One of the distinguishing aspects of manga comic books is how well the art conveys the action. Elsword takes that frenetic action right off the page and puts it into a new, exciting online side-scrolling action platformer! This anime-inspired game lets players take control of the adorable, yet deadly characters Elsword, Aisha and Rena — each with their own play style and powerful abilities. Use Elsword’s sharp blade for getting up close and personal. Rena’s bow will make quick work of enemies from afar. Or punish adversaries with Aisha’s devastating magic attacks.
Players will traverse dangerous locales, including dungeons, caves, forests and more. The visuals are stunningly realized and gamers will definitely feel like they’re playing a living comic book, complete with cel-shaded artwork and inspired moments when comic book frames dramatically wrap around the action. For players who want to test their abilities against other players, there’s also an exciting PvP mode.
“Elsword introduces a unique gameplay style that extends a growing brand to a new legion of players,” said Ben Colayco, CEO of Kill3rCombo. “Each time they enter the world, fans will find new ways to experience Elsword‘s depth of adventure, story and action. We hope players will find the Japanese illustration style and heavy PvP action a perfect mix for our first game.”
