Record of Lodoss War Online is launching in 2016

A very long time late and many dollars short, it seems.

Record of Lodoss War Online is old-school. It’s meant to be old-school. The IP that it’s referencing is old-school, its gameplay mechanics and graphics are meant to be old-school, the long stretches of radio silence regarding the title are old-school. Also generally unwelcome by fans. So there’s reason to be happy that the game will apparently be launching at some point in 2016.

The launch will be in Korea, although the title was originally meant for Japanese players, and there’s no word on any sort of localization. Only time will tell if it does well enough to be considered, although one can’t imagine that potential publishers are tripping over themselves for an old-school title based on an anime series from two decades ago. Perhaps we can hope!

SirUrza quark1020 Madda I ended up seeing the OVA before I saw the original. None of the video rental places, back when I was a kid, kept their anime section organized, if they even had one, and they never had the full set of any of the longer series. It wasn’t until I had high speed internet and discovered anime pira….ahem…. fan translation for educational purposes, that I saw the original series.

Lodoss Wars was like the japanese version of Dragonlance.  It was a great anime.  It set the tone for me for what I like in anime.  It was more serious than most.  I’d love to play a game in that IP.  But I doubt I’ll ever get the chance.

A Lodoss War MMO!?  I had no idea.  Man that takes me back.  Hopefully they’ll release that Japanese version after all and maybe I can sneak onto a server.
