Developer and publisher Game Power 7 plans to publish what it says is the first 3D MMORPG localized for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Though the company hasn't yet disclosed the title, it intends to reveal the forthcoming game in the fourth quarter of 2008. Based in Dubai, UAE, Game Power 7 is a subsidiary of Weiss Investment, a media business focusing on tailoring media contents for the MENA and Southeast Asia regions. The game development and publishing startup intends to release games appealing to "all ages and interests," in addition to publishing gaming-related digital content. Game Power 7 also says it is actively pursuing other MMO games to localize for the MENA region. The studio hopes to position itself as a partner in the area to help online game developers publish their games in Arabic and Farsi languages. The company's announcement follows THQ's June release of Wall-E -- a video game adaptation of the Disney-Pixar film for the Playstation 3, PSP, and Xbox 360 -- in Arabic. The game was said to be the first "next generation video game" localized for the Middle East market.
