It's game on at the Justice X Wars II

The battle lines have been drawn for the second annual Justice X Wars II (JXII) team challenge, with a prize pool of 25 million riels (US$6,108) up for grabs.

The games will be held at the ICT & Telecom World Expo 2009 at NagaWorld from April 3-5. The winning eight-player team will take home half the prize money, and other teams that qualify will also take a portion of the pot.

JXII is a multi-player online role-playing game launched last year by Sabay, the country's leading internet portal.

Teams qualified over four days in March, with 16 teams going on to the grand final. Sabay Marketing Manager Chan Borith said more than 1,000 players took part, with more than 60,000 players registered for the game nationwide.

The leader of team Perfect Net, who referred to himself by his hero name, Kimura_Takuya, said he expected stiff competition. "We only expect to come third or fourth because there are many good teams participating in this competition."

In the game, players complete tasks to develop their characters, or heroes, while battling hordes of demons.
