I don't know why is that doesn't sell on Japan. They get the good stuff and still boycot the damn thing. How ungrateful.
Newest game from Ragnarok Odyssey and Dokuro developer will be a free-to-play action-RPG featuring four-player online co-op.
Game Arts, the developers behind the Grandia and Lunar series, as well as recent fares like Ragnarok Odyssey and Dokuro, is working on a new action-RPG called Picotto Knights.
According to the official site of the game, Picotto Knights will be a free-to-play title and features up to four player online co-op play. Alternately, players can go solo and use AI-controlled versions of their previous co-op party members.
Actual combat will be real-time and presented in a side-scrolling perspective. Players control a soldier called a cocoroid who is highly customizable in terms of skillsets, appearances, and weapons-handling. The game offers up to eight different kinds of weapons for the cocoroid to wield, ranging from spears to bowguns.
The game will be out for the PS Vita. There is currently no release date announced for the RPG. For more information on Game Arts' previous effort, check out GameSpot's preview of Dokuro and Ragnarok Odyssey.
Cool. If it's completely free and you don't need DLC to experience the entire offerings of the game, even better.
I like the graphics of this a lot better than Castle Crashers'.
Also announced at the same time was Guardian Hearts Online, another free to play, turn based RPG.
Looks like FTP is starting to take off on consoles at last.
@3nd_Of_The_Lin3 Yeah, that's what I was gonna say. It doesn't remind me of Castle Crashers, definitely reminds me of Spiral Knights.
Hm, that just makes me want Spiral Knights on the Vita.
@Facelord Idk, it really kinda does look like Castle Crashers at first glance. But I never played Spiral Knights so idk.
I get the feeling that this could actually end up being better than both games, but we shall see...

Picotto Knights may be free to play, but by avoiding common pitfalls typical of the pricing model, it could end up as the Vita's surprise hit of 2013.
