SG Interactive, a publisher of high-quality online games, today announced that the 1st Annual Pangya World Championship will be held on Jan. 22, 2011 at Akiba Square in Tokyo, Japan.

At the end of the contest, three winners will be selected and each awarded a unique Kooh figurine. All entries must be submitted by 5PM PST on Jan. 18 to be considered valid. Put those thinking caps on and enter for your chance to win this one-of-a-kind prize.

Also, available immediately for fans to purchase in-game are the new PWC Club set, which includes Power +8/Slot +6, Control +7/Slot +5, and additional stats, as well as PWC Comets Onyx and Pearl. These items are only available for a limited time, so don’t miss out!
