    I’m glad there’s a date. I’m really excited to play this.

  • AnotherTime

    It really doesn’t look half bad for what it is, and Aeria generally has some good games available. Here’s hoping this one doesn’t disappoint!

  • Looks pretty awesome. I hope the game is as awesome as it looks.

  • Cazar

    I really hate the term anime MMO. Just because a game has a certain art style doesn’t mean it has jack to do with anime.

    • AnotherTime

      It actually does. It bears the appearance of the anime-style of drawing an art, therefore, it possess the qualities of said anime-style. If it contains the properties of such, then by the principle of its merits, it is an ‘anime’ based on styling alone.

      • Cazar

        Technically the art form derived from manga not anime, but aside from that the term is just unnecessary and misleading. You don’t go calling regular JRPGs and other games with manga style character designs “anime games” and this should be no different. The merit that a game should be recognized by should extend beyond its appearance and calling it an anime game falsely implies that it’s based off of a TV anime.

    lol, i thought it was jude for a second from tales of xillia.

    • Luke Blackwood

      Same here, lol

    • Jaeger Knighty

      Me too!

  • luckgandor

    Quite frankly, any action MMO that uses a point-and-click combat system is an instant turnoff, regardless of how nice the graphics are. I’ll be sticking to Dragon Nest.

    • DanielGearSolid

      Seriously, its the worst kind of tease to see your character pull off these sick combos, and all you can do is watch

  • Richard N

    I’m sure the gameplay will look exactly like this trailer.

    • Godmars

      Of course it will. Why even doubt…?

  • DanielGearSolid

    With Ps4 being so open to free to play, I think aeria games should consider it

    • InfectedAI

      Isn’t Aeria more of a distributor? It would be the game’s developers that would need to consider it I think.

  • Vitor Duarte

    Aahhh aeria… reminding me of the good times in SMT Imagine.

  • HerosLight

    I was able to get my hands on the Founders Beta from Siliconera’s giveaway.

    It’s pretty cool. There are a few things I don’t like (besides the point-and-click combat system), but it is just a beta so it’ll improve sometime.

    The GMs spawning OP monsters in the fields were insane, I was too weak. (It was an event). So many people too.

    • InfectedAI

      Congrats on the Founder’s pack! Any story in the game? Have you got a chance to check out the crafting system if there is one?

    • KnifeAndFork

      As usual, looks nothing like the heavily doctored cinematic bullshot trailer shown above and instead, looks like a clustered typical memo mess. Would rather just have a cleaner offline console story/character driven Cinematic JRPG like the trailer suggests


      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Nooo because being fully cinematic is a possibility as a game and everyone expected that from watching the trailer.

  • XypherCode

    whew can’t wait! :)

  • Alestaos

    That looks cool, but unfortunaley with alot of MMO letdowns lately, i would of perferred a trailer that showed its ingame graphics and battle system. It looks great from that trailer but the game isnt gonna look like that nor play like it. If anyone has links that can show me its true graphics and gameplay style i would be intrested. However this is also says nothing about the story which for me is a big factor. Maybe MMOs can take what FFXIV and Wildstar are doing and thats releasing both fantastic trailers but also showing through other trailers etc there true ingame graphics gameplay characters etc.

  • Kornelious

    Hey it’s Jude Mat-oh wait…what a tease :(
