San Jose, Calif. (September 3, 2008) - San Jose-based online game publisher, Gamescampus.com ( www.gamescampus.com, run by OnNet USA), announced today that is has officially launched Asda Story, its free to play exciting fantasy-style anime 3D MMORPG game. The client is available to download at http://asdastory.gamescampus.com.
Based on a colorful, bright and cheerful world, Asda Story is a free to play exciting fantasy-style anime 3D MMORPG game that features a unique 'Soul Mate System.' The unique party system offers two players the ability to align to become 'soul mates' and allows them to wear unique costumes and use special skills. Another key feature of the game is the 'Real Costume System,' which gives players some of the most extensive personalization and design options ever seen in an MMORPG.
"With the combination of the unique soul system, the colorful, fun and vibrant graphics and the character specialization, Asda Story appeals to a broad range of MMO gamers," said David Chang, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "If you haven't experienced the fun of Asda Story in its beta, we invite you now to give it a chance-we are sure you will be hooked."
Both unique gameplay systems ('Soul Mate System' and 'Real Costume
System') were credited for helping to generate a high female user ratio for Asda Story (more than 20% of the total players are female) when launched in Korea and Japan. With these systems, players are able to personalize the design of their items and make the look of their characters stand out. Gamescampus.com is expecting to see similar ratios with females for the launch of Asda Story in the United States.
With the official launch of the game, the Asda Story item mall is now open. Though players of Asda Story can play the game forever for free if they want to, some players might prefer to visit the game's shop to purchase items. Items now available in the new item mall include:
special hair styles for their newly created characters and Riding items including a swimming tube that makes the players move faster while wearing it. Also now available are Skills Default items like an All Skills reset that initializes all skills, a Max Weight Increase Potion that increases the weight of items that character's can carry and a Character teleporting scroll that allows a player to teleport to a specific character. More items will be added to the item shop regularly throughout the month of September.
In addition to the exciting overall game-play systems, players will find that the character specialization in Asda Story offers a great degree of depth and breadth of skills for each class. Players can choose to create characters that not only possess the powers of a singular class specification, but are able to modify them to their own specialties for truly well-rounded game-play and personal customization. Asda Story's Warriors may be melee fighters at heart, but they are also able to adjust their class build to take on survivability, tanking, dps, and stealth infiltration roles depending on the player's preference. Archers are able to diversify their chosen abilities between crowd control for parties, huge amounts of outright damage, supporting buff roles, and scouting talents at a whim. Mages are no longer confined to the role of straight damage dealers. They are able to experience a variety of skills involving the summoning of demons, protective shielding skills, crowd control abilities, party buffs, and the ever-necessary healing role on top of being able to wreak massive destruction on their enemies.
Players who visit http://asdastory.gamescampus.com now to download the game can also sign up for a great "Hide and Seek" event going on now that is hosted by RPgamer.com. Top prizes include an iPod video and gold that can only be won through this event and cannot be purchased through the item mall!
