Kingdom Conquest Passes 1 Million App Store Downloads Worldwide

SAN FRANCISCO - May 17, 2011

SEGA® of America today announced that Kingdom Conquest™, its first free-to-play MMORPG for iPhone® and iPod touch®, has surpassed 1 million downloads worldwide. After launching in North America and Europe last fall, Kingdom Conquest quickly took the #1 spot in the Free RPG category on the App Store across eight different countries. The game also held the top spot in Free RPG App Store Sales ranking for 93 consecutive days after launching in Japan this past January.

Along with reaching this milestone, Kingdom Conquest also received the 2010“Innovation Award” during the Global Mobile Game Award at the Global Mobile Internet Conference last month in Beijing. The game is currently available in 20 countries, and SEGA plans to expand the game to an even wider audience in the coming months.

Kingdom Conquest offers players a unique blend of competitive, massively multiplayer strategic gameplay with 3D, monster-slaying action. Players must delve the many dungeons and ruins that litter Magna, the Land of Monsters, defeating and capturing the creatures within to build out their army and grow their kingdom. Shrewd players can also acquire Charge Points via in-app purchase that help boost their progress in focused ways, from increased treasury capacity to speedier resource gathering.
