Japanese developer gumi recently revealed its latest mobile game, Serencia Saga: Dragon Nest. Based on the popular IP from Korean studio Eyedentity Games, this mobile action RPG is developed by Primus Inc, a subsidiary unit under gumi led by a former producer of the PC version of Dragon Nest Japan. Pre-registration is now on in Japan, with a launch expected this summer.
Serencia Saga: Dragon Nest features 4 familiar playable characters at the start: Warrior, Archer, Cleric, and Sorceress. With a brand new storyline, players step foot on the world of Serencia as a “Knight of the Seal Dragon”, going through trials set by a goddess. The game can be played in either landscape mode or portrait mode according to the player’s preference, switching at any time!
In Serencia Saga: Dragon Nest, the core gameplay is still focused around instanced dungeons, although players can now focus on destroying certain body parts first for the big bosses. Awesome! There is co-op gameplay as well with up to 4 players in a party. Similar to the PC version, there are tons of weapon, armor, and costumes to craft and collect to customize how characters look.
Serencia Saga: Dragon Nest also boasts an all-star voice cast for the 4 classes, with Yūki Kaji (Eren in Attack on Titan) voicing the Warrior, Kana Asumi (Popura in Working!!) voicing the Archer, Daisuke Namikawa (Jellal in Fairy Tail) voicing the Cleric, and Ami Koshimizu (Ryuko in Kill la Kill) voicing the Sorceress. J-pop star Koda Kumi is singing the game’s theme song, LIT!
