The first Closed Beta for Bless Online is scheduled to start later this month starting on February 20th and will last until the 23rd.

Japan is taking Blade & Soul to a whole new level and will be releasing an Anime series based on the game in partnership with Gonzo. What a marketing plot, seeing as how insanely popular the Chinese version is, this might attract a lot of people!

The Japanese version Core Masters will be kicking off on February 19th hosted by Gamepot. The game will most likely be IP block because that is how most Gamepot Japan games work. If you're okay with that, then lets move on to the next step! Don't forget to watch the new Japanese Core Masters trailer with Japanese voice overs below.
I remember the Japanese version of Blade & Soul was announced way back, but now it's officially confirmed with the new teaser page that just went live today found below. The URL of the site says 1.0 followed by the word secret. It's no secret that this game is Blade & Soul. Does this mean that the Japanese version will have a similar launch as the Chinese version? The more concerning issue is, will it have an IP block and will it be censor free like the Korean version. More details below!
If you have been following my Youtube and Facebook pages, then you should know that I have started uploading Tablet and Mobile games at my SteparuTV channel.

The best part is you can play all of the games that I post by following the tutorial guides.
