HONG KONG, June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Catheon Gaming ("the Company"), the fastest-growing integrated blockchain 
gaming & entertainment company, announced today, the launch of Cosmic 
Break(http://cosmicbreak.io/) on to the blockchain, the second gaming title 
under Catheon Gaming and CyberStep's partnership, following the launch of 
Onigiri.

Cosmic Break, an anime-style 3D MMO third-person shooter, is a Free-to-Play MMO 
Battle Shooting Game where players can enjoy large-scale Player Versus Player 
battles, and also cooperate with friends to defeat bosses in Player Versus 
Environment modes. Released in 2008, Cosmic Break features high-speed and 
exhilarating battle gameplay, gaining many core fans as a long-lasting PC 
online game title with over 12 years of service and a total of over 4 million 
players.

Catheon Gaming is bringing its deep expertise and network to support blockchain 
integration, game economics, and Web3 transitioning to assist CyberStep in 
creating new products and services that will amplify digital fandom around the 
franchise and game. Not only this, the partnership between both will help drive 
existing users to the Cosmic blockchain, allowing for seamless interaction and 
engagement with the game.

The global anime market size was valued at USD $24.80 billion in 2021 and is 
expected to reach USD $26.89 billion in 2022.[1] With a revenue of more than 
USD $19 billion in Japan, anime is experiencing an unprecedented rise in 
popularity overseas, with a contributing role to its record sales. Both Catheon 
Gaming and CyberStep recognize the unprecedented rise in popularity overseas 
and the industry's long-term appeal.

The growth in global popularity is fueled by the availability of anime content 
on streaming platforms such as Netflix, in emerging entertainment markets, and 
in core P2E gaming markets. Half of Netflix's 222 million worldwide subscribers 
watched "some" anime on the platform in 2021, and the time spent watching anime 
increased by 20% globally according to Netflix anime head Kohei 
Obara.(https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/business-news/netflix-anime-ko

William Wu, CEO, Catheon Gaming commented: "The popularity of anime has been 
rising significantly in recent years. Anime has been big in Japan for over 
seven or eight decades, but in recent years, its popularity has been growing 
internationally. Catheon Gaming is delighted to be partnering with CyberStep to 
capitalize on this trend and put a spotlight on anime in the form of blockchain 
gaming. Our fundamental core principle is entertainment first, and we will 
continue to build a gaming ecosystem around this".

Rui Sato, President & CEO, CyberStep said: "Since its inception, CyberStep has 
established a solid foundation for its services in North America, Asia, and 
Japan by eagerly expanding overseas. CyberStep was one of the first game 
developers to publish Free to Play games in Asia and has served over 60 million 
users worldwide. Our mission is to develop and deliver entertainment through 
innovation and we are very excited to enter the blockchain gaming market with 
Catheon Gaming. We hope that everyone will enjoy our brand new anime-based 
blockchain game."
