Taikodom zooming toward closed beta

A couple of years ago at at E3, we got our first look at the Brazilian sci-fi space shooter, Taikodom, which had been developed by Hoplon Infotainment. What we saw there definitely caught our eye. GamersFirst network had seen the potential in this fast-paced dogfighter as well, and were working on an English localization, as well as improvements to the game to make it the free-form twitch-based space combat game many have been asking for. At this last E3, we had the chance to spend some time with the updated version, which once again had us dreaming of huge space battles.

As of this morning, emails are going out, offering closed beta signups on the US Taikodom site. Forum posts indicate that closed beta may be a few weeks off, and no official dates have been released as yet. Still, if you've been curious about the game, are willing to hunt bugs and provide feedback, then now is the time to head over to the GamersFirst site and get signed up. If, instead, you'd prefer something a little more polished -- where your characters won't get nuked repeatedly -- then you may want to wait until open beta rolls around.
