It’s true that we don’t often cover MMORPGs here at oprainfall. That said, we are fans of Bandai Namco, so when we saw they were working on one, we thought it something worth covering. The particular game that Bandai Namco is bringing to us today is MMORPG Bless Unleashed. The game is made with true fans of the genre in mind, so it should be slated for hardcore fandom. It will also utilize the Unreal 4 engine, meaning this will be a very pretty game. Best of all, Bless Unleashed was built with consoles in mind, so hopefully it attract a lot of friends when it first releases on XBox One.

To read more details about Bandai Namco’s first MMORPG, just read the full press release below.
