AERIA MOBILE STIRS UP MONSTER COLLECTING FEVER WITH MAGIMON

SANTA CLARA, Calif.  – Nov. 20, 2012 – Get a dose of monster magic right in the palm of your hand! Aeria Mobile, a subsidiary of leading free-to-play publisher Aeria Games, has announced the launch of Magimon, a sprawling card collecting game (CCG) available now on iOS devices. In its first three days on the iTunes store, Magimon has already racked up over 100,000 installs.

Magimon is set in a post-apocalyptic world populated by hundreds of anime-style monsters. Players will embark on a journey across 10 unique areas as they further the cause of a faction of their choice: the Advocates, who fight for the freedom and equality of Magimon; or the Sentinels, humans who want to use them to harness a power that can restore the world.

Magimon offers a fresh take on monsters by populating the game’s fantastical world with artificially created critters instead of monsters naturally occurring in the wild. Using materials that they collect on their journey, players will craft additional Magimon in special cauldrons – and even forge them into entirely new species. Players then take their monsters out on missions in the ravaged world and strengthen them through battle, or engage other players anywhere in the world in PvP combat.

Magimon is a deep, full-featured card battling game that defies expectations with a unique setting and story,” said Colin McKee, General Manager, Aeria Mobile. “The hundreds of monsters and missions, with even more on the way, will keep our players entertained for a long time to come.”

Magimon is available as a free download for iOS devices on the iTunes store.
