About the WorldNeverland Series

Since the release of the first title in the series (“Olerud Kingdom Stories”) in Japan in 1997, the hit series has gone on to sell over 500,000 total units on home consoles. Elnea Kingdom is both the latest title in the series and the first to be localized and released in English.

A completely simulated society populated with unique citizens is brought to life thanks to a proprietary system patented in Japan that simulates a virtual game world, allowing players to enjoy a life in the kingdom to call their own. Players grow old with the other citizens in the game and eventually succumb to old age, but all is not lost! The game continues as players assume control of one of their children as a new player character, creating an endless gaming experience spanning multiple generations.
