Koei Tecmo and NHN PlayArt are going to host a closed beta for Atelier Online.
The online mobile spinoff set within the alchemy RPG franchise will have a beta test beginning on July 2nd. If you’re looking to sign up for a chance at playing it, you can apply here.
Applications for the beta are now open, but will run through June 25th at 3PM Japan time. Only 3,000 applicants will be selected, half for iOS and half for Android. If you’re selected to play test the game, you’ll be able to play from July 2nd at 3 PM Japan time to July 6th at the same time of day.
Lastly, since the game has already received 200,000 pre-registrations, all players of the game will get a free character, Rorona, plus 10 gacha rolls to possibly get equipment.
Atelier Online is currently in development for both iOS and Android.
