Asker Online is closing down next month

Well, that did not last long. Only months after launching, Asker Online announced that it is shutting down on March 22nd.

The action MMO featured elaborate dungeon crawls and boss fights and was positioned as a rival to Vindictus. Neowiz pushed the game through the beta stages last summer, although we hadn’t heard much about the game since then, suggesting that it didn’t make much of an impact in Korea.

Asker Online will join the funeral procession of several other overseas titles being shuttered this winter, including 9 Dragons and Gunslinger Stratos Reloaded.

Steparu also compares Asker to Dragon Nest and C9 in his textual description. You can see the title in action via his gameplay video that we’ve embedded after the break.

(We also got our hands on it on the show floor, which might have been to its detriment.)

In other news:

We also have our usual list of betas past the break. Is something amiss therein? Why, tell us in the comments!
