The visually impressive, Oriental martial-arts based MMORPG Blade and Soul has been confirmed to be in development for current generation consoles by NCSoft CEO Kim Taek Jin.
The console versions of Blade and Soul and Guild Wars 2 are currently undergoing smooth development, but this doesn’t mean the company already has related selling plans. Mr. Kim confirmed that, Blade and Soul and Guild Wars 2 would be commercially served in the year 2011 and the former would start its closed beta in the first half of 2010.
I’ve had my eye on this game since it was announced for the PC. For those unaware, Blade & Soul is being developed by the team behind Lineage II and will feature gameplay that borrows elements from fighting games, platformers, with a few puzzles mixed in as well.
Closed beta for Blade & Soul is scheduled to begin later this year for the PC.
