Sammy and From Networks, a joint venture of From Software and Dwango, have announced a new 3D MMORPG for the PC platform titled Stragarden. From Networks will serve as the game's developer, while the publishing responsibilities will lay with Sammy. Apart from Japan, Sammy plans to release the game in various Asian markets including mainland China and Taiwan. Therefore plans to sublicense the game to a big Taiwanese online publisher are already in the making. So far little is known about the title's actual content, though. It was only revealed that its world will be in full 3D and themed after medieval Europe.
Stragarden will be available in Japan sometime in summer 2004.
