Popular Anime MMO arrives later this year.
Asda Story is a popular Anime-based MMO in Korea and Japan. San Fransisco based Gamescampus.com will be behind the North American translation.
San Jose, Calif. (June 24, 2008) - San Jose-based online game publisher, Gamescampus.com (www.gamescampus.com, run by OnNet USA), announced a publishing deal with MaxOn Soft Corporation to launch its newest game, Asda Story, in the U.S. market. The game will launch later this fall.
"We are very pleased to announce our new partnership with MaxOn Soft which allows us to bring this wonderful product to the U.S. market,"
said David Chang, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Gamescampus.com. "Asda Story has already built a successful following in Korea and Japan. It is an exciting and innovative 3D MMORPG, and we have every confidence it will be a major success in the U.S."
Based on a colorful, bright and cheerful world, Asda Story is a free to play exciting fantasy-style anime 3D MMORPG game that features a unique 'Soul Mate System.' The unique party system offers two players the ability to align to become 'soul mates' and allows them to wear unique costumes and use special skills. Another key feature of the game is the 'Real Costume System,' which gives players some of the most extensive personalization and design options ever seen in an MMORPG.
Both unique systems ('Soul Mate System' and 'Real Costume System') were credited for helping to generate a high female user ratio for Asda Story (more than 20% of the total players are female) when launched in Korea and Japan. With these systems, players are able to personalize the design of their items and make the look of their characters stand out. Gamescampus.com is expecting to see similar ratios with females for the launch of Asda Story in the United States.
In addition to the unique systems, Asda Story contains several key features that also make it stand apart from other MMORPG's:
- Various interwoven community systems lead to a great degree of player interaction that increase in complexity and number from Soulmate to Party to Clan to Camp.
- Unique Sowel items make costume play possible and allow for maximum customization and playability of items and armor
- Huge amount of game content with unique whimsical graphical style that includes instanced dungeons, vast maps and an incredible number of different armor sets and weapons.
"We look forward to building upon Asda Story's popularity in Korea and Japan, to deliver a successful launch in the United States," said Jenny Shin, CEO of MaxOn Soft Corporation. "We are extremely pleased to have Gamescampus.com as our partner in establishing Asda Story as a leading MMORPG with North American gamers."
