Project NT – Nexon nabs publishing rights for the West

It seems Nexon isn’t going to wait until G*Star before making any major announcements. Or does the company has too many, hence the early date for this?

Project NT signing ceremony

No matter, Nexon has announced the contract signing for Project NT, developed by Thingsoft, for Korea, Japan, North America and Europe. Note: All screenshots are from last year.

Project NT is a MMORPG using techniques cartoon rendering and cell animation, which gives it a heavy Japanese anime feel. Developed using a self-developed engine and announced last year (how did I miss it?), Project NT has no classes or skill trainers. Skills are dropped randomly by mobs, and each mob represent 1 skill.

The best part? Each time players use a skill, the affiliated monster will appear as part of the animation, like a summon. For example, if you cast the “Fireball” skill, a dragon may appear and shoot a fireball from its mouth before disappearing. Sounds like a quick Pokemon match~

There is a feature which is currently little on details, and it is the ability for players to create their own content. For now, only videos can be made using in-game assets, pretty much like Valve’s movie maker software starring the Team Fortress gang.

    • It varies really. Mabinogi’s cash shop is fine, Maple’s is terrible and Vin’s has a lot of overpriced junk but you can play fine without it. Depends on who they have directing it really.

  1. I love cell-animation MMO’s!

    @Venant: I don’t think you play Mabinogi because the cash shop is terrible. It’s all about spamming gachas in the hopes of getting an item you want.

  2. I love cell-shaded MMO’s! Also @Venant: Mabinogi’s cash shop is terrible… I am not sure what you’re talking about. It’s all based on spamming gachas and hoping you get something you want.

    • If you Fashionogi. Armor doesn’t matter much in Mabi, get Dustin for 1m and you’re set. If you want the latest useless piece of fancy clothing then go ahead and waste your money on gambling, I stopped buying gachas after the first 3 or so and I did just fine with in-game gold.

    • I will grant that pets are something of a necessity, but given that they’re permanent unlike a lot of BS in other games, it’s not that big an investment in the long run. Unless of course you’re one of the people who buys 50 of them, but if you’re buying 50 pets and spamming gambling items, your money problems go farther than the cash shop.

  3. Anyone has a video of this game. I cant seem to find it anywhere. Looks interesting. Like to see it in motion.

  4. Ugh Nexon. I’ve wanted to try Mabinogi for years but it’s US only and never got a global release. This will probably happen to this one as well 🙁 I know there are proxies, but it’s not worth it with the lag.

  5. Piichan you probably wont read this but Nexon did a Eu release for mabinogi.However,they were horrible,game never got any announcement or promotion so only a very few knew they could play it,but that the kind part.The worst part about nexon is how they never cared about players whom played at mabinogi EU and never made any update release for years,lot of people were leaving in fact because of the lack of works from nexon about mabinogi.Some people even succesfully hacked mabinogi and deleted some randoms players characters,wich nexon never compensated.In the end,after almost 2 years of no activities from nexon where lot of players had giver them a lot of cash(probably around 500.000$ when never working for a game isnt that nice?)they bring up the décision to end up mabinogi EU without any justification,and obsviously,they never compensated others players(giving you 10k nx when you spend 10 times more is not compensation).In the end,Nexon are faggot and asshole who dont care about their players and Im sad the one of the best mmo ever like NT project is edited by them(because they could ruin it as they ruined mabinogi).
