Six Million-Strong ijji.com Game Portal to Host Renowned MMORPG
NHN USA, a leading free-to-play online interactive entertainment publisher, today announced that they have acquired the rights to Lunia, a unique, anime-influenced action massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). Lunia is now available to play on NHN USA’s renowned gaming portal ijji.com.
Lunia differs from most MMORPGs available today with an extremely detailed combo system of action controls for movement and attacks that users control via their keyboard, rather than being restrained by the non-adaptable “click/command” style. In addition, users can create custom movements and attack skills to personalize their controls. The game has highly advanced player vs. player elements, enabling users to compete against each other to become the best PvP player in both ongoing rankings and periodic tournaments. Users can also join forces with friends and fellow players to attack monsters and raid bosses in force.
“Lunia has an extremely strong community of dedicated gamers and we are thrilled to have them join ijji.com’s existing six million users,” said Philip Yun, CEO, NHN USA. “The game’s unique action controls enable players to conduct intense gaming sessions, and help set the game apart from some of the more traditional MMORPG’s that require players to endure hours-long marathon sessions. Online gamers everywhere are sure to love Lunia’s thrilling mix of customizable attack moves and anime-based story elements.”
Developed by leading Korean digital media company Allm Co.,Ltd., Lunia revolves around a detailed plot and storyline comprising various episodes, meaning new content is always appearing. The game has a very unique anime-influenced feel, with cell shaded animation in the style of Japanese Manga comics. Players battle monsters and each other over the course of multiple, increasingly difficult episodes of the overall plot. They often have to accomplish specific missions in order to advance to the next level.
Originally launched by CDC Games, current Lunia players are invited to migrate their characters over to ijji.com from now until January 2009. All items, skills and levels will transfer over during this period. Previous qualifying in-game cash purchases will also be converted to NHN’s G Coins, ijji.com’s in-game currency. In addition, current and future players can acquire in-game wealth by creating a shop and selling goods to other players.
