- AIKA Online scheduled to launch services in the first half of this year via "Redbana"

- Receives calls from not only Taiwan but also many countries such as China and Europe

- Confident of success in the Taiwanese market considering the strengths of AIKA

Enjoying continued popularity while seeking to represent large-scale war (1,000 vs. 1,000), "AIKA Online" ( http://aika.hanbiton.com; "AIKA") sets its sights on the global market starting with Taiwan.

Hanbit Soft (CEO: Kim Gi-yeong) announced that it has signed a local service contract in Taiwan for AIKA with the local Taiwanese branch of T3 Entertainment, "Redbana" ( http://www.redbana.tw; CEO: Yun Bong-jin). AIKA's service in Taiwan is scheduled to be launched in the first half of this year.

"We have taken our first step in targeting the global market of AIKA with Taiwan. AIKA's large-scale war presents an exceptional experience unlike any other. Because of this, we strongly believe it will be successful not only in Taiwan but also in other countries as well," said Hanbit Soft CEO Kim Gi-yeong. He notes how many countries including China and Europe are showing interest in AIKA even now and looks forward to good results in the near future.

"We have high expectations for AIKA since there are many MMORPG games out there with war as its main theme and are already successful in Taiwan. We are confident that AIKA will succeed in the Taiwanese market since it features a huge war unlike any other games launched to date, a solid system, and a client optimized for the local environment," said Redbana CEO Yun Bong-jin.

AIKA, which was in open service in the country for over a month, has been performing updates every week following its open service and concentrating on game balance and optimization.
