(Beijing, 09/02/2021) It was officially announced today that GAEA has entered into cooperation with the SEGA Corporation, and will be distributing the Fist of the North Star: LEGENDS ReVIVE mobile game (hereon referred to as LEGENDS ReVIVE) to Korean and Chinese mainland markets.
The Fist of the North Star manga was first published in the renowned weekly manga anthology Shonen Jump from 1983-1988. Authored by Buronson and illustrated by Tetsuo Hara, it has released to date 27 volumes with a combined sales figure of over 100 million copies. Fist of the North Star is truly a popular classic.
Under supervision of author Tetsuo Hara, original artwork from the acclaimed series was redrawn for LEGENDS ReVIVE, and countless famous scenes from the series have even been rendered into the mobile game in full-color CG. Unlike a lot of other games adapted from manga, LEGENDS ReVIVE presents an unprecedented recreation of the original story that starts from the very beginning. Apart from loyal fans, newcomers to the series are also sure to have a blast in this game adaptation that faithfully embodies all the charm of the original manga. A whole host of memorable characters, from Ken to Shin and the unforgettably-voiced Heart among many others, can all be found in-game.
Since its Japanese, English and Traditional Chinese launch in September 2019, it's received a glowing reception from players. As of today it's reached 140 different countries and regions, and in Japan achieved the Number 1 spot in both the App Store and Google Play.
The purpose of this cooperation between GAEA and SEGA is to bring together SEGA's massively popular, globally-reaching IP content with GAEA's superior distribution capabilities; a win-win for both parties. We at GAEA believe that LEGENDS ReVIVE's excellent performance in foreign markets will be seen also in its Korean and Chinese mainland release, bringing players there a rich and exciting gaming experience.
