GAMEVIL Sits Atop Free Charts in Korea and Japan

LOS ANGELES, CA- September 6, 2013- GAMEVIL has announced that its two newest games are occupying top ranking positions in the Korean and Japanese mobile application markets.

Hero Master for Kakao, developed in-house by GAMEVIL, and Kaizin Rumble, developed by Players, have become hits on Apple's App Store in Korea and Google Play in Japan, respectively.

In just a day after release, Hero Master for Kakao shot up the App Store Top Charts, ranking #1 in Free Apps, Free Games, Strategy Games, and RPG games in Korea.

Kaizin Rumble, on the other hand, took its strides on Google Play, ranking #1 in Top Free Games and becoming the Top New Free Game for Android.

The reason for the two games' popularity in each country was a result of GAMEVIL's strategy. Each game was designed specifically for its region. In Korea, GAMEVIL harmonized the play system with social functions by connecting the game with Kakao. In Japan, GAMEVIL introduced a unique card battler equipped with an unprecedented slot play system.

Through strategic distribution and know-how of various markets, GAMEVIL is poised to continue its status as the global leader in mobile game developing and publishing.
