MMORPG ‘Zu Online’ introduces ‘X-Weapon Plan’…

Despite receiving mostly negative reviews, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” has already made more than $130 million in the US box office since opening two weeks ago. Apparently attempting to piggyback on a bit of that fame, IGG has come up with the “X-Weapon Plan” for their free-to-play MMORPG game, “Zu Online.”

According to the company’s release, this plan is designed “to help players get the Spars they need.” It’s not really explained, except for this statement from IGG: “Look to the Item Mall and you’ll see were re-introducing Medium Attacking Spars and Medium Defensive Spars.” Ok…

So what do you think? Am I right in my assumption that this is a shameless attempt at riding on the fame of another property, or is it coincidental?
