Blade & Soul Mobile: First Impression
Blade & Soul Mobile is a card-based mobile game developed by NCSOFT; the chinese version of the game is distributed by Tencent. The CBT is held from 18th Aug to 7th Sept 2015 and all data will be wiped after that. CBT keys are given to Blade & Soul Online CN (MMORPG) players, along with handsome rewards, including in-game items and gift pack for the upcoming OBT (only if you have reached level 45 on the mobile games before the CBT ends).
Initially, I have only started playing Blade and Soul mobile because of the event which offers in-game items for the PC version of BNS. To be honest, I am not a real fan of mobile games. Furthermore, there are various bugs and compatibility with BNS Mobile, for example, the game refused to run on my ASUS Zenfone 5 and i had to switch to Samsung Galaxy Note to play the game. It is currently only available for Android phone as well. However, BnS mobile exceeds my expection!
Surprisingly, the game turns out to be really good and lives up to the reputation of Blade & Soul online. It is after all made by the same developer who have produced BnS. The story of the game occurs before the event in the original BnS. You will see many familiar characters which you have encoutered in BnS. You play as a lad who have come across a ring, which harbors a ring spirit.
Upon wearing the ring, you somehow become delusional and start seeing man as young girls. This creates various funny scenarios during the early part of your adventure. More importantly, it gives the developer a good reason to turn some familiar male characters in BNS into the cute or girly characters. However, as the story unfolds, it turns out that the ring possesses some dark energy and might turn you into a demon. You will journey across the world of BNS to uncover the mystery revolving this magic ring.
BNs mobile complements the original game by expanding the character developments of main/side characters in the original story. In fact, the main character of the original BNS will appear in the BNS mobile as well. If you have played the original BnS, this game will definitely appeal to you.
