THQ kicks off their joint venture with Chinese online game operator ICE with Dragonica Online, with a new website and new screens filled with near-fatal cuteness.
First announced in September of last year, Dragonica Online is to be the first game released on the THQ*ICE online gaming platform. Originally released in China as Dream Dragon, Dragonica Online is a fast-paced, free-to-play, 3D side-scrolling action game, with sickeningly cute graphics and a humorously deadly skill system.
"Our new online game platform integrates ICE's online operating experience with THQ's product development and retail publishing expertise to develop and deliver innovative game content to consumers," said Eddie Chen, CEO of THQ*ICE. "Dragonica Online exemplifies the original and entertaining casual MMO experiences that we plan to offer via our platform and we believe its distinct perspective and pacing will excite a broad audience of online action fans."
It's adorable, but then most massively multiplayer online games out of China are. The proof is in the pudding, so to speak, and players interested in dipping their fingers in said pudding can sign up at the website to get in line for beta testing, which kicks off this summer.
