Emil Chronicle Online – Japan server shutting down this August

Emil Chronicle Online, otherwise known as ECO, was first published back in 2005. Since then, the various overseas servers have closed due to publisher mismanagement, with only the Japan server standing tall. Recently, GungHo Online Entertaqinment announced the Japanese server will be shutting down on August 31, citing the impossible task of keeping up with modern players’ demands.

With 4 playable races (Human, Angel, Devil, Robot), over 50 jobs to choose from, and tons of gameplay features, Emil Chronicle Online was perhaps the best 3D online game not to get mainstream attention back then. Since the game was co-developed by 3 studios, I wonder if the game would live on in the near future as a mobile title. But until that day comes, ECO has officially reached its end.

I hope they’ll make something better but still have the essence of Emil Chronicle Online in near future. Good game, good community and good memories.
