Moetopia Game Portal Site to Launch This Summer
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese game company Success (Cotton, Metal Saga, Rondo of Swords, Touch Detective) posted a teaser page for its "moe-themed" portal site called Moetopia on Tuesday, and it will launch a beta test in early July. The formal launch is slated for some time between late July and early August. Under the site's business model, basic gameplay is free but users can purchase items.
Registered users receive a "cute avatar" with which they can communicate with other moe fans and use blogs, Twitter, and other social networking services. The main contents of the site will be social games and titles now under development at Success.
Blade, the illustrator of Ichiro Sakaki's Magician's Academy light novel series and Konami's Busou Shinki action figure line, created the site's image character. The character will be fully revealed when the beta test starts in early July.
