Astonishia Online Closed Beta sign ups are now open! Astonishia is an upcoming MMORPG with beautiful cel shaded anime styled graphics. The best thing about Astonishia Online is the the original developers (Sonnori) decided to go with the old school system. Which means original RPG players will enjoy their turn based fighting with players online, at least that's what it looks like from the promotion video presented below. It's been awhile since a game like this came out, it may remind you a bit of Atlantica Online. Let's hope it is different though, since I wasn't much a fan of AO. Check out the full Closed Beta schedule below along with the awesome teaser video.

There is no exact date as to when it will be in Closed Beta phase, I wouldn't expect anything soon though. Last Online has not even entered Closed Beta phase in Korea.
