As one of the iconic games in the Chinese game community, Legend has been popular in China for nearly 20 years, with more than 600 million registered users. The game series itself was a pioneer when it was first released and achieved great success based on the concept of playing for free. Formed as part of the continuous evolution of Legend, the National Legend Industry Alliance, which instantly became one of the most authoritative voices for the game series, is expected to help create an ecosystem that expands the game business to include a number of new cultural elements, including games, books, television programs and films, greatly promoting and building the game series as a cultural brand.
90 per cent of the 108 publishers of the Legend series of games have joined the Alliance, which will now represent every member's rights and interests. These game publishers are looking forward to the Alliance solving various issues related to the game series and to developing a new original brand around the series by creating a united portfolio of Legend series games.
Supported by Yichun's city government as well as the city's Municipal Party Committee, the press conference was attended by top government leaders from both Yiyang New District and Yichun in addition to representatives from the business community.
