Justin Lodge, Chief Marketing Officer at Superdry comments: 

“We know that many of our best-selling items, like hoodies and loungewear, are the perfect attire for a night of gaming but we were curious to delve into the data to find out the games and streamers that video game fans can’t get enough of at the moment. It came as no real surprise that Fortnite was the outright favourite, but the range of Twitch streamers was fascinating to see – with top channels being based across the globe. We hope the research might inspire those who haven’t caught the gaming bug yet to check out some of the world’s best streamers, or even set up a channel of their own.”

Infinity Kingdom, YOOZOO Games’ self-developed cartoon-style strategy mobile game, will start its open beta in Japan on January 25th, available for download on Android and iOS.

Set on the legendary continent of Norheim, players have to defend against invasion from the evil gnomes. While expanding their own cities, players must team up and protect their territories from other players.

Inspired by famous historical figures, the concept of Immortals is introduced in Infinity Kingdom. As commanders of the troops, Immortals have special skills and can be leveled up to increase their power.

After its initial launch in January, 2021, Infinity Kingdom was listed among the top 10 best-selling strategy game in more than 30 countries in Europe and the US. Now the game will be available in Japan soon, bringing OB event, new version update and new Immortal!

 

OB Event: Revival of Cities

The kingdom is suffering, it’s time to protect the people. Together with Japanese lords, unite as one to rebuild the kingdom.

With Infinity Kingdom‘s launch in Japan, a new event, Revival of Cities will be online in the OB server, Norheim Server 136. During this 60-day event, players need to collaborate and conquer. From gems, philosopher stones, to superior resources pack, the top 100 players will earn in-game goodies to the value of hundreds of US dollars.

 

Legion of Frostborne 1.8 Update

As the next round of Legion of Frostborne was about to enter its war phase, another update arrived amidst the ice and snow on January 13th.

The update has brought the official start of the Season system, applying to all servers. As each server progresses through the seasons, the maximum level of buildings, Immortals, troops and dragons increase, and new Academy Technology and Lord Talent branches are unlocked.

New Alliance tactics are available in the regular season of Legion of Frostborne, and can be used by Alliance Leader (R6) or Officers (R5) to provide all Alliance members with protection on the battlefield.

An “Illusion Battlefield” special topic is added to the Daily Talks to gather and disseminate the latest competition news, allowing players to learn and discuss strategies with each other.

SuperGaming, one of India’s leading game development companies announced its mobile multiplayer shooter MaskGun has crossed 60 million players. January also marks the game’s third anniversary.

To celebrate this, MaskGun gets a new update known as the 3rd Anniversary Update. It brings a revamped user interface, fresh skins, and hotly-requested 1v1 mode. It’s out now via the App and Play Store.

“The MaskGun anniversary update is our biggest one yet,” says Roby John, CEO and co-founder. “1v1 in particular has been the most requested feature from the community. It aims to be a test of true skill to show off the best talent from MaskGun’s 60 million plus players as there won’t be a team to make up for your lapses or carry you in a match.”

As the name suggests, 1v1 pits one player against another in a no-holds barred contest to see who is the best. Select from three weapon types — assault rifle, shotgun, and sniper rifle and square off against your friend (or enemy) and settle rivalries once and for all. You can check out what to expect from 1v1 in this handy trailer:

Beat your rivals consistently and you could find yourself a spot on MaskGun’s leaderboard and win unique in-game rewards too. You can access the mode from the Rumble section of the game’s menu.
