Another popular PC-based MMORPG will be getting a spin-off game for mobile devices called Blade & Soul: Hongmoon Rising. The original game, called Blade & Soul, was published by NCSoft and they will also be the publishers for this new title as well. Interestingly enough, this new game won’t just be for mobile, but for PC as well. This would be the second spin-off for mobile devices for this franchise.
Hongmoon Rising will actually be a prequel to the original PC game. It will be an Action-RPG with 3D visuals, and it will contain multiplayer mechanics. What give this away is the chatbox in the bottom left of the screen. However, as for it being a full MMORPG, that we don’t know just yet but it is a very good possibility. The announcement trailer doesn’t show any party-based gameplay though.
The trailer, however, does show us the combat, which looks pretty fast-paced, and we do get to see a boss fight as well. The visuals look pretty damn good too. Unfortunately that is all that we know at this time about this new Blade & Soul game. One thing of note, VR support is being considered for this title as well, which would be really cool. Once we learn more details, we will post an update.
