I’m not really over Peria Chronicles, but one of the things that attracted my interest to the game was the loveliness of its cel-shaded graphics and its style. That feels like it’s a bit underserved in MMOs at this point; we have a fair number of games using conventionally lit 3-D models with a very anime influence, but that sort of cel-shaded look that was all the rage for a while in console gaming hasn’t ever come over in a big way. Which I feel is a bit of a loss.
So today, we’re wondering about the MMO that would make the best look of that cel-shading look. It could be the existing models done in that style, it could be totally new models and assets made just to play that look up. It’s not realistic, but let’s play with it anyhow. Would you like to give Star Wars: The Old Republic the hard edges of an animated show? Make World of Warcraft look more delightfully animated? Really throw everyone for a loop with a cel-shaded Ultima Online? The sky’s the limit!
