The PC-based ‘Divine Souls‘ surpasses the simple action of MMORPG and demonstrates a sense of console games much similar to ‘Tekken’. In particular, the game’s support of gaming pads make it resemble console games even more as its support of Kinect. Describing Divine Souls, the firm writes:
the game’s support of gaming pads make it resemble console games even more, and is scheduled to support Kinect, a new control system of Xbox360.

Divine Souls Kinect
Based on an exotic atmosphere by harmonising the steam-punk fantasy background with various characters, rare for an online game, ‘Divine Soul’ is catchy with its addition of various systems that make the most out of the strengths of MMORPG. ‘Divine Souls‘ action is unique in that it is optimized for competition and the combat system is greatly differentiated from other games.
The firm’s Jason Lim said:
Kinect will soon be available as a new controller so it might be supported like joy pad mode in the future. Currently in Microsoft, there are many game companies that are trying to apply for this system.
Discussing the new combat mode, Lim said:
We added PvP combat mode among the contents in online games. In fact, we do believe that this certainly has an advantage as an online game since many players can fight in a tournament and global tournament will be also available.
