Soak up these Moonlight Blade videos from G-Star

Wait, which one is Moonlight Blade? Oh, it’s the one where gravity doesn’t appear to exist for special individuals who flit through the air like martial arts Mary Poppins. Shouldn’t be hard to remember.

As Moonlight Blade continues to wind its way through the beta testing process in Korea, all we in the west can do is wait and watch some of the gameplay videos in envy. It’s a good-looking game, although that comes standard with Korean development, right?

Steparu snagged a few videos from Moonlight Blade’s recent appearance at G-Star, including more flying moves, character creation, and some fashion. Check it out below!

Imagine if a decent western studio would produce a Wuxia MMO with this level of visual quality and animation. Would be an instant hit, assuming it’s not bogged down with PTW schemes, lock boxes, crappy gameplay/systems, or some other crap that ruins games now days.

Sadly, ports of Korean games to the west are always fraught with issues. Be it localization, story just not translating well across languages, or net code (Korean games are made with their internet latency & speeds in mind, not the west’s). Almost all Korean ports just end up being crap.

I’ve been drooling over this game’s visuals since I first saw them (which was a long time ago.. years?), but sadly, the visuals are the only thing about it that I find even remotely interesting.

It’s been argued, that GW2 has maybe the best mounts, but they clearly got beaten by Moonlight Blade in terms of gliding! (If not by B&S and Age of Wulin/Wushu beforehand!)

That half-loop on the raven, while the camera still keeps its position… I’m in awe! o.O

In fact, the devs responsible for it, clearly realized how much of an extra value you can draw, if there is a symbiotic and in sync relationship between camera and animation, being 2 essential parts of one perfect choreography! /respect

Would like to see this one come West, but we all know some awful publisher will get it and drive it into the ground like almost every other great Eastern MMO that comes West. Game looks gorgeous and the gameplay looks equally as good.

Tencent confirmed at the start of the year that it would be coming west at some point

Whoever did the character and animation art direction in this game should get an award. The animations are breathtaking, the characters are beautiful without being hyper sexualized and some of the scenes like the river lantern releasing in the second video are moving.

I hope this game makes to the west. I probably wouldn’t even want the game dubbed, just western languages with sub-titles in the cut scenes that have Chinese voice acting. It’d be like watching a good Chinese film.

Totally agree! Its animation is just awesome!

Do want! Ermahgerd real Wuxia. Blade and Soul is a blasphemy(as a Wuxia game). This is a real chinese product with real chinese aesthetic and design sensibilities and yes, this is meant positively(and hopefully won’t turn into the negative when the western cash shop is finalized).

I hope they stick to the plan to release it here and I hope they try to understand and adjust to our market. Snail Games showed how you ruin a great game(nigh-perfect sandbox) with bad monetization(which ultimately influenced gameplay as well).

To be fair B&S never really claimed to be a wuxia game. It is inspired by some elements of wushu and martial arts heavily, but it is not particularly a Wuxia game.

I don’t really see anything I disagree with there. Some of the classes, and the world itself, might be a bit too all-over-the-place fantastic to fit a “standard” (term used very loosely) Wuxia world, but the story is every bit the part.
