Shin-Chan MMO, World of Buttcraft Online?

That's what *I* woulda called it.


Okay, that's not the actual title of the game, but MMO-crazy South Korea is going to have Crayon Shin-chan Online, an MMORPG based on the late Yoshito Usui's goofy childhood humor manga. Ironically, the company making it is "WindySoft." If you didn't connect that title with a variety of fart jokes pretty much immediately, then I'm guessing Crayon Shin-chan Online isn't for you.

You know, on the note of MMOs based on unexpected source materials, I'd dig a Shakespeare MMO, where you could go around through Verona, Athens, Scotland, and of course the wide variety of locations in England, and probably some of the more fantastical places as well, if you could find them, and you could hang out with the characters and stuff...

...I don't know what you'd "do" so it might get boring after a bit, but I still kinda dig the concept. But back to the real topic at hand, I actually kinda like the idea of a Shin-chan RPG (and others based on manga and anime titles). What series would you want an MMO based on? Code Geass comes to mind as a place where one could play...

if you are in an mmo in england mind ye old chavs, they crit your mind hard.
 
I would like a Bleach Mmo :P though it probably wouldnt work out well it would be cool playin a shinigami, also a gundam mmo would be good i guess

@Chengy: there's a gundam mmo, it's called gundam capsule something, only in japan
Chengyon Dec. 31, 2009 at 9:29 a.m.
@cfatalis: ah right, well thats not very good then lol, any idea if its actully good though ?
cfatalison Dec. 31, 2009 at 9:31 a.m.
@Chengy: eh i played it, for a while, it was how to say it.... cute, if you have ever played say gundam vs gundam and sd g generation, it look like those two have a marriage and here's the child, that aside, it's awesome in some way

@cfatalis: Hah, I love that description!

I think the world of Inuyasha would make a pretty good setting for an MMORPG. Fight (or being) a big nasty demon in feudal Japan could be pretty cool.

I would love to see a Hitman reborn mmorpg. Or a Bible black one (you gain experience based upon how many times you have sex.)
cfatalison Dec. 31, 2009 at 9:50 a.m.
@gia: that's the only way to do it, it was playing tamagotchi with giant robots which have to kill each other to grow
 
if there's a rpg i want is the SRW rpg with ALL i mean ALL mecha in there
Nerxon Dec. 31, 2009 at 9:58 a.m.
I would love one based on cyborg 009

If Funi's dub team handles the translations for the english servers, I'm in.  Shin Chan is one of my favorite shows of all time, but the Funimation dub is so insanely different than the original Japanese scripts (what with the jokes about American politics, American pop culture, rape....wait what?), I doubt I'd care about any properties that were true to the "real" spirit of the show.

As long as it has "/dance" I'm in. That is a requirement to every MMO. You have to have "/dance."

It makes me sad that stuff like this gets green lit and yet there is still no Pokemon MMO. As much as i love the show i dont think $15/month is worth just running around doing /mandance.

Can I roleplay as a saleryman?

I like the Adult Swim version way better then the original

Cool that's good news.
Just a thought for a good Anime MMO I got bunch of ideas but the three things that really hit home. 
Tengo Tres Cosas
1.Cowboy Bebop
2.Ghost in the Shell
3.Gantz
 The last has some great potential. Cause its already a kind of game.
cfatalison Jan. 1, 2010 at 1:40 a.m.
@XChile: i agree on the gantz rpg, and there's already a game on it, on the ps2
XChileon Jan. 1, 2010 at 1:46 a.m.
@cfatalis:
It would would make one hell of an MMO. We can dream heh!
cfatalison Jan. 1, 2010 at 1:51 a.m.
@XChile: or we can search for the equivalent

 Not sure if it was an anime first or not but .Hack would work
