SoulWorker was originally developed in South Korea by LionGames and published in Japan first. It's now finally launching in South Korea published by Smilegate next week on January 18th. It looks like the Korean version is almost up-to-date with the Japanese version, excluding the latest two playable characters. The Korean version also offers newly added content that's not available in the Japanese version yet such as air dash, unique my room features, bike mount, planned ranking up characters (similar to Closers agent system?), and more. Check out the Korean Open Beta trailer below along with my latest Japanese version gameplay.
Greetings! I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm still alive! I was gone during my extended holiday mostly gaming and sleeping. The cold weather makes me super tired so I went off and hibernated for awhile. I've got nothing special planned for this year so expect more of the same random news and stuff! I'm probably going to start doing more blog related gaming posts. I'm looking forward to testing out new games and going on new adventures this year, but as many of you know, the Eastern Online PC game industry has been at a slow crawl, while the mobile gaming market is still blooming and milking players.
Hero Entertainment's Phantom Blade 2 came out last month for the iOS and it seems like there is an Android version now, so I went ahead and downloaded it! You start the game off with one main character and you'll get two more characters by the time you finish the tutorial. I'm digging the whole artwork and style of the game so far. The super flashy combo combat system is nice and it seems to have some kind of super saiyan mode or perhaps that was just for the starting prologue, lol. I might test it a bit more to see if I can unlock the other characters.
The Tree of Savior clone from China titled Tale of the Lost City Online is going to be coming out in South Korea published by Nextmove and branded as Lost Tale. There is a big controversy revolving around this title and the current localization due to the stolen assets from Tree of Savior. If you've played a lot of TOS in the past like me, you will notice a lot of similarities! I've posted a gameplay video of the Chinese adventures below. I might try out the Korean version just for kicks, lol.
Neople and Nexon just released gameplay trailers showing off all twelve playable jobs for Dungeon & Fighter: Spirit. As I wrote a few days ago, the Pre-Registration has begun, but only available to Korean users. However, once the game is released, you should be able to play the game just fine, as long as you don't mind it being in Korean. There should be a couple more teasers after this, I wonder if the game is coming out soon, like this month or the next? They sure are building hype momentum!
Closers Online still continues to grow strong with another new playable female character added just today. Violet the Valkyrie is the daughter of one of the co-founders of Vulture and she's out on an important mission. She's also got a pretty cool handy butler that randomly pops up during certain skills and actions. I would like to see some more synchronize attacks with her butler later on or perhaps a complexed tag-team dual character mode.
The Korean version of Black Desert Online is about to receive a large update tomorrow unlocking the Kamasilvia region. (Edit Update) The new area is located south of Calpheon. The new region looks pretty good, blooming with life and giving off a very nature like surroundings befitting the whole Elfish theme. This update also includes new NPC's, monsters, and what looks like some new mini-bosses! I'm looking forward to checking out the new region tomorrow, I might do a couple tour videos, stay tuned!
For the first time ever, Figureheads is going to receive new PvE co-op modes introducing large raid bosses. Players must hunt down these new bosses within a specific time limit. Just like the PvP modes, everyone must aim for the weak spots and core. As easy as it sounds, the core isn't always visible and players must work together and take down the enemy shield to fully expose the core.
Dungeon & Fighter: Spirit just received a new website revamped revealing new information on the upcoming job advancements along with Pre-Registrations for Korean gamers. As usual, most KR games will require Korean phone to Pre-Register. Neople and Nexon are planning on releasing more trailers in the weeks to come along, so check back often! Gameplay and teasers added below.
