Black Desert Online Gets Ninja and Kunoichi Awakenings With New Update

on December 7, 2016 9:02 AM

Today Kakao Games updated its MMORPG Black Desert Online with the awakening weapons for its Ninja and Kunoichi classes.

If you’re not familiar with the game, awakening weapons are alternate weapons acquired at level 56, opening a completely new move set to complement the original one.

The Ninja’s awakening weapon is the Sura Katana, a set of six swords that makes Roronoa Zoro look like a noob, while the Kunoichi gets the  Sah Chakram, a giant Chakram that would send Xena to cry in a corner.

To celebrate, the publisher released a rather spectacular trailer showing the weapons in action. You can see it below.

Now the only awakenings missing, and presumably coming in two weeks, are those for Wizard and Witch, while the Korean servers are preparing to welcome a brand-new class, the sexy Dark Knight.

For the sake of full-disclosure, the author of this article just unlocked the 5,000 hours played achievement in Black Desert Online, because he’s crazy.
