NCsoft confirmed that it is localizing Blade & Soul for the U.S. It’s a fantasy MMO, but unlike many Western medieval-style games, this one is influenced by wuxia Chinese mythology.

150,000 people took part in the beta trials, and NCsoft says the game has been getting 230,000 concurrent users. “I assure you, Blade & Soul will never run out of content to keep players engaged in the game,” asserts Executive Producer James Bae. “This game will not be a repetitive grindfest.”
