Baruson Creative, which appears to be the new name for Studio 9, has a new Nintendo DS game in development. Iron Master is an original title with a mix of RPG elements, crafting, and multi-character scenarios. OK, details about Iron Master are still sketchy mainly because the game is still in development
Baruson Creative plans to release Iron Master in the first half of 2009, but the interesting news is it wont just be for South Korea. They have plans to release Iron Master in Japan, North America, and Europe around the same time too. No publisher has been announced, but one possibility is Ubisoft. Baruson is taking care of one of Ubisoft’s Imagine Ice Skating games and localizing it for Korea. Atlus is another, although distant, possibility. Baruson, under the Studio 9 label, released Rondo of Swords which was developed by Success. If their ties with Success are strong Success could publish Iron Master in Japan and since Atlus mostly takes care of Success’ games in North America they might pick the title up. Anyway, South Korea is gearing up international Nintendo DS development next year with Iron Master and Blueside’s Princess and Knight.
