Sega Picks Up DOTA-Like PC Game, Chaos Heroes Online

By Spencer . February 13, 2013 . 1:43am

Sega is actively picking up MMORPGs and localizing them for Japan. They already have Rusty Hearts and now they announced Chaos Heroes Online which is the Japanese version of Chaos Online. When Chaos Online was first revealed it was likened to DOTA, a popular eSports game. DOTA is extremely popular in Korea and Chaos Heroes Online is from local Korean developer Neoact. The game has over 70 heroes like Agnes and Akasha shown below.

 

Chaos Heroes Online starts service this spring for Windows PC as a free to play game.

    Wrong StarCraft is what’s famous in Korea. DotA’s largest population of gamers is in China and Russia.

    VALVE is planning to release it’s sequel DOTA2 in Japan so I don’t think it’ll last long.

    • Isaac Newton

      But DOTA2 has no moe characters so I doubt it will sell good in japan!

      • Sergio Briceño

        Also, not trying to start a fanboy war or anything so I won’t bring any new games into the conversation, but Dota 2 has nothing on DotA (or a lot of other better Mobas for that matter).

        • Guest

          Very few mobas match the popularity of Dota(and Dota 2 to an extent) except LoL(due to it’s casual-ness) and for good reason too. Even an unfinished product is one of the most played games on Steam.
          This game looks like a bad anime(Japan, figures) knockoff of Dota. They probably didn’t keep any of the mechanics or nuances that mad dota popular and just used Dota’s character archetypes. Mobas are becoming the new FPS nowadays with all these clones.

        You got a point there haha.

  • Go2hell66

    damn nice artwork!

    • Sergio Briceño

      I love it whenever a female character gets the japanese art treatment.

  • Z3

    The gameplay trailer for Akasha is the trailer for the game

  • sibarraz

    mmm. I hope to see some sega characters in the game

    This has nothing to do with the game, but has anyone made an ERPG Title Generator yet? I’d love to play “Tales of the Last Chaos Darkness [Germanic-sounding word] Fate Hero Chronicles Online”.

  • AyenteX

    While the Dota derivative called DotA All-Stars became popular in Europe and China, Dota Chaos became the most popular Dota map in South Korea after Eul stopped developing Warcraft 3 DotA.
