For the uninitiated, ETERNAL is an MMORPG smartphone project by Asobimo and is the culmination of the company’s decade-long experience in the space since launching Iruna in 2008. The primary draw of the game are the character designs by renowned illustrator Yoshitaka Amano, a name that might be familiar to fans of the Final Fantasy franchise. The game focuses on the war between the nations of Nordania and Ordo, and players take on the role of the protagonist who must fight against dark creatures and protect their country from the invasion of nefarious forces.
