Sword Girls - Slashing its way to you this October

(Official website) A few days back, I posted about China MMO giant ChangYou acquiring the rights for DaVinci Online (link) for its North America and Europe subsidiary. Before the age of Renaissance hits us, ChangYou is taking us back to the world of anime by announcing Sword Girls, a new anime online collectible card game.

Developed by famed Korea studio, Zeonix, it will be ChangYou's first foray in this genre, mostly dominated by indie titles (ok, except Magic the Gathering Online). The official press release is below and the game is slated for Closed Beta in October. I had actually seen this game being advertised in Korea for the past few weeks on ThisIsGame, the country's biggest gaming website. Stay tuned for more info!

ChangYou.com (US) and Zeonix Team Up to Launch the Ultimate Online Collectible Card Game

SANTA CLARA, CA (August 15, 2011) – ChangYou.com (US), a leading publisher of free-to-play massively multiplayer online games (MMOG) in North America, announced today Sword Girls, an all-new anime online collectible card game (CCG), will enter its closed beta phase on October 12, 2011. The first trailer is available for viewing on the official website at www.SwordGirlsOnline.com.

Developed by Zeonix, renowned creator behind popular online trading card games (TCG) Fantasy Masters and Ragnarok TCG, Sword Girls takes the CCG experience to new heights with its visually stunning anime design and strategic game play that will entice both veteran players and newcomers alike. The game features over 500 uniquely drawn playable cards that can be collected through the innovative card crafting system. Players gather crafting materials by competing their way through dozens of dungeon levels against computer opponents or by challenging other players to online duels. Sword Girls is free to play for everyone and works on any Flash enabled web browser. Players can expect frequent content releases that will bring along new cards and new game features.

“We are thrilled to partner with the talented developers at Zeonix in bringing Sword Girls to our western audience,” said Jeffrey Shen, Producer on Sword Girls. “Closed beta will give players a sneak peek at the game’s unique content and, at the same time, allows us to fix any critical bugs in the process. Access to closed beta will be limited and players who sign up on the official website will have a chance to receive a beta code.”

“Sword Girls is a truly unique online collectible card game that fuses charming anime characters, fast game play and deep strategies in one complete package,” said Jaehyuck Park, Lead Designer at Zeonix. “By combining our expertise in developing the best online TCGs and ChangYou’s vast experience in publishing online games, players can look forward to a fun and addictive online CCG this holiday season.”

In celebration of the Sword Girls closed beta launch, ChangYou.com (US) is giving away the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 16GB tablets to selected lucky fans who register on the game’s official website at www.SwordGirlsOnline.com. Registration begins today and will end on October 12, 2011. Additional information about the promotion can be found on the Sword Girls Facebook fan page at www.Facebook.com/SwordGirls.

Saint Seiya 2 - The unofficial online game

Perfect World recently revealed Saint Seiya Online being in development and claimed that a beta phase will begin before the end of the year. However, another fellow China developer has claimed the rights to release the first Saint Seiya MMO. In fact, the sequel was playable since June.Yes, this is the unofficial bootleg version of what Perfect World is going to offer, with no apparent contract signed with SEGA.

How does the game work? Well, players will have to choose a side first, be it the Golden Saints or the Specters. Then, choose a "Guardian" to follow, which will give characters a special skill. The funny thing is, both Saints and Specters share the same skills and Guardians...

Upon entering the game, there will be different tutorials for either side. There are 4 classes to choose from as you can see from the videos, each with different skills. I only tried the skills of each classes and did not actually play the game, since the 2.5D graphic was really hurting my eyes...

The game has many features related to horoscopes, including bonuses and skills etc. So how is the Golden Cloths activated? Well, you got to hit a certain level before right-clicking the container box in the inventory.

At lower levels, you can only access the Bronze Cloths, followed by Silver and Gold. This transformation is only temporary as it consumes mana until it is fully depleted. Yeap, no Golden Cloths in the cash shop! The game will be awesome with better graphics and design since the content is very much "completed" in a sense. And there is PvP as well!

Lineage II Japan celebrates 7th anniversary

I don't really report much on Japanese MMOs, but I happen to chance upon this while doing my daily internet scanning routine. Lineage II is currently celebrating its 7th anniversary in Japan, and to commemorate the event a special 7th anniversary game package was released. Coming in very limited quantities, it is being retailed at a price of 5,040 Yen, around 65 USD.

The package includes a DVD client, specially designed 30-days subscription card (like anyone will use it), a special in-game weapon of your choice, Siege Golem origami and a game soundtrack. The store below at Akihabara apparently only has 300 copies on sale! There is also a raffle (or lucky draw) going on where 30 winners will get exclusive in-game armor parts.
