If this isn’t the single greatest name an MMO has ever had, we’re not sure what would beat it. “Fantasy Condor Heroes” beats ultra-bland names like Rift and Everquest any day. The new MMO is a cartoonish martial arts-themed MMO based on the martial arts novel Return of the Condor Heroes. So…what’s a Condor Hero?
That’s certainly at the top of our list of questions we’re hoping Perfect World will answer for us as their marketing campaign kicks up. What we do know is that it doesn’t involve being a fantasy condor. Which, honestly, is a bit of a let down.

Cryptic’s parent company, Chinese online game developer Perfect World, has reported a rise in profits for the quarter of 587.7 million CNY ($92.1 million), which is up from 486.9 million CNY the prior year. The firm also reported an increase in revenues of 708.9 million CNY ($112 million), up from 579.2 million CNY yoy. All figures were in line with company guidance, reports Gamasutra. “While focusing on further enhancing the content of our portfolio is necessary for our healthy long-term growth, this decision did slow our revenues for the third quarter on a sequential basis. But our third quarter results still represent solid year-over-year revenue growth of 22.4%,” said according to chairman and CEO Michael Chi.
