Publisher Aeria Games and developer X-Legend Entertainment descended on the Baltimore Convention Center to announce their latest MMORPG during Otakon, Baltimore’s annual celebration of all things anime, game and geek related. Titled Aura Kingdom, this free-to-play title features some stunning anime-inspired character designs and rich and colorful graphics that feature sprawling expanses of fantasy landscapes to explore.
“Aura Kingdom is the highest quality game we’ve ever seen in its genre, and we’re very glad to be able to share it with the eager fans at this event,” said JT Nguyen, Chief Operating Officer, Aeria Games. “We have high expectations that this game will resonate well with our community and are excited to work with such talented developers once again.”
One of the major focuses of the title’s gameplay comes in the form of your companions you gather along your journey. These interactive allies will aid your avatar by joining in the fray to unleash powerful combo attacks, as well as run errands for the hero, so you can focus on the adventure at hand. The companion creatures in Aura Kingdom will even retain details from previous quests and will coverse with the player about your past exploits in the game’s fantasy realm.
Another main draw of the game is its emphasis on player customization. Initially fledgling adventurers can choose from one of the game’s initial eight classes. However, as they progress they are able to learn another weapon type from another character class, allowing players to create a more dynamic build that can handle twice the hurdles the game throws your way.
Aura Kingdom will be released simultaneously in English and French languages, though Aeria Games intends to add more languages down the line. Anyone looking to give this anime-inspired MMORGP a shot can sign up for the beta here.
