IP E-Game Ventures gets rights for MMORPG

TOKYO — Online game developer Gonzo Rosso, a member of the GDH media group, has inked a license deal for its first original title, “Pandora Saga,” GDH announced on Thursday.

 IP E-Game Ventures has taken Filipino rights for massive multiplayer, online role-playing game, developed by Tokyo-based Headlock and published by Gonzo Rosso. The game, online in Japan since February, pits three nations against each other in a battle for military supremacy.    

 IP E-Games is the online game operations subsid of IPVG, a Filipino IT company. Among its titles is “Ran Online,” which was developed in South Korea and is the most popular online game in the Philippines.

 Gonzo Rosso and IP E-Games plan to use the deal to open more Asian territories to the title. “Pandora Saga” will launch in the Philippines this summer.
