Last week, we broke the news that Spacetime Studios was working on a new mobile MMO, and as of today’s announcement, it’s been confirmed. That mobile game is called Pocket Legends Adventures, an “homage” to what Spacetime says was the “world’s first 3D mobile MMO” — that’d be the ahead-of-its-time Pocket Legends, of course, which the studio followed up with Star Legends, Dark Legends, and Arcane Legends.
The new game’s not being called an MMO, as Spacetime seems to prefer multiplayer RPG, but it seems as much an MMO as the old game. It’s being described as “an epic, action-packed multiplayer role-playing game for iOS and Android platforms” that boasts “innovative real-time combat, unique skill-based advancement, endless character customization, and extensive single player campaigns” that take “the mobile role-playing experience to a whole new level.” The company’s also noting it “significantly advanced [its] proprietary game engine animation and rendering technologies” to improve the graphics.
“Social gameplay will be front-and-center in Pocket Legends Adventures, with Friends, Chat, and a wide range of exotic and humorous vanity items to apply to the avatars. Gamers can expect the same pick-up-and-play mayhem as the original series with several new multiplayer modes to enjoy with their friends. […] Game mechanics are casual but allow for deep character specialization, so players will be able to experiment with a wide variety of builds to fit their play style without sacrificing their favorite looks. Simple on the surface, with infinite character builds, Pocket Legends Adventures is a full-featured RPG distilled to fit today’s on-the-go lifestyle.”
Signups for closed beta testing round of the new title are live on the official site; the test is expected to begin on October 9th on both iOS and Android. We previously reported the game looked to be F2P with in-app purchases, servers, and character progression, and it won’t be crossplatform – it’s mobile only. Check out the new pics below!
