Publisher, Electronic Arts and Chinese Developer, NetDragon Websoft have joined hands to resuscitate the PC strategy series Dungeon Keeper.
They will bring it back to life as an MMO but only confirmed it for the "Greater China region." They didn't provide a release date.
The game was initially developed by Bullfrog in 1997, the concept placing the player at the role of the dungeon keeper. Rather than playing the hero by seizing the dungeon, the player builds it, sets traps and wards off enemies.
This new licensing deal allows Netdragon to come up with "themes, characters and other game content."
Since the MMO is for ""Greater China region," perhaps this version will have references that are culturally appropriate and familiar to the Chinese--Mongol invaders, dragon slayers, gods and goddesses from Chinese mythology.
Do you think this game will translate well in China?
