Me too. :/ But srsly, an MMORPG based on Kino no Tabi would be pretty much the best thing ever.

Wow, I pretty much came in here thinking the exact same damn thing as everyone else.

Kino no Tabi is like one of the most impressive titles that other people don't seem to appreciate as often. We released one single volume of the book, and we screwed that translation up so bad that the author cut off all ties with America afterwards. Because of our editor's mistakes, we are the ones that must suffer now.

The anime was still beautiful. Still gotta see the films.

I was thinking the same thing.

Even if they did one, I bet they'd just fill it with monsters and level grinding, though. SadSad

Edit: Ideally, they'd add new lands incrementally, and each one would have some unique gameplay mechanic, or puzzle, or something.

Yep, I just have to echo what everyone else has said. An MMO based off of Kino no Tabi could be very interesting.

It's funny how this whole topic only has any attention because of a completely different, yet much better, series.

Quite. Perhaps Kino's Journey could be adapted into a role playing game however, featuring numerous and critical moral decisions as principle gameplay mechanics.
I don't know if it'd quite work as a multiplayer game though, unless one were able team up with a friend playing as the talking motorcycle.

If it was a MMO, people would play as custom travellers, not Kino.
