The PlayStation 3 may be light on RPGs now, but it’s getting plenty of MMORPG love with games like DC Universe Online, Free Realms, and the Agency in development. Predating all of Sony Online Entertainment’s projects is a title from Dynasty Warriors maker Koei.
Uncharted Waters Online: Cruz del Sur began life on PCs. Koei’s game is set in the Age of Exploration and lets players sail the seas, trade, and engage in large scale ship battles. On April 28 a PlayStation 3 port with the latest expansion pack arrives in Japan. The PS3 version connects with the existing PC servers and works with USB keyboards to ease chatting.
Since Koei never localized Uncharted Waters Online into English I wouldn’t count on this coming stateside anytime soon — if ever. The funny thing is Uncharted Waters Online isn’t the only PC to PS3 MMO in Japan either. Last year Q Entertainment released a client for free MMO Angel Love Online as a PlayStation Network download.
