Perfect World, a leading online game developer and operator in China, has announced that it plans to release a new 2D turn-based cartoon MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) “Fantasy Zhu Xian” in the current year.
“Fantasy Zhu Xian” is Perfect World’s first 2D turn-based cartoon MMORPG, which is run on the company’s proprietary EPARCH engine. The game is based on an internet fantasy novel “Zhu Xian.” Players will be ushered into the unknown world of “Zhu Xian” to unravel a series of mysteries.
It will also feature a number of new characters, which will interact with the original characters of “Zhu Xian” to generate new stories. The game, says the company, will also be the first online game to adopt its proprietary engine EPARCH, which targets the market for 2D online games. This engine will allow the company to introduce features such as reflections and flying in a 2D game.
