Color us surprised. According to Siliconera, the shooter Ghost in the Shell Online: First Connection is going to launch first in North America, going against the general rule that states that an MMO is first released in South Korea and only God knows when in western territories. Only this time, the tables have turned.
Developer Neople, the same studio that is bringing back Dungeon Fighter Online to North America after Nexon ditched it, has revealed the news in the video below. Neople general producer In Lee stated the following: “As Neople’s first FPS, this is a project in which we have a lot of pride. While the first tests will take place in South Korea, we plan to advance to a global release, and the actual service will start with North America.”
Ghost in the Shell Online: First Connection is a free-to-play online first-person shooter based on the popular anime and is boasting 5,000 different mixes for cyborg customizations, featuring several skills such as speed, stealth or support and a skill share system. The first Korean closed beta was recently announced and will run from April 8 to April 12.
