AERIA MOBILE’S HIT FREE-TO-PLAY MONSTER PARADISE DEBUTS ON ANDROID

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Aug. 29, 2012 – Paradise has been found for Android owners today with the launch of Monster Paradise from Aeria Mobile, a subsidiary of leading free-to-play publisher Aeria Games. The publisher’s successful first entry into the mobile market can now be enjoyed by the wide audience of Android owners, who will join and interact with the growing community of iOS players.

                                               

The anime-styled Collectible Card Game (CCG) developed by Japan’s Pokelabo, Inc. turned heads when it launched on iOS in June, achieving several major milestones. Monster Paradise reached the number one spot for RPGs on iPhone in the US and six other countries, as well as reaching the top five in RPGs in a total of 29 countries. The game has now seen over 350,000 installs since launching.

“Launching Monster Paradise on Android has been a very important goal for us to expand our terrific community, and we’re looking forward to Android users enjoying the great game that so many iOS users have been playing,” said Colin McKee, General Manager of Aeria Mobile. “ Monster Paradise has been an exceptional first title for us in the mobile market, and we look forward to its continued success as well as our upcoming titles.”

Monster Paradise features over 500 monsters to capture and collect while exploring dozens of areas across a large, colorful world. Players assume the role of a monster trainer, and can team up with other trainers to battle the threat of the invading Dark Monsters. Captured monsters can be fused together to increase their strength, and sometimes even evolve into completely new forms.

Monster Paradise is now available as a free download for select Android phones via Google Play. The list of supported devices includes: Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S; HTC Evo 4G LTE, Desire C, Droid Incredible 2 and Thunderbolt; Motorola Razr and Droid X2.
