Gamers around the world can now explore the fantasy world of Dragon’s Landing with the latest mobile game Dragon Blaze from Gamevil.

Dragon Blaze was originally released in Korea on the Kakao Talk messaging platform in February 2014 and has been downloaded five million times and is among the top ten grossing apps there.

The game was earlier released in Southeast Asia as part of its soft launch on April 29, and has been transalated into Bahasa Malaysia, Simplified Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and many more.

Gamevil is also famous for its games such as the Zenonia series - Plants War and Cartoon Wars.

Gamevil Southeast Asia managing director Joerg Tente said that at its peak, Dragon Blaze generated US$5mil (RM18mil) per month in South Korea and he believes that the game will be successful in the region.

Tente said that at the end of 2014, the gaming industry in Southeast Asia has already generated more than US$1bil (RM3.6bil).

According to Tente, the Malaysian market is still in its infancy when it comes to mobile games compared to South Korea, China and Japan.

However, he believes that the Southeast Asia market growth is going to double until 2017, and there is enormous growth potential in this region and Malaysia is set to be the second largest just behind Singapore.
