Webzen reveals new MMOs Light Fall, The Beast; teases MU Legend’s closed beta

Webzen has seven games on the way for South Korean players, which very often means a trickle-over for us across the pond.

MU Legend (MU2) anchors a new video showcasing all of those games; it’s the hack-n-slash prequel to MU Online, a popular first-gen MMO from the early aughts, and it’s kicking off closed beta on April 21st.

Webzen is also working on a mobile version of Continent of the Ninth Seal, a new pet-centric “mobile action MORPG” called The Beast (due in May), and a PC MMORPG called Light Fall, which looks pretty sci-fi to us. More when we know it!

Jukebox Heroes: Ragnarok 2’s soundtrack

Game soundtracks like this are the reason why I scrounge outside of the well-known MMOs for hidden gems. As I’ve often said before, the quality (or popularity) of a game and its soundtrack aren’t always equal. So while Ragnarok 2 might not be the MMO on everyone’s lips these days, its soundtrack is certainly worthy of being poured into our ears.

While the original Ragnarok Online’s score is a take-it-or-leave-it proposition for me, the sequel is a treasure trove of delightful tracks and energetic melodies. Ragnarok 2’s score was composed by Yoko Kanno, who is well-known for her works in many anime projects including Ghost in the Shell and Cowboy Bebop. She’s also had her fingers in Continent of the Ninth (C9), which now puts that game’s score on my to-listen list.

Whether you’ve played Ragnarok 2 or not, I hope you join me for this brief tour through its musical highlights!
