GamesCampus.com Publishing Information:
On June 24th 2008 Max On Soft announced a U.S. market publishing deal with Gamescampus.com run by OnNet USA. At the time of the announcement, localization and testing was still taking place in an "alpha" testing phase. When the beta moves into closed status anyone requesting entrance will be accepted. No word has been heard on whether players from the gamengame open beta will receive their characters or accounts back.
''Based on a colorful, bright and cheerful world, Asda Story is a free to play exciting fantasy-style anime 3D MMORPG game that features a unique 'Soul Mate System.' The unique party system offers two players the ability to align to become 'soul mates' and allows them to wear unique costumes and use special skills. Another key feature of the game is the 'Real Costume System,' which gives players some of the most extensive personalization and design options ever seen in an MMORPG.
Both unique systems ('Soul Mate System' and 'Real Costume System') were credited for helping to generate a high female user ratio for Asda Story (more than 20% of the total players are female) when launched in Korea and Japan. With these systems, players are able to personalize the design of their items and make the look of their characters stand out. Gamescampus.com is expecting to see similar ratios with females for the launch of Asda Story in the United States.
In addition to the unique systems, Asda Story contains several key features that also make it stand apart from other MMORPG's:
- Various interwoven community systems lead to a great degree of player interaction that increase in complexity and number from Soulmate to Party to Clan to Camp.
- Unique Sowel items make costume play possible and allow for maximum customization and playability of items and armor.
- Huge amount of game content with unique whimsical graphical style that includes instanced dungeons, vast maps and an incredible number of different armor sets and weapons.''
Game & Game Publishing Information: Sweet 3D MMORPG Asda Story will start its Open Beta on December 6th, 2007. Based on a colorful, bright, and cheerful world, it is an easy game where monsters with powerful individualities. Lots of female users would be treated awesome and can have great tastes of this comfortable game easily.
Asda Story is very appealing to female users because of unique Soulmate System. We had lots of female users in CBT, and all of them are coming back to play OBT of Asda Story. Among Soulmates, healing, summoning, resurrecting, sharing attack or defense points were most popular. No girls over level 10 were playing alone. This is very casual game to satisfy both sexes.
In Asda Story, one of the greatest characteristics is Costume Fashion Show. This is the very first system ever in MMORPG. Korean and Japanese female users were very satisfied with this system where 40% of gamers were occupied with females. Users can have their own sets of armories with special characteristics. We don't like TWINS. Weapons and armors are considered just decorations that their real purpose will be served with Sowels. It's only possible in Asda Story to arrange your own weapons and armors with special abilities. It all depends on different Sowels with different skills providing armories to be very strong in defensive and offensive.
Huge difference from CBT was developed by MaxOn Soft Corp. There are Specified Skills for all of the characters, Collecting Unique Optional Item Sets, New 5 Maps with New Goals, Enchanting all Armories and Sowels, Faster Transportation, and Digging. For Open Beta Test, we arranged data to specify ones characteristics among different jobs. There will be no changes in the base settings, but in long term, we adjusted to bring up characters potential skills 100%. Items with options were added that users can find many different sets of unique items with purposes. For example, there will be healers costume set which will provide extra healing points to increase healing. Users can collect them and use them when needed.

Casual users can be satisfied from constructing special and great skill trees or hard core users can be satisfied from expanding limitless item slots to create their own characters with various skills.
