+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Unison League is a unique multiplayer JRPG that challenges you and a few other players to work together and unleash a mighty Unison Attack which summons a powerful creature to destroy your enemies.

There's PvE and PvP guild battles to fight your way through, as well as lobbies to chat to your fellow players in, and you can fully customise your character in your own image.

Unison League was recently updated for German, French, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese languages, so we reached out to the global business group at Ateam to find out whether we can expect collaborations with Western IPs following the excellent Japanese IP collaborations that we've already seen.
