おしゃらんどファンテージ (Nicknamed "Fantage Japan" by Overseas Users) was the Japanese release for Fantage .

The site was closed down worldwide on December 15th, 2010.

Environment

Nexon Co.Ltd announced that they have signed a contract in Japanese and the US Fantage. Nexon agreed to put a browser game developed by the US Fantage called "ファンテージ" or "Fanteeji", this name was the title name for the Japanese Fantage. This browser game was developed to enjoy Fashion/being Fashionable, and to be able to chat with and make friends. You could also play mini games. Furthermore, the game was targeted to younger Japanese girls, so it had:

  • Chat Safety
  • An educational system.
  • Contents of safety for children.

In Fantage Japan, like the original Fantage, there were no Premium Members, because for the time it was up it was in Beta Stage. Limited items from the 2009 Fantage Wizard Party were Rare Items. The Ocean Turquoise Eyes for boys were also available for girls, replacing the "Cute Eyes". The site was more anime themed, and items from Old Beta items were included in the store catologs. The eyebrows were different from the ones from the original Fantage website, and the characters had more of an anime-style look. Signing up for the Japanese version required a Nexon Japan ID.

Closing

On November 3, 2010, Nexon Japan made an official announcement on their website stating that the website would be terminated the following month. Fantage Japan was closed worldwide on December 15, 2010. If someone tried to access the site they would get a sign from nexon regarding the websites termination. Later after closing many I.P. overseas adresses were blocked from accessing the site due to lots of people trying to access it. Though if you are using a japanese address, you will still only get the message regarding the closing of the website. There was no reason givin on why the site closed down, but it was most likely due to their contract with Nexon Co.Ltd ending.

Features

The Japanese release had some unique features that made it different from the original Fantage. Some of these features include:

  • No Premium Membership
  • Beta items could be purchased in Shops
  • A Magic box, which allowed users to get a few random exclusive items for Nexon Points, or 200 stars
  • Unicode symbols could be used, even in Usernames
  • Users could own more than one of the same item before original Fantage, but there was no place to get rid of or sell the duplicate items.

Trivia

  • Many think Fantage Japan still works in and around Japan, but this is false.
  • The weekly magazine "Comet" was not included in the Japanese release
  • Fantage Japan did not shut down because of the March 2011 Eathquake in Japan.
  • All users started out with 100 stars.
  • Fantage Japan was only open for about 308 days.
  • The site was often abused by Overseas users, some users would cuss without censorship because the site did not recognize them as cuss words. Many believe this is one of the reasons for Fantage Japans termination.
