    I’m really curious to see how the different genres will be used together. Hopefully IFI will bring this to the West.

    I’m confused. Is this an MMO or is it like Goddess Online where the in game characters are in an MMO?

    latter. It’s a game that seems to have a lot of similarities to .hack, only I guess if you worked in CCC.

    I hope this has a higher budget and less re used assets.
