There are not many MMO news I found interesting these few days, as most companies have already announced them and awaiting the betas in early 2011. I manage to find out something interesting and official. CJ Internet, one of the larger MMO publishers in Korea, announced some of their overseas activities and global expansion project for 2011. While gPotato’s Prius Online already has a teaser website up, the announcement also said that SD Gundam: Capsule Fighter Online is scheduled for the Southeast Asia (SEA) region in 2011 as well. Currently, there are servers for Korea, China, Taiwan. Hong Kong and of course, Japan.
The game basically plays like a online third person shooter (MMOTPS), with players entering different rooms and modes to play. Players may also customize their machines or purchase new ones through the capsule system. From the Korean and Chinese servers, there are machines up till the latest Gundam 00, Unicorn Gundam and even the folks from the Three Kingdoms arc, so players need not worry about the lack of varieties.
|Sorry, no bigger resolution is available.|
There is no publisher or language mentioned (can be either English or Chinese) for the SEA server, but I have a hunch it will be the first English server for the game. Sadly, there are no news of Dragonball Online being taken by any overseas publisher as of now. The OnRPG’s English crowd has been playing in the Hong Kong server for sometime now, so head on to the forum thread if you wish to find some buddies!
