2006 Korean anime MMO NosTale has landed on Steam

Last month, we mentioned in passing an ancient anime MMO by Korean studio Entwell called NosTale, which Germany’s Gameforge apparently resurrected a while back. As of today, NosTale is even more easily accessible on this side of the Atlantic, as the studio’s now launched it on Steam proper. Gameforge is touting the game’s three classes, 28 specs, “extensive” pet system, and six-act storyline.

“The world of exciting anime online role-playing game NosTale is threatened by a dark menace. As Swordsman, Archer or Mage, the player must protect the vibrant village of NosVille and face the approaching dangers. The impressive pet system allows players to capture wild monsters and animals and then tame them. Battling aside, you can retreat to your Miniland. Here you can build a warehouse and decorate the garden with trees, plants and shrubs.”

It’s free-to-play on Steam right now, with 20% off sales on companions, mounts, and costumes, plus double-drop and double-gold events running into next week for those who jump in now.

Welcome back to our intermittent series on MMOs and other multiplayer games you you’ve never heard of! Tonight we have four titles to highlight.

NosTale

Remember NosTale? Yeah, we didn’t either, but it’s a super old anime MMO that Gameforge is resurrecting and plopping down on Steam, apparently at some point in September.

“Swordsmen, Archers and Mages – each class offers a unique flavour and the opportunity to create your own personalised character. Tame wild animals, train them and use them tactically in battle. Other players and partners can also join you on your adventures. Take some time out from adventuring in your very own Miniland, a place where you can build your own home, look after the garden and party with your friends.”

Cute! What else have we got here…
