NIKITA ONLINE Celebrates the Second Anniversary of Russian Asda Story

31 st of May 2012, Moscow — Seoul. — The Russian version of Asda Story was launched two years ago under the title Fantazium.

In May 2010 NIKITA ONLINE published MMORPG Fantazium by Korean devstudio MaxOn Soft on its entertainment web-portal GameXP ( http://gc.gamexp.ru/).

Along with Russia, CIS and the Baltic states the game was published in Japan, North America, Brazil, Taiwan and in other countries. In South Korea its developers were honored with the official governmental reward. 

Fantazium ( http://www.fantazium.ru) is a free-to-play role-playing game which action takes place in the vast fictional world full of phantasmagoric monsters, picturesque locations and vivid colors. The game’s visuals are affected by anime-style though considerably westernized. Another remarkable feature of Fantazium is the Soulmate system making it much easier for users to socialize and to search for new allies and friends in a virtual environment.  

“Being a bright and positive game Fantazium perfectly adds to our project portfolio in which more hardcore titles are predominant,” states NIKITA ONLINE Corporate Communications Director Sergey Kolesov. “By now Fantasium gained a lot of fans and I would like to congratulate them on the game’s second anniversary!”  

MaxOn Soft CEO In-Kyoung Shin speaks on the festive date: “We’re glad to celebrate Fantazium’s anniversary because we love to create the games which brings a pure joy to the users. I would like to express my gratitude to our Russian partner NIKITA ONLINE for their professional work. My congratulations to the users of Fantazium! I wish your life experience both in-game and real world would always be joyful and diverse!”
