Trion’s new mystery game looks like Devilian Online

Trion Worlds decided to engage in a bit of image-based teasing yesterday, leaving players with nothing more than an image an a tagline. Some eagle-eyed fans have noted that the teaser image does seem to have a counterpart, though: The Ominous Devil Guy from the teaser image is nearly identical to one of the story silhouettes for Korean-born game Devilian Online.

Could Trion be bringing the game over to these shores? It’s an action RPG by Ginno Games akin to the Diablo franchise, which would represent something that isn’t currently in Trion’s western stable. Or it could be something else entirely, like a stunning coincidence (there are only so many ways to sketch an ominous demonic dude in silhouette, after all). Check out the suspected game’s official site and draw your own conclusions.

If you’re convinced, then there’s plenty to read up on and tons of vids to peruse, like these from MMO Culture:

Trion localizing and publishing a Korean game? What could possibly go wrong!?

Sadly, the chicken suit is actually the single interesting thing I’ve seen from Devilian yet. (it doesn’t make me want to play it… I just found it interesting)

I enjoyed Rift greatly (except the most recent expansion) but I don’t think the game has been the same since the F2P switch.  That said, they *built* Rift but these other things they are pretty much just publishers with a glorified title. I gave AA a shot since I had friends who swore this was the game of the decade. I really couldn’t give it more than a couple of weeks before all I was doing was logging in to burn labor points. And then my month ended and I was actually relieved.  I believe Trion could actually dig themselves out of this mess that they have made but they’re going to need to put together something new. Not repackage some other country’s crap. If they are indeed going to push Devilian Online out, I believe they have put the final nail in their own coffin.

Dystopiq Necromonger this is a lie. In korea, you spend 20 dollars and get your mount/costume of the month. In our version, you spend 200 dollars+ to gamble for said item. Archeage is p2w in all versions, but ours is the worst. Trion worlds has actively edited out items and recipes in our version, or increased their crafting cost so that they could not compete with cash shop offerings. 
The korean version only seems more p2w because it has a larger store, but the only reason it has a larger store is because trion cycles items out of the cash shop to force a ‘limited time purchase’ mentality with its player base. Koreans, on the other hand, keep items in the shop forever because why the fuck not.

Llokki I guess they actually did – they make a fortune from the whales and abandoning ethics and lying to players hasn’t harmed their profits.

Jack Pipsam McSleaz you mean minecraft: archeage edition. There’s so many hilarious features they copy and pasted from that game, and many of them came about in the same time frame as they were about to be patched into aa. Trion world’s doesnt just rip off their customers, but actively skims from their business partners as well.
