Chinese government approval process successfully negotiated.
Tokyo, Japan – August 6, 2008 – Gala Inc. today announced that Chinese publisher CDC Games Limited has received approval from the Chinese government to publish Street Gears, an online game developed by nFlavor Corp., a consolidated subsidiary of Gala Inc.
1. Overview of Street Gears
Street Gears is a massively multiplayer online inline skating racing game. The game offers exhilarating races in which you need to use every trick in your arsenal to prevail against your friends and enemies, but that's not all; building your character by choosing skills from a skill tree and obtaining gear, trading with other players, and tackling the many quests are among the wide variety of activities offered.
2. Operation in China
In China, there is a government-mandated screening process for imported online games. While this allows for the introduction of high-quality online games from around the world, it also means that games which do not fit Chinese culture or have inappropriate content are severely restricted.
Street Gears has now passed this screening, and will go into open beta testing in October.
3. Future Efforts
The Gala Group will continue to strive to expand its online businesses in order to provide superior games to users around the world.
