LOS ANGELES, CA- January 17, 2014- Leading mobile games publisher and developer GAMEVIL has today announced the release of its latest title,  Akasha, on Google Play today. The free-to-play game is an exciting new action MORPG, from the creative minds that brought classics such as Immortal Dusk and Legend of Master 3.

Akasha is a 2D, 8-directional MORPG with full network system capabilities and in-depth content. Featuring 3 retro classes - Fighter, Archer, and Mage, players are able to experience dynamic action gameplay while enjoying the nostalgic feel of the classic MORPG. Through the game’s party-matching system, players can play with friends and enjoy a raiding experience on mobile.

To celebrate the game’s global launch, GAMEVIL has initiated an opening event. Gamers who play before January 26th will receive a Beginner Support Pack and 2 limited edition 'Akashas’ which are in-game crystals that provide passive stats and bonuses.

Akasha is a third party title developed by KnetP and published by GAMEVIL through its global expansion funds. GAMEVIL and KnetP have shown exemplary synergy between developer and publisher in the past, and Akasha is expected to reignite the passion for grand-scale MORPGs on mobile once again.

“We’re excited to launch  Akasha globally,” stated Kyu Lee, President of GAMEVIL USA. “Our synergy with KnetP has helped expedite the realization of our goals and vision for the game, and we’re sure it will recapture the excitment of MORPG fans around the world."
