Closed Beta 2 in 13th June 2013 and Open Beta in Early July 2013
Malaysia, 12 June, 2013 - IAHGames, a leading Southeast Asia online games operator and distributor headquartered in Singapore, is entering the Malaysian online game market with a bang! The operator, which is already in the 7th year of online game operation, is ready to embark on the next game launch, following the formation of a Malaysian-based operations team.
Following the successful launch of New Gulong Online, the team in IAHGames Malaysia is in preparation to launch New PAL Online, which is a 3D Web-based MMORPG based on the Chinese PAL series from Softstar Entertainment in Taiwan. Licensed and fully developed by Dream Square, a renowned game developer based in Shanghai, China, New PAL Online has won almost all of the Most Anticipated Game awards in the Chinese game community since its debut.
The game has by far been the most costly in terms of time and resources than most of the web-based games. He added “Usually, a browser-based game can be completed within one year or even half a year. But New PAL Online cost us 4 years and 50 million RMB. We suffered countless hardships in the development. To avoid devaluing the Chinese Paladin series, we have been polishing New PAL Online and postponed its debut time and again.”
Dream Square has also engaged popular musician, Mr. Kaoru Wada, to compose the music found within New PAL Online. Mr. Kaoru Wada is famous for his works in InuYasha, Record of Lodoss War, Saint Seiya and Kindaichi Case Files. As a multi-talented musician, his musical works have graced popular Anime cartoons and games.
