Yes, this is apparently not a late April Fools’ joke. According to various foreign reports, a full 3D MMO is currently being developed for beloved Japanese manga classic, Saint Seiya, otherwise known as Zodiac Knights in North America. There was a 2.5D Chinese MMO which ripped off this name as well, but it didn’t count as no official agreement was made with the creator. Before I miss out, the MMO us currently rumored to be under development by Perfect World Beijing.
An official announcement regarding the MMO is expected to be release in a few months, with 2 of the company’s other MMOs also teased by insiders. The first will be a 2.5D MMORPG based on a popular Chinese internet novel while the 2nd is a Western style MMO designed for competitive and arena competition. These MMOs are currently not scheduled for 2011. Once again, please note that the information in this post are all rumors.
