posted on by Egan Loo
Online game company GameOn presented a new anime promotional video for its Lodoss-Tō Senki: Densetsu no Keishōsha (Record of Lodoss War: The Legendary Heir) browser game on Wednesday.
Fumitoshi Oizaki (Acchi Kocchi, Romeo × Juliet) directed the promotional video at Ordet, the studio founded by Yutaka Yamamoto, in collaboration with Encourage Films and Raiden Film. Atsushi Komori (Asura Cryin') designed the characters, and Hitoshi Sakimoto (Romeo × Juliet, Valkyria Chronicles, The Tower of Druaga: The Aegis of Uruk) composed the main theme.
GameOn also began accepting applications for 3,000 beta testers on the "ultra-tactical card battle role-playing game" on Wednesday. The application period ends next Monday, and the closed beta test will run from November 22 to November 28. Those who take part will receive a rare Gacha ticket and a limited item.
GameOn announced last year that it acquired the global license to make an online game for computers and mobile phones based on the Record of Lodoss War fantasy franchise from Kadokawa Production and Slowcurve. Ryo Mizuno, the novelist and co-creator of the franchise, is serving as supervisor on the development of the online game.
Players can form a party with the main character Parn from Mizuno's novels and subsequent anime, and search 3D dungeons. Players can then engage enemies with card battles.
GameOn's development and distribution license is worldwide, and the company intends to run the game not only in Japan, but throughout the world.
