Published by Tencent Games exclusively in China, Blade & Soul Mobile will enter the non-data wipe phase on 10 March. Said to be the first mobile game officially developed by NCsoft, Blade & Soul Mobile is a battle card game featuring both 2D art and 3D models, with the battles especially flashy. The characters found in the PC version of Blade & Soul are “minified” into rather cute ones here.
According to the official information, the 2D art pieces are drawn by a total of 51 artists from China, Japan, and South Korea, with 12 different art styles incorporated into the game. There are over 60 characters, 79 different attack combos, “Live 2D” technology, and more. Netmarble is also developing a new Blade & Soul mobile game. There is no word if either will make it to the English market.
