Kritika Online will be going through another update this month introducing a brand new area called The Witch's Mansion. A bit early for the whole Halloween spooky theme that the new areas has going on, but you can never complain with content updates as long as they keep on coming. NHN Hangame Korea are also hosting a couple friend invite events and reworking some of the areas and quests so that players can level up faster than usual.
The Korean version of ArcheAge Online will be transitioning into a free to play service starting next month. Now you're probably wondering what is the catch right? The catch is kind of tricky and may not be that big especially for players that just grind and level up all day, the F2P conversion for them should be like the best thing ever. But if you're the type of person that wants to actually play the game for the its' unique features, then you're most likely would want to subscribe to the game. Why is that? Because if you are not subscribe to the game your stamina/labor points will not regenerate and that castle won't build itself! More details below.
Hotdog Studio and Naddic Games are teaming up to release a mobile version of one of the hottest upcoming Anime MMORPG called Closers! Naddic Games went with Hotdog Studio because they are well known for creating side-scrolling action games.

The Mobile version of Closers is supposed to come out sometime this year, while the online version is scheduled to go live as late as next year.

Instead of creating separate articles for some of the new or not so new games that came out this week, I decided to just bundle it all up into one article for easier viewing. Anyway, most of the stuff featured below are Japanese apps and have a very Anime'ish theme to it so you might want to skip out on this batch, if you're not fond of that kind of stuff. Not sure if I will continue to do this but hey it's worth a try! Avatar Drive, Cute Girl Android Dice Battles, and Slider Girls.
