LOS ANGELES – October 16, 2020 – NextShark and Immortal Studios are proud to announce a newly established partnership to unveil a rich wuxia, or martial arts fantasy, universe of stories that have long been iconic to Asian and Asian American cultures.
NextShark connected with Immortal in the summer of 2020 as they launched their first title, “The Adept”, to kick off the interconnected wuxia universe which was funded on Kickstarter in under three hours.
The long term partnership now has its sights set on making an array of Immortal content available on the NextShark platform, including exclusive engagements for NextShark readers.
NextShark founder and CEO, Benny Luo, says, “As an Asian American who grew up in this country, it was rare to see heroes who looked like me. We are extremely excited to bring these incredible cultural stories to our diverse community and push Asian representation further than it has ever gone before.”
Immortal Studios CEO, Peter Shiao, says, “We are very excited to partner with NextShark to bring empowering and authentic Wuxia stories to its vibrant community. The time has come for Asians to take our seat in mainstream global entertainment, and the Immortal storyverse is the perfect vehicle to authentically and powerfully achieve that overdue presence, not just with one character or story, but many. Stay tuned to a lot more updates just around the corner!”
