Cosmic Break developer CyberStep just launched the English website for Onigiri, a Japanese style action MMORPG that should be available worldwide later this year. The site is still barebones but there’s a short gameplay trailer and a description of the game, as well as the announcement that the alpha test should begin soon.
Here’s the official Onigiri description and the trailer:
Onigiri is the tale of another world, based on the myths, tales, stories, and legends of old Japan. You, a descendant of the ancient Oni, and your 8 companions, must set forth against the Kamigui and their hidden masters, the Goikkou.
– Action packed battle system that allows you to change weapons in an instant, putting a variety of skills at your command!
– No MMORPG would be complete without PC parties, but in addition, your brave companions will accompany you!
– The 8 companions don’t just accompany you into battle, they bring their own specialties to assist your journey. As your bonds of friendship grow deeper, they are inspired to greater heights of ability. For example, the merchant Miroku, as you grow closer, will sell better gear for a lower price.
