Watch the Characters and NPCs of Blade & Soul

on November 13, 2011 8:59 AM

Blade & Soul is a MMORPG still partly shrouded in mystery: a high budget project by NCSoft that will most likely come to the west in some form, but that never received a formal announcement for a localization.

Despite that, it created a growing niche fanbase on this side of the Pacific especially due to the lovely character design by Hyung Tae Kim, that is already causing some stir between those that feel that showing some digital skin is a bad, evil thing.

Full character creation still isn’t available during the second phase of the Korean closed beta, replaced by 18 preset characters per race/gender combination.

Past the cut you can see a movie showcasing all those presets, and a few NPCs at the end.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
