Atlus has revealed a first batch of information regarding Shin Megami Tensei Online Imagine. The PC-based title will differ from conventional MMORPGs, as the game will incorporate various gameplay modes, such as an RPG mode, a mission play mode and an RTS play mode. The game, which will take place in a Shin Megami Tensei-based world, is dubbed by Atlus as a communication-centered action RPG. Upon registering for the game, players will create their own characters by utilizing a unique avatar system. Contrary to many MMORPGs, where users have to team up with fellow users registered on the same server, in Shin Megami Tensei Online Imagine it will be possible to talk to and meet all other players and join any guild. Isao will be in charge of all network-related aspects of the game, such as setting up and administrating the network infrastructure, organizing game masters, etc. This weekend, Atlus will debut the game's first trailer at the Tokyo Character Show's Takara booth.
Shin Megami Tensei Online Imagine will be available in Japan sometime this year.
