Blade & Soul Possibly Being Localized in 2014

2014 may seem like a long ways away, but think about it: 2013 has too many MMOs coming out anyway.

Blade & Soul, NCSoft’s gorgeous action MMO, has woefully only seen a release in Korea and China so far — but that may not be the case within the next year! During an interview with art director (and one of my favorite artists) Hyung-Tae Kim, Cute in Korea‘s Nara discovered the news we all want to hear: Blade & Soul is being localized.

Hyung-Tae Kim states they are hoping to release the English version of the game sometime next year. It may seem like a long time to wait, but we’ve been made to wait much longer on the release of other titles. We have an MMO-packed 2013, with the release of several big-name games on the table. It may be better for we sad MMO addicts to get Blade & Soul next year.

Action! Adventure! Quest grinding!

If you’ve simply got a taste for action MMOs right now, there are a few titles out in North America right now you could dip your feet into: TERA, Guild Wars 2, RaiderZ, Vindictus, and Dragon’s Prophet (CB) all have solid action combat systems; though I would argue on the action “feel” of GW2‘s and staunchly remind you that Dragon’s Prophet‘s closed beta is still very much in development.

If you’ve yet to see any footage of Blade & Soul, take a look below at some of MMORPG ninja Steparu‘s footage from the Korean servers.
