Asiasoft Online TO LAUNCH AIKASEA IN 2011!

8 December 2010, Singapore– AIKASEA is a 3D Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) that focuses on the Player vs. Player (PvP) element and is set in the enchanting land of Arcan, where the Goddess AIKA led the Humans into war in order to restore peace to the land of Arcan.

AIKA Online has won many awards at the 2009 Korean Game Awards where it bagged the Best of Show: Prime Minister award, Player's Choice: Best Online Game award and Best Game Design&Scenario award.

This MMORPG stands out because of the astounding war modes that it has within the game. One of which is the Nation War, where players engage in glorious 1000 versus 1000 battles to bring top glory to their respective nation. They are also able to raid treasures from their enemies to prove their superiority.

Another main attraction of the game is the beautiful and adorable Princess of Air Nymph (PRAN). This pixie-like character is the must have companion for every player. The player will have to interact with the PRAN to mould her personality as she grows and evolves. Other than being a great travelling buddy as the player explores Arcan, she is also a personal cheerleader and can aid the player during battles by enhancing with additional buffs. She can also be dolled up with pretty costumes and accessories to match her unique personality.

Asiasoft Online Pte Ltd (Asiasoft) is pleased to be the official publisher for the localised version of the game, AIKASEA in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia.  It is slated for an official launch in early 2011.

A sneak peek of AIKASEA will be held at the upcoming Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention at Suntec City Convention Centre halls 401 and 402. Players can have the chance to interact with a real life PRAN, who will be at the booth for photo opportunities. However, there is small challenge that the players need to complete in order to get up close with her for a photo, and they will have to visit the booth to find out the details.

"We are very excited about the upcoming launch of the much awaited AIKASEA in 2011 to the fans in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia." said Mr Sherman Tan, Chairman of Asiasoft Online. "Being the first game to herald in the new year, gamers can expect more exciting events and activities to keep them entertained throughout.
