ETERNAL, Asobimo‘s mobile MMORPG, will be having a livestream event on 29 October from 21:30 to 22:30 JST. You can set yourself a reminder for the broadcast via Youtube here. There will also be a review livestream regarding the previous closed beta test on 27 October from 20:00 to 21:00 JST here. Results from the survey from the closed beta will be released, alongside any Q&A from viewers.
ETERNAL was meant to launch early 2020, but as you can guess by now, the game has undergone many delays since the original schedule. The ETERNAL livestream is meant to reveal a new release date, presumably towards the very end of 2020 or sometime 2021.
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.
The game will have features such as:
- Over 100 unique quests
- Mount and pet system
- 4 playable classes (Warrior, Paladin, Wizard, Priest)
- 2 PvE dungeons for 5-player parties (with matchmaking system)
- 50-man Guilds
- 15 v 15 real time battles Battlefield mode
