The nifty thing about famous IPs partly in the public domain is all the variations different authors can create with it. Case in point: Oz: Broken Kingdom, Nexon’s new mobile ARPG, which is out today on iOS and Android and is based, more or less, on L. Frank Baum’s masterpiece Oz series. However, you won’t be playing Dorothy:
“Oz: Broken Kingdom includes a deep strategic turn-based combat system, character customization and evolution, as well as over 100 epic abilities. Players command the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Lion and new heroine Ophelia Shen as they travel across the dangerous land of Oz to places like the Munchkin countryside and Glinda’s Castle in the story mode or battle against other players in real-time in the Arena of Oz.”
It’s not an MMO, note, but the aforementioned arena mode is multiplayer enough to allow players to join guilds, team up, and PvP their way up a leaderboard. Check out the trailer below.
