BEIJING, March 13 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Perfect World Co., Ltd.

("C&C Media"), a famous online game operator in Japan.

C&C Media has many years of online game operating experience. C&C Media successfully operates "Perfect World II," ("Perfect World" in Japan) the Company's first 3D MMORPG licensed to overseas markets, in Japan. Perfect World signed a licensing agreement for "Legend of Martial Arts" with C&C Media in the end of June, 2007, and both parties have devoted great efforts in localization. On December 14, 2007, the closed beta testing was launched and was greatly welcomed by Japan's online game players.

"During the first week of operating 'Dream World - Legend of Martial Arts' in Japan, we have seen that it was very well received by Japan's online game player community and we are satisfied with the result so far," commented Mr. Kensuke Chikaishi, President and Chief Executive Officer of C&C Media. "'Dream World - Legend of Martial Arts' is the second 3D MMORPG we have licensed from Perfect World. Since the successful launch of "Perfect World" in Japan, we have been building a close and good relationship with Perfect World, which is the main factor accounting for the successful localization of 'Dream World - Legend of Martial Arts.' Since the official launch, we have seen positive feedback and we are confident in the operation of 'Dream World - Legend of Martial Arts' in Japan."

"After the successful launch of 'Legend of Martial Arts' in Taiwan, I am pleased to see that it has also been successfully launched in Japan, the first time in Non-Chinese speaking region," commented Mr. Michael Chi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "As a popular light hearted 3D MMORPG in China, 'Legend of Martial Arts' has been well received by many players since its launch. The name, 'Dream World - Legend of Martial Arts' in Japan, portrays Perfect World's vision of promoting its self-developed MMORPGs to the world. Through closer cooperation, I believe that 'Legend of Martial Arts' will create a successful track record in Japan's market."
