The Japanese version of SoulWorker Online recently started selling special limited time Valentine's Day outfits for the female characters of the game. Equipping an outfit will enable the player to use cute special emotes shown in the trailer below. Would you like some chocolate senpai!? Not much love for the male characters of the game this time around. Oh, it looks like the Korean version is also getting the outfits. English version? I don't know! Still waiting.
Nuri Work's Futuristic Sci-Fi PC MMORPG Wild Buster is finally going to launch in South Korea starting next month on March 2nd. The game has been in development for quite some time now, I remember making a post on it awhile back in 2013, lol. Anyhow, the quarter-view MMORPG offers action controls featuring hack & slash melee and some hardcore shoot'em up gameplay. Wild Buster also provides players with a fast-paced leveling system. I should probably test this game out at least once after skipping out the previous betas.
Nexon Korea just started recruiting Closed Beta testers for the Dragon Nest 2 Legend! The upcoming beta is only available for the Android device and Korean users as it requires a cell phone. The Closed Beta schedule hasn't been announced just yet. I've been hearing rumors mentioning that Dragon Nest II is supposed to have improved graphics and gameplay compared to last year's teaser trailer. I'm hoping there is a way for Foreigners who doesn't have Korean contacts to try out the game via APK share.
Tokyo Ghoul is going to get another smartphone game called Tokyo Ghoul :re Invoke which is a casual turn-based RPG with a tap battle combat system. Featuring special limit break attacks from the original Anime and some form of multiplayer! For some reason, I'm getting Destiny Child for Kakao vibe from this game. Anyway, I'll probably check this one out since I did enjoy watching the Anime. If you're interested in trying out the other mobile version, it's called Tokyo Ghoul Carnaval, it's not too shabby.
NCSoft revealed a new gameplay video for Lineage M an open world mobile version of the first Lineage title. Featuring nostalgic classical gameplay, world bosses, grinding, transformation, and more. The Lineage scene in South Korea is still going strong with so many Lineage IP's constantly being pumped out. I'll probably skip out on this one as I've already had my hardcore dose of Lineage in Netmarble's L2Revolution, had nothing to do after reaching the level 120 cap.
Marchen Busters also known as Fairy Tale Busters just launched Open Beta in Japan. Having no new Eastern PC game to test this month, I decided to try the new kawaii Anime third person shooter. The game is pretty amusing so far, especially the awkward death animations. Just some random game to play to kill time and for laughs, the game feels like it's missing some stuff like voices. I haven't tried the PvE content yet, but I think you can farm gold there to buy outfits and guns for your character? Have a look at PvP gameplay below.
I was looking through a list of upcoming games and noticed that the God Eater Pre-Registration is still going on. I'm speculating that the game may come out this month because of the last Pre-Registration milestone reward, a tasty looking Chocolate Great Sword. The weapon hints a Valentine theme, doesn't it? Just a thought! Anyway, you can Pre-Register for the game if you're interested in trying it out in the future using e-mail or Twitter. I've posted my gameplay video from the previous test in case you're wondering how it plays on your mobile device or PC emulator.
Nexon Korea and Naddic Games just released the first 1080p HD version of the Closers Online Anime. Although it doesn't have any English subtitles, you can probably find some fansubs floating around Youtube in a few days or just watch the SD version with English subs already available. Lee Seha so OP! I'm curious as to how fast the Anime catches up to the game as it's constantly being updated with new content every month.
A new event in Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia just started today featuring Squall from Final Fantasy VIII. This event is really good for both new and current players because of the rewards. You can get Squall for free along with an OP 5-star armor for him, tons of gems for newbie rolls, Gacha tickets, and more.
