Seoul, Korea, November 14 , 2012--- Joymax, leading online game developer and publisher, announced the unleashing of a terrifying addition for next week to their free-to-play MMORPG Digimon Masters.  Based on the popular Japanese animation series, Digimon Masters takes place in both the human and digital worlds, ensuring the two don’t collide with disastrous results.  Today marks both an exciting and ferocious new foe for Tamers to pit their Digimon against: Armagemon!  Not paired with a Digimon yet?  Register now at!

Digimon fans should immediately recognize Armagemon as the main villain of the fourth Digimon movie.  During the film, it displayed immaculate strength while fighting against other Digimon as it raged through downtown Tokyo.  Its power is undeniable, so the question remains: do YOU as a Tamer have what it takes to control this fearsome new potential ally?

Armagemon, a spider-legged Digimon, is the final stage of the Keramon Digivolution, which can be reached through Burst mode.  Its starring role in the Digimon anime thus far includes being the main villain during the fourth Digimon movie, wreaking havoc in the city and frightening all of the inhabitants of Tokyo.  Though this event won’t be re-enacted in Digimon Masters, players can still quake at Armagemon’s destructive strength in combat by pitting it against other Digimon.  Once a force of evil, now this infamous enemy will help save the Digital World!

“Players have been asking for some of the more unique and exotic Digimon that have been spotted only in movies or outside the traditional pool of Digimon players would normally encounter,” said the lead developer of Digimon Masters.  "So next week we’re launching the first of an exclusive Digimon line to fill that exact need.  Come, shake this new Digimon’s many hands!”

Next week is not only a big day for Digimon Masters, but all of Joymax's titles! Named "Joymax Day", this shared one week event across all Joymax games will present every player with a whopping 1000% EXP Gain item! Players can earn more amazing prizes by joining the Joymax Day events at the Digimon Masters Official Website at

Digimon Masters fans can exchange screen shots, capturing and training tips, and their stories of Armagemon via the official community at, on Facebook at, or Twitter at
