CDC Games continues its international expansion by moving into Japan's online gaming market with the closed beta testing of Gemfighter.
The company handles a number of licensed properties throughout Southeast Asia, Taiwan and China, including Eve Online, Mir III and Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar.
"We are very excited to launch our first online game in Japan," commented Jeffrey Longoria, president of CDC Games International.
"Along with our recent launch of our US operations, our plans to offer five new games for southeast Asia and Taiwan and our strong games pipeline, we are positioning ourselves to become one of the leading global online games companies with a broad and diversified international games portfolio."
Gemfighter will be known as Minna de Battle in Japan. It already has over 1.5 million users in Korea, with the Japanese launch expected before the end of the year.
