10

Don’t let the Roman numeral two fool you into thinking that this is a sequel. Dragon Nest II: Legend is actually a prequel to the currently operating MMO, taking place 500 years in the past.

Want another surprise? Dragon Nest II will be a mobile title, adding another future contender in the growing field of tablet and smartphone MMOs. The game is being developed in Korea by ActozSoft and EyeDentity Games and is looking to release globally at an undetermined date.

You can watch the announcement trailer for Dragon Nest II after the jump!

Greaterdivinity  Darkness Reborn, Yesterday, Vector, in fact I feel like tablet games and point and click adventure games are an amazing fit. Not everything works, more actiony game have to work harder but RPGs in general but especially tacticals ones fare best. In order to find good games get a look see through some best of lists and then find games that feel good to you. I agree its much harder to find a good fit but if you can sift through the junk, the diamonds are out there.

I’m surprised they’re releasing so many dragon nest games. If I’m not wrong, the game came dangerously close to the chopping block, at least in NA.

PizzaDoh I actually think this is a convoluted mess.  The three other titles with the announcement are very much the same aesthetics but the bigger question is: why the hell there needs to be three separate games?  Quantity over quality is hardly a sustaining strategy to grow a franchise.

PizzaDoh Strange that they’ve changed the art style. Mobile isn’t surprising though, if they plan to keep updating DN1.

Knight of Hearts Oh, I agree that mobile games are improving over the years. But my biggest gripe is just trying to play any of them without covering half the bloody screen with my hands (even on a Galaxy S4 which is reasonably big) or constantly needing to reposition my hands.
Even if 1% are good, I’m still struggling to find them (and I make it a point to try to find some decent ones). I’ve found some tolerable ones that are good for a few minutes at a time when there’s literally nothing else to play/watch, but that’s about it : /

Greaterdivinity I tend to agree but tablet games in particular but mobile games in general are really stepping up on the quality level. Given that they had such abysmal quality control before ,the rise in quality of mobile games of late will surprise people. Because mobile games launch in an order of magnitude more than console and PC games combined, even if just 1% of all mobile games are of good quality its still a large library of games.

Greaterdivinity To be fair, releasing a sequel to an MMO is rarely a good idea, because it tends to cannibalize the playerbase for the existing game (which means losing out on potential revenue).
By releasing it on a different platform, they can avoid that. I would guess that Dragon Nest II isn’t supposed to be an iterative improvement over its predecessor; it’s probably aimed at attracting a new and different group of players.

What happened?

I loved the simplistic art-style for DN, it felt like the focus was gameplay, not spamming the screen with lens flairs and glows. This looks like a generic mmo now…and mobile?

No thanks :(
