Konami公司新作Viva! Mall 1月14日正式发布
继Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Challenge之后，最近知名社交游戏开发公司Konami即将发布其首款原创社交游戏Viva! Mall。对此，Konami公司总裁Shinji Hirano表示，此前Frogger和Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Challenge等游戏的发布为Konami积累一定的Facebook玩家群体。本次即将发布的Viva! Mall是Konami公司的首款功能全面的Facebook游戏。未来Konami也将再接再厉发布更多的高品质Facebook游戏。
Slaying demons with a whip and weaving through rush hour traffic? Mere child’s play. Esteemed developer Konami has already broken into Facebook with games like Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Challenge, but its newest game, Viva! Mall, marks a milestone for the company. This will be the first original (and complete) social game developed by Konami.
“With the release of Frogger and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Challenge already gaining traction among the Facebook community, we felt like we were ready to make another contribution to the social networking site with the release of Viva! Mall,” Konami president Shinji Hirano says. “This title is our first major attempt in bringing a full featured Facebook game to market and consumers can expect to hear more announcements on our next Facebook game soon.”
Set to release Jan. 14, Viva! Mall will put players in the role of running their own shopping center. Mall owners will take care of every responsibility from cleaning it to maintaining inventory. In other words, Viva! Mall is expected to play a lot like games such as CityVille and FarmVille. Said by Konami to give players a glimpse of what it’s like to run a real mall, players will be able to hire friends to manage stores. The developer also promises weekly content updates as well as gifting and daily lottery bonuses. Expect more details when our checks clear the game is released this Friday. （Source：games.com）
