Trion Worlds and DMM Games release the popular MMO voxel game in Japan on PlayStation 4
Redwood City, CA – May 23, 2018 – Trion Worlds is proud to announce that Trove, its hit voxel MMO game, has released in Japan. Published in the country by DMM Games, Trove is available now on PlayStation 4 digitally and at retail stores.
Trion Worlds has brought a great number of major expansions and updates to life in Trove. Earlier this month, Trion Worlds announced Trove – Geode, a major free expansion for the game due this summer, which will take players to a whole new world with a winding network of caves to discover, all-new story elements, and a ton of new companions and characters to meet. The Japanese version of Trove will be updated on the same schedule as other regions, so players in Japan can expect regular updates and exciting content at launch and beyond.
Prior to releasing in Japan, Trove launched in China in late 2017 to great success, with the expansion into the region pushing it past the 17 million player mark, with that number poised only to grow as the game releases to Japanese audiences. By expanding its infrastructure to Japan and bringing Trove to the region, Trion Worlds is continues to execute its vision to become the worldwide leader in go-to publishing and operations platform of choice for online games.
“We’re blown away that Trove has become a global phenomenon the way it has,” said Scott Hartsman, CEO of Trion Worlds. “The game’s blend of depth, accessibility, and personality have made it a hit in several regions, and we’re tremendously proud to bring it to Japanese players.”
Digitally, Trove in Japan is free to play, with a microtransaction model. Additionally, the game will be available at retail on disc. Exclusive to Japan, the retail version of Trove contains the free to play game on disc as well as a code for the Shiny Treasures Pack, which bundles the Super Start Pack and the Square Necessities pack with 750 Credits.
