It lacks clothing: Scarlet Blade reveals new trailer and begins testing

Michael Dunaway
By Michael Dunaway, News Editor January 22, 2013

What Scarlet Blade's new trailer lacks in dialog it certainly makes up for in gymnastic female fits of twirling and tatas. Granted the trailer was doing a fairly decent job of showing me its apparently wide range of character classes with matching gameplay showcasing unique attributes of each. I found some of the class names pretty cliche like "The Whipper" whose matching catch phrase "This is Going to Sting" had me feeling like I should be watching the video in private browsing mode. Never mind the fact the character's armor was literally two fabric strips with jester bells at the ends. The characters are apparently genetically engineered females and are of course the only ones capable of saving Earth from invasion.

Alpha testing for the mature MMORPG has just kicked off as well, with players able to sign up for closed beta here.

This is pretty good game I like so far. It just needs more quest and armor,weapons and skills.

It's just a bunch of pixel boobs, get your heads out of your asses ffs!

To anyone complaining about complainers 8 years ago
..To anyone complaining about complainers, how is your point any more valid? You're whining about's fairly sensible to say you're no better than those who are complaining. However, the people complaining usually have valid points. This game does take sexualization too far, it appears to be mostly eye-candy with gameplay expected from an mmo realized in the year 2000 and, can offend people.

The fact you all act as if you're somehow above being offended really doesn't say much for you; this idea of "just ignore it" is about as weak of an argument as you can get because, like it or not, this IS having an effect on how people continue to view women. Women are more than just sex icons and this game DOESN'T help that view. Simply ignoring it isn't a solution.

While america is known to be more prudish compared to the east there's still no reason for sexualization to be taken this far in a game. Would you play this in public? Would you view porn in public? Most will say no and that is because it is viewed with disgust and disdain. It's one thing to accept the idea that sex is everywhere. Yes, it is. But people don't enjoy having it shoved in their face.

Yes, if you're not fond of the idea, you don't need to play. But that doesn't change the fact that it exists and, while I risk using a blanket statement, there is a factual base in saying that a large portion of the people who are going to play this are in it FOR the sexual tendencies this game has. Perhaps it may have other qualities but to market a game based solely on this point really says a lot about the developers and the host. We have different sensibilities over here and it's safe to say that most people don't want this kind of thing.

Furthermore, will you ever feel truly comfortable playing this with anyone else in the room? Being comfortable with your sexuality is one thing but if you want porn, go watch porn. Hell, if you want a porn game go get a hentai game. It's rather redundant and though it tries to be funny, ignorance isn't funny. Ignorance of our sensibilities as a society isn't funny.

To any one complaining about the game, no-ones forcing you to play it, so why complain about it?
Just ignore it and go back to playing what ever game you were before.

why is it that most asian made games look the same? Oh yeah, because Asian developers don't learn from each other's mistakes and continue to make more anime shit.

To all the people who are bitching about the...showings in this game, you really need to find another game to complain about. Although the NA version was re-named this was originally called "Queens blade online."

Due to what it's based off, of course this is how the game is going to turn out.

"Sir, today's gamers seem to be mostly interested in graphics, female models and skimpy armors!"
"Very well, let us make a game where no one's allowed to play a male, with plenty of curvy females to pick (and flat ones, because some folks swing that way) and all the skimpy outfits and underwear we can get away with"
"Bloody brilliant sir!"

God dammit!Iam staying faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar away from this game.
Seriously?Marketing boobs is your best way to lure players?SERIOUSLY?
Why no one makes a "true mature" game?Why people think that mature means huge boobs, less cloth and guts everywhere??This is not mature!This is for kids that think they are adults!
Mature is knowing the place of these things, understanding then, and not being obsessed by then!

Man, i'm starting to think that our industry is too imature, but trying to be mature, like a teenager...

Hacchan 8 years ago
Ok so im in the alpha and.... the games need an age rating...
To put it simple
Female character ONLY with generous curves or lolicon
You can choose their underwear type (*facedesk*) from basic bikini to gstring, borrat string etc
(Yes.. the nipples are shown on lots)

The gameplay is like old school and quite rigid (and borring)
It's like traditionnal f2p mmo, can run around, need to stay fix etc

Too bad, I think the visual design of the enemies and various mechs is actually quite good but the silly character design spoils the game's potential. It's impossible to take it seriously like this.

its crap like this that brings me closest to being ashamed to call myself a gamer, its getting to the point that when society looks at hardcore gamers all they see are a bunch of perverts getting it off to pixels. and frankly, that notion becomes more and more accurate as time goes on in my makes me sick.
