But in 2005, the game Online was first officially launched in the country and it went viral. the online player count reached an unprecedented peak of 170K people in a matter of months. At that time, JXQY acquired 70% of the entire Vietnam online game market.
The great performance in Vietnam led to Seasun Entertainment creating the series’ first mobile remaster. The Vietnamese version of Jian Xia Qing Yuan R was launched in April 2021, and it immediately hit the top no.1 rankings in the regional app Store. Despite the years gone by, players still found passion in the good old days of high-flying duels that the game offered them.
