The developers at X-Legend certainly know their market. The Taiwan-based studio have a proven track record, being responsible for both Grand Fantasia and Eden Eternal, two widely popular anime styled MMOs. Not ones to stray too far from their roots, X-Legend has announced yet another anime MMO called, Aura Kingdom.
The MMO’s main angle lies in its interactive companions. Like traditional pet systems found in other MMOs, Aura Kingdom’s companions can level up, unlocking new abilities and even joining the player in special combo attacks. However, in Aura Kingdom companions remember past conquests and frequently reminisce with the player about previous events.
Combat looks to be a mix of tab-target style aiming, but with extremely mobile attacks. Players initially get to choose from one of the eight classes in-game, but later on they can opt to use a second class’s weapon type as well. Diversity among classes was a big theme in Eden Eternal and X-Legend has continued this practice in Aura Kingdom. Players are encouraged to swap skills often, experimenting with different strategies and finding ones that fit their play style.
X-Legend will be once again teaming up with Aeria Games to publish Aura Kingdom, with closed beta signups now live on the official site.
