Wemade Entertainment, which bought over Silkroad Online developer Joymax a few months ago, has revealed its list of games taking part in this year’s G*Star convention. Among the games include Changchun 2, the mysterious Project Goblin and the long-delayed title, NED: The New Era of Fantasy (sadly, no mention of the fabled Silkroad Online 2). NED has been in development for the past 5 years, with various screenshots (I am not sure if there was a Closed Beta) being shown throughout the development process. However, the game took a drastic change in design style between the 2008 (picture below, left) to end 2009 period (picture below, right), where the original 3D cutesy style was changed into that of a more serious one.
How will NED: The New Era of Fantasy be presented at this year’s G*Star, with only the teaser poster below revealed? Developed using the famed Cry Engine, it better be good!
Next up will be Changchun 2, an action MMORPG based on the rather overused Romance of the Three Kingdoms. While the prequel, with an English version available, lacked magic casting characters and stayed away from the fantasy side of things, Changchun 2 has done otherwise. With a storyline involving demon hordes and various hideous monsters from the depths of hell and finally, magic wielding characters, it is aiming for its 2nd Closed Beta in Korea on November 11th.
Finally (2 of the other games are for the iPad and iPhone), there will be the official reveal for the company’s secret, mysterious MMORPG, Project Goblin (rumored to be a 3D side-scroller). Stay tuned for more info!
