Fans of Asian martial arts fantasy films such as House of Flying Daggers and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon can rejoice as NCSoft has announced that the hugely popular action MMO Blade & Soul will be coming to Western markets.
The game was launched two months ago in Asia, and was developed by Team Bloodlust. The studio admits much of the game's style and action are based on those films, among others. Not only does the game feature dynamic martial arts action, the game's art direction and design is by renowned manga penner Hyung-Tae Kim, whom the studio hired to be lead artist.
