After reviewing a list of upcoming games, I find myself reading "Korea, Korea, Korea, Japan, Korea, Japan..." and so on until finally, ten titles later, I stumble upon a game releasing in the west.

Although some people may just throw these games out on the assumption that they are "Just another grinder." There are actually a LOT of high quality games that we will not see for another 2-3 years.

 

Here are a few:

Continent of the Ninth

 Tera highlights its non-targeting battle mode. In non-targeting battle mode, the player can directly attack monsters without having to select monsters, which is totally different from other MMORPGs out there on the market. This awesome feature will greatly improve the sense of reality and excitement of the game.

 

Blade and Soul

 The trailer video revealed that players will be able to combo skills, and that players will be able to jump and dash while in mid-air, through a system called QingGong. According to an interview with the Development Director, players will also be able to make wine and pottery.

Dragon Ball Online

Here's a Q & A with IGN : pc.ign.com/articles/856/856476p1.html

Monster Hunter Frontier

Set to be more like a guild-wars type game from what i was able to get on the little information there is about this game.

Basically a dungeon crawler on steroids.

looks like a grim year of watching the great come out in the east....

 

Edit: Added videos (that should help)

Warhammer Online will be serviced in South Korea in a completely new appearance. NHN has a strong will to avoid duplicating the same failure in publishing Lord of the Rings online and Monster Hunter Frontier Online. So they decided not only localize Warhammer Online, but to make the game in Korean way. (Via)

First, as the typical system of Warhammer Online, large-scale war (RvR) system will be changed for full-scale war in future.

NHN estimated that Warhammer Online on current state are losing popularity. They are work with EA on the major modifications about the game in order to enable the RvR system in an open field.

Characters change according to user preferences

The characters of Warhammer Online will be modified. Current Orc and Elf in the game have strong personality but not so beautiful in the opinions of Korean.

 

NHN is going to fix the characters in two camps to match the sentiment of Korean, of course in the range of the original atmosphere.

"For a more systematic localization", NHN publishing business manager Shin said "The cases are working through professional translation companies, and we also separated force to support them."
