CYBIRD: IKEMEN Royal Palace -Midnight Cinderella-, the Most Popular Title in the IKEMEN Series of Dating Simulation Games for Women, Makes Long-Awaited Service Debut in Taiwan and Hong Kong!

CYBIRD Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; President and Chief Executive Officer: Kazumoto Robert Hori) announces that from today, May 8 (Thursday), it is starting to provide a service at App Store* and Google Play in Taiwan and Hong Kong for IKEMEN Royal Palace -Midnignt Cinderella-, which is the most popular title in the IKEMEN Series of dating simulation games for women that has attracted 8 million members.

*At App Store, this service began on May 1 (Thursday).

The game IKEMEN Royal Palace -Garden of Love-, set in a male-female inverted Edo-period town of Royal Palace, was launched in the Taiwan and Hong Kong markets in October 2013, where it has built up a favorable reputation and gained a high rating in the app market, just as it has previously in Japan.

With the launch of the current edition of IKEMEN Royal Palace -Midnight Cinderella-, as with the Japanese edition, members who play the game can enjoy a sweet love story populated by handsome male characters with strong individual traits such as the Knight and Duke of the Royal Household who give off a mysterious atmosphere, the amorous Trainer, etc., who together inhabit a gorgeous aristocratic court world. Since many players in Taiwan and Hong Kong are already enjoying the Japanese edition, the new edition comes with a function that allows users to switch to the Japanese edition display, so they can enjoy the game either in traditional Chinese characters or in Japanese script.

Moreover, the game is filled with cute avatars such as colorful accessories and small articles, dresses and horse-drawn carts that appear as if in a picture book version of Cinderella.

CYBIRD is happy to deliver exciting, entertaining and enjoyable games to mobile users throughout the world by actively developing high-quality contents for overseas markets.

-- Story --

Do you suppose a commoner can become a Princess of a country!?

The Princess's role is "to find the Prince of this country."

Do you think a commoner who visits a castle can be elevated somehow by being told, "You are a Princess of this country"?

Nevertheless, you somehow want to be nominated as a “princess” of the kingdom!?

The head of the Knights of the Royal Household makes a secret vow, “All my life, I will be by your side to protect you.”

“If you look at me like that, Princess, you won’t be able to go back to the castle,” says the Duke who is a candidate to be the next King at a secret midnight meeting.

Who is the one and only Prince that you the Princess will choose?

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @Things...
PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle?

Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more.

The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
Between the compelling mockups and specs produced by your analysts and designers, and the resulting application built by your developers, there is a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral out of control, and applications fall short of requirements.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway.

But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
