SEOUL, Dec. 20 (Korea Bizwire) – NCsoft Corp., a South Korean online gamemaker, said Wednesday the mobile version of its mega-hit game Lineage, ranked the No. 1 mobile application in terms of sales in Taiwan.
Lineage M has become the most popular app both in the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store in Taiwan, since its launch on Dec. 11, the company said.
The new Lineage M features a very high degree of visual resolution, yet brings back the classic Lineage game by featuring role-playing scenes. Players can create a character by choosing from a variety of classes and titles, and can set up a team with other players and slay monstrous opponents in various environments.
The company said the number of preregistrations for the game in the Asian nation has surpassed a record-high of 6.3 million since launching preorders for the mobile role-playing game on the official website Oct. 10.
The company said it will also launch the game in Japan sometime early next year.
