Korean developer XLGAMES, known worldwide for its MMORPG ArcheAge, today announced a new mobile game currently in development. The game will be based on the popular Korean light novel series, “The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor.” In publication since 2007, the novel tells the story of a teen who seek riches in the VR game known as Royal Road. There is a manhwa (manga) series as well.
Moonlight Sculptor will apparently be XLGAMES’ third mobile game being worked on right now, with the other 2 being ArcheAge Mobile (tentative name) and Braves. With mobile games currently dominating the market, followed by the recent rise of virtual reality games, it is not known if the studio will ever attempt a large-scale PC MMORPG like ArcheAge again in the near future.
