Onigiri Making the Console Plunge in Early 2015
If you've wanted to take a look at Onigiri, the free-to-play MMORPG by Cyberstep, in the West, you've had to use some online guides in the past to get the game up and running...unless of course you can read Japanese. That will all change early in 2015 when Onigiri makes the move to PS4 and XBox One according to an exclusive interview with Windows Central.
Onigiri is actually already available on the XBox One in Japan, but this move will now bring an English version of the game to both next gen consoles. This console version is also slated for release in Europe, but the timing between the European and North American versions of the game could differ.
While we don't know a ton of information just yet, the interview does provide a few snipets of what we can expect. First, Onigiri will not be cross platform. If you play on the PC now, there will be no migration from PC to console upon release. Second, Onigiri will be available on both XBox One and PS4 but not necessarily at the same time. One console version could release before the other. Finally, "random luck" items are planned to be available in the cash shop for the English version just as they are in their Japanese counterpart.
If you've liked the gameplay but missed out on the story of Onigiri due to the language barrier, this has got to be good news for you. Have any of you played Onigiri at all? Tell us about it!
