Game Power 7 has signed a distribution agreement with Pluto Games, a PC and video games distributor in the Arab world. The agreement allows gamers around the region to purchase the game package and game payment cards of Arabic Rappelz from major retailers around the region such as Carrefour, Sharaf DG, Tokyo Games, and Virgin Mega Store.
Game Power 7 started the commercial service of Arabic Rappelz March 2009.
