Korean game inspired 2014 TV anime

The official website for video game publisher NCSoft announced on Wednesday that the Korean martial arts fantasy MMORPG Blade & Soul is coming to North America and Europe this winter. The company also streamed a promotional video.

NCSoft describes the game:

Blade & Soul is an action-based martial arts MMORPG set in a fantastical Ancient Eastern world, with a story of revenge and vengeance that follows traditional wuxia literature. You'll be battling enemies with a strategic- and combo-based combat style and channeling your inner chi to perform supernatural Windwalking abilities such as gliding through the air, running across water, and sprinting up walls.

The game lets players make a character from four different races: the tall and strong Gon, the curious and wise Jin, the beautiful and graceful Kun, and the cute and spiritually-tuned Lyn. The player can then train their character to become an Assassin, a Blademaster, a Destroyer, a Force Master, a Kung Fu Master, or a Summoner.

The game inspired an anime which aired on Japan's TBS and BS-TBS channels in 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.
