Earlier today, Korean publisher and developer Webzen held its Media Day event to showcase its upcoming lineup of games. Though not officially acknowledged, it seems that MU2 has been renamed to MU Legend, as featured in the official trailer below. No unique feature was introduced, which is kind of an anti-climax given the long wait. The first test, most probably an Alpha, will take place on 21 April.
