New Korean MMO hits it big in Japan

Japanese beta testers apparently swarmed to a visually stunning Korean MMO-in-development, Grenado Espada. Gamespot believes this bodes well for PC MMO development in the Asian market.

Hanbit Ubiquitous Entertainment (HUE) appears to have a smash hit on its hands with its new massively multiplayer online role-playing game, Granado Espada. HUE, the Japanese arm of Korean publisher Hanbit Soft, acquired 100,000 users in just seven hours of beta testing last week, according to Web site MyCom PC.
