Atlus Online and NHN USA inc. announced a partnership between the two to bring Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent to the online gaming portal hosted by NHN USA, known as ijji.com. This partnership will allow ijji.com’s seven million users to convert the services currency, known as “G Coin” into “Gears” for the purchase of in-game items and boosts for Neo Steam.
“We are thrilled to partner with NHN USA, Inc. to bring the unique fantasy-steampunk MMORPG experience of Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent to ijji.com’s over seven million users worldwide,” stated Jamie Ortiz, Head of Business Operations at Atlus Online. “Since its launch in North America, Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent has steadily expanded its audience by clearly establishing an emphasis on providing the richest, most community-oriented online roleplaying experience possible. Partnering with ijji.com dramatically grows that user base, introducing a new host of gamers to its distinct, eventful MMORPG gameplay.”
Neo Steam is a free-to-play 3D fantasy/steam-punk-styled MMORPG, where a mysterious resource called “Neo Steam” powers everything. This vital powersource is the cause of much strife in the world, which is exactly where the player comes in. Players can choose to side with one of two warring nations, select from five races and four different character classes, and PvP, Realm versus Realm battle, adventure, and bask in the clever steam-punk setting.
“Steampunk is another immersive experience we are thrilled to add to our current line-up of games. Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent offers the ijji community a class-A persistent world to get lost in,” said Calvin Yang, vice president of marketing, NHN USA, which hosts ijji.com. “Atlus provides some of the best games in the business, and that is just what we look for when it comes to our portal.”
