NetMarble has announced that they will be bringing their popular mobile RPG called Raven to the Western markets. Ranked as Korea’s #1 mobile RPG, Raven will be getting a new name for its release over here in the West, and will now be known officially as Evilbane when it arrives.
This is part of NetMarble’s plan to bring more of their catalog of mobile games to the West, steadily increasing the company’s worldwide audience since they already have a lot of success in the East. Evilbane, for those of you not familiar with it, is an Action-RPG with full 3D visuals, lots of fast-paced action, and plenty of content as it has been in development for over 3 years.
Players will get to choose from one of three playable class/race combinations: A balanced Human, fast-attacking Elf assassin or Vango Berserker. From there players will have five different game modes to partake in. There is the epic Scenario mode, a 150-stage Adventure mode, Raid mode, 1v1 Arena mode and Guild multiplayer matches. Each race/class also have thousands of armor, weapons, and items available to find and use.
Raven launched in Korea back in March of this year and has been in the #1 spot since a few days after its release. In Korea alone Raven already boasts some impressive numbers, with 1 million DAU (Daily Active Users) and 5 million downloads. NetMarble will publish the game themselves, while their two studios (NetmarbleST and NetmarbleNeo) work on getting it ready for its release in the West.
When Evilbane arrives for mobile devices in the West, it will be free-to-play with optional IAPs available. Unfortunately there is no specific release date as of yet, only that it will be arriving later this year. You can check out the game’s official website for additional trailers and other visual goodies. As more details are released, we will post an update.
