AirConsole, a gaming platform for cars, has secured a strategic investment from KPIT Technologies, which is based in the Indian city of Pune, according to a press release. KPIT develops software for the automotive and mobility ecosystem. Its European headquarters are located in Munich. The AirConsole gaming platform is owned by Zurich startup N-Dream, which was established in 2015.

The press release explains that KPIT’s equity stake in N-Dream will enable the company to expand its team and make it possible for AirConsole to add well-known game brands to its portfolio of games.
