NetDragon Websoft Inc., one of the leading online game developers and operators in China, together with The Walt Disney Company's Interactive Media Group today announced their first Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) "Disney Fantasy Online" will be launched in Spring 2009. This fun and dynamic game is set to be the most highly anticipated game for the season.

Gamers of "Disney Fantasy Online" are immersed in a uniquely Disney-themed central world, created based on themes of magic, adventure and romance with non-playing Disney character hosts such as Mickey and Friends, preparing and training the gamers for the vast adventures that lie ahead. As gamers explore, complete quests, and level-up, they have the opportunity to acquire virtual items to personalize the gaming experience and enable them to explore additional worlds more extensively. Expansion packs with new adventures and maps will be constantly added to the game, providing endless opportunities for gamers to uncover new content and secrets.

"Disney is committed to providing gamers in China with the ultimate digital entertainment destination. Our characters and stories endure across generations, platforms and now immersive online experiences," said Mr. Stanley Cheung, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Walt Disney Greater China. "We are very pleased to be cooperating with NetDragon, to create a unique, fun, and brand-new entertainment experience for gamers".

Key game features include:
-- Gamers will explore vast fantastic lands, and can show off their skills
in turn-based battle mode
-- Fully customizable player avatars, premium accessories, and other in-
game items
-- Players will be able to "raise" Disney-themed companions or "Pets"
throughout the game. Companions can be won, purchased, and/or
discovered and will have various attributes that enhance the gaming
experience. Companions are expected to be nurtured and will grow and
mature through game play
-- Players can build their virtual castles within the game world, which
will act as the player's virtual personal space. These virtual castles
can be upgraded, assembled, traded, and shared
-- Leveling-up, team-play, raising companions, and building virtual
castles provide endless gameplay and community activities

NetDragon, renowned for its leadership in online gaming development and operating experience, is responsible for developing "Disney Fantasy Online". The Game consists of many virtual worlds based on some of Disney's most famous stories, providing an exciting environment for endless adventure.

Mr. Liu Luyuan, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of NetDragon said, "We have 9 years of rich experience in online game development, and operations in multiple international markets. Creating and sharing great entertainment experiences are common objectives of NetDragon and Disney. I'm very excited about being able to work with Disney's rich content to develop this exciting game".

"We assigned the best creative and production teams to this project and the end result is the creation of a totally unique gaming experience around unique stories that will delight gamers," said Mr. Liu Luyuan.

Wow. So they finally realized their mistake and brought back VMK. It's about time.
Professionals admit to the problem. Alcoholics claim they have no problem.

The return of VMK... No thanks. :D

People who played VMK would probably rather just have it brought back, and those who didn't will not be likely to find any value in this. It's almost as if they failed twice.
