Over in Japan, NHN PlayArt (Hangame) held an event recently for its new MMORPG, Soul Worker. Developed by Korean studio Lion Games, a number of seiyū for various in-game characters were introduced. GARNiDELiA, who sang the second opening for “The Irregular at Magic High School”, will be performing the game’s theme song. A new character, Howling Guitar was revealed as well.
Wielding an unlikely guitar as the weapon of choice (I think it was a scythe in the early version), Howling Guitar is a female character who will be added during Open Beta. A melee and short-range combatant, notice that her skill graphics include those of spirits, giving off a dark mage vibe. Lucky players who were invited to the event managed to give Howling Guitar a try at the demo stations.
Closed Beta in Japan begins from 20 August to 23 August, with registration now begun for the limited 15,000 spots available. A short animated introduction trailer also teased the remaining two characters, with a screen-cap seen below. Many more videos and information can be seen and read from my previous posts on Soul Worker. Unfortunately, no English server is announced at the moment.
