal that some will lose their jobs, while others will be transferred to DeNA's Vietnam office in Hanoi. 

Tomoyuki Akiyama, DeNA’s global public relations representative, confirmed the layoffs, explaining they are being made to ensure DeNA's Southeast Asian operations remain "structured in the best possible way."

"We have decided to reshape the structure of our Southeast Asian operations and integrate part of our Singapore office’s capabilities into our Hanoi office, along with a reduction in workforce in Singapore," said Akiyama.

"The office will be reorganized in a phased manner but we plan to continue our operations in Singapore next year."

This isn't the first round of layoffs at DeNA this year, with the company also reducing its U.S. workforce back in April, just after its partnership with Nintendo was announced.
