It’s been a year since NEON Studio’s Nexon-published mobile MMO Spiritwish hit closed beta in South Korea, and now it’s officially landing here, having somehow escaped the fate that befell some of Nexon’s other games and studios. Today’s launch on iOS and Android is a full, global release; the devs are calling it a “retro” MMORPG.
“In Spiritwish, players are invited to command a tight-knit squad of heroes as they follow in the footsteps of the Three Gods for control of the ancient relics that protect their civilization,” Nexon says. “Spiritwish boasts an unprecedented roster of features to seamlessly deliver a unique MMORPG experience to mobile players.” Expect to control a three-person party of toons through online co-op raiding, daily dungeons, and a “one-handed mode” that’s meant to make the game easy to play while chatting.
If the dreamy-cute anime motif looks a smidge familiar, it’s because this is the same development studio behind Tree of Savior and Ragnarok.
