Legend of Mir is considered as a legendary series in South Korea and China, and Chinese games publisher Shanda got its big start with the game many years ago. The PC MMORPG is still churning insane cash despite its dated graphics. Developed and owned by Korean studio WeMade Entertainment, the 2 companies are actually in a legal tussle over the IP rights for Legend of Mir in China. It is a really lucrative IP worth hundreds of millions!
The legal case did not stop WeMade Entertainment from showing up at ChinaJoy 2016, almost equivalent to giving Shanda the 2 middle fingers. Simply named “Legend of Mir”, this mobile game is crafted using Unreal Engine 4, with the part of the game text already translated into Chinese. There is no word who the publisher is, but I am willing to bet Shanda would be the last name on the list. Stay tuned for more updates on the game!
