2. Bounty Hounds Online is a MMO made by Taiwanese studio XPEC, but we don't have too many Sci-fi MMOs from Asia here in American market. So does BHO feature eastern Sci-fi, or blend with the western style?

Bounty Hounds Online has a style that is well blended for East and West. It brings a number of aspects that are popular in the West, as well as the popular Eastern themes that Westerners like. It is a very unique setting and presentation. We would say it has taken the best from both eastern and western Sci-fi. There are not many Sci-fi games in the American market from the Asian market so it is very exciting for us to bring a game such as Bounty Hounds Online to the gaming community.

3. The game is based on the 2006 PSP title Bounty Hounds, and many fans want to know the similarities and difference between the original PSP game and the MMO version. So can you tell us something about that?

Some characters will make a cameo appearance in the game as well as some locations that were in the PSP title will also be in the game. Put it this way, the fans of the PSP version will be ecstatic by the MMO version of the game. We will leave it to the fans to check out the similarities and difference when they have their first hand experience with the game.

4. Personally, which part of BHO impresses you most?

We believe the game's CTU system (Robotic Pets) is actually one of the most impressive features of the game. Being able to build and raise your pet up, as well as disassemble other pets and use the parts to build up pets can lead to some deep connections between players and their pet. Reminds me of Pokemon and Digimon in many ways. Also, the graphics in BHO are superb. Compared to other games, we believe the free-to-play gaming community will be shocked at the high quality of graphics in the game. Imagine the graphics on a pay-to-play game implemented on to a free-to-play game. It will be very exciting to see the game when it is launched!
