Netmarble Korea announced that the upcoming smartphone game based on the MMORPG Blade & Soul, Blade & Soul Revolution, will launch in South Korea this December.
The announcement was made during a press event, where they also launched pre-registration for the Korean version. Here’s a teaser trailer:
And a G-Star 2018 trailer:
Blade & Soul Revolution is being developed by Cherry Bugs, a subsidiary of Netmarble Korea, with the goal of bringing the charm of Blade & Soul on PC to smartphones through a “reinterpretation.”
The controls are simplified for smartphone, but it offers high-end action with skills such as “Qinggong” that let you go superhuman, cooperative skills, and so on. The same voices from the PC version will be used in Blade & Soul Revolution, and there are over 150 cinematic movies that were put together in order to offer a movie-like experience for the players.
After listening to feedback from G-Star 2017 attendees last year, they’ve added a male Lyn as one of the playable characters. There are currently six different playable characters with a male/female Jin, male/female Lyn, a female Yun, and a male Gon. The developers are also working on adding the appearance customization functions from the PC version.
As far as gameplay details, Netmarble shared that it’ll be a massive PvP battle where you can have teams of up to 500 vs. 500. These massive PvP battles won’t be just about players hitting each other head on, but there are features such as bombs and such that can be used to strategize.
Here are some new screenshots from the event:
