Today it was announced that, new MMO, Omega Zodiac will be launching a week early exclusively on Nutaku (it'll be hard to miss Omega Zodiac on the front page). Omega Zodiac adds to the growing list of foreign games, such as Angelic Saga Online and Idol Wars Online, Nutaku has localized for western audiences.
Developed by Proficient City, a branch of Game Hollywood, Omega Zodiac is a an action MMORPG that mixes Greek and Norse mythology, and takes some obvious inspiration from Saint Seiya to create an interesting backdrop for the game. The story focuses on the Goddess Athena as she recruits you, the child of an Olympian and Asgardian, to help her stop Ragnarok. Before you begin your dungeon crawling you'll have to choose between one of three classes: Knight, Archer, or Mage. You'll spend your time acquiring new abilities, skills, powers, and Sacred Sets (think Saint Seiya's Cloths) as you protect Athena and prevent Ragnarok.
Omega Zodiac features graphics that do well to show off your characters combos and special attacks, which you unlock by progressing through your classes two skill trees. You'll be able to compete against other players in both PvP and PvE Arenas, or just complete quests and challenge Sacred Set Dungeons to find rare items if PvP competition isn't your thing. You'll also be able to form your own Guilds and hold Guild Battles against other opposing Guilds. Being a freemium game, there will be microtransactions, but we don't know yet how they will work in the game or if they will strongly curtail its appeal to players.
If you're a fan of Greek or Norse mythology, Saint Seiya, or action MMORPGs then Omega Zodiac might be worth a look.
