Why do I have a feeling that this will end up being referred to as Vert's game?

If this is an MMO, it better not have region-locked servers or, failing that, it at least doesn't have separate lists for the JP and EN versions. Of course, even with region-free servers, I'd be fucked if there was a South Korean version.

That said, it's more than likely just Vert's game and it'll have an MMO aspect. I can't see this series pulling off an actual MMO in its current state.

...And with that, all the goddesses have a game to call their own! :P
Where's that Four Felons spinoff game at? :lol:

I just hope CH handles Beru-Beru's new game well...

Indeed. I can't see what elements of the game could be MMO at all.

To go off of my previous comment, some initial thoughts. I know I'm probably just reiterating what everyone's already thinking but whatever. I'm bored.

I don't think that this is going to be an actual MMO, or even a mobile game as I saw some speculate, but just another regular spin-off but with an MMO theme to it this time around.

As also stated previously, I'm also willing to bet that this is going to end up being Vert's game. Given the usual trend with the spin-offs and this being something right up her alley, not to mention the big tip-off of having the title of "4 Goddesses Online" shown off which she exclusively plays in like every entry since "MK2", I'd honestly be more surprised if that wasn't the case.

The basic premise of the story will probably be obvious enough for the most part, which should come to no surprise since the series isn't exactly subtle with the material it parodies/references. Get ready for some "suddenly getting sucked into an MMO setting" hijinks I bet.

The gameplay is the only mystery to me for now. Given that it's MMO themed, I don't think it's going to have turn based combat. Probably will have real-time action based combat but probably something different from how it was with "Nep U" and "Blanc vs Zombies" which are more musou/beat-em'-up styled. Maybe something more similar to how ".Hack" or the "SAO" games play maybe.

At this point, I'm just hoping CH at least makes this a halfway decent game. My main worry is that they are already working on quite a few projects, including this one it'd be 4 in total, so the spread out of resources is a bit concerning.

I'll be waiting for the SAO satire and references, then. :lol:

While it is probably just an MMO inspired game, didn't they say in an interview once they wanted to make an MMO?

Maybe it'll be a browser type thing like Kancolle and such.

I doubt it. They already tried that formula once with Neptune Collection.

MMO or .hack-esque mock-MMO seems almost a given.

Four Goddesses Online in the games is briefly mentioned as a sort of Monster Hunter type of game with quests and sort of raids, but I doubt it's going to be something that complicated.

Maybe a much more watered down version of that? Something like Xenoblade Chronicles, perhaps?

While it would be a fair assumption, the teaser I saw gave absolutely nothing away (there were scenes from the other games and the title).

It is definitely not going to be an actual MMO. Just a simulation like the .hack games, and since it says "Four Goddesses Online", this has to be Vert's game.
