Hertfordshire – UK, 1st February 05 – KOEI Ltd, recognised worldwide as a publisher of strategy and action games today announced the launch of a dedicated fansite http://www.tacticalrpg.com.
To fully support the launch of KOEI's forthcoming release Phantom Brave (launch date 04/02/05), the fansite has been live since mid-January. The reasoning for the site development is to assist and encourage the existing community who were fans of the highly acclaimed predecessor Disgaea and to give them a forum to express their thoughts on these highly acclaimed RPG titles.
With under a week to go until the launch of Phantom Brave, Steve Marks, Marketing and PR Manager for KOEI Ltd commented:
"Tacticalrpg.com has been a great project to be involved with. Working on Disgaea last May, has helped us understand our customer for this type of product. These are the people that love to talk about how many times they have levelled up and how deeply involved they are within the game. Giving each other advice on tactics and skills within the game is par for the course and this website gives them all a home to meet each other.
"With bundles of artwork from the game, hints, tips and chances to win merchandise and copies of the game it has everything that a fan of tactical RPG games could want"
Launching on February 4th, Phantom Brave has already been highly acclaimed by the specialist press, with high 80% and 90% review scores across the board.
