RO2 Is back with a vengence!

So basically when we had all assumed that RO2 was dead (or as the wiki said – in development hell), Gravity decided to completely scrap the project and start over. The new game will be called “Legend of the Second” instead of “Gate of World” and it will be what RO2 was supposed to be in the first place: a 3D version of RO1.

The characters will no longer be chibi cute but I guess more mature-ish looking? I don’t know how I feel about that. I actually quite liked the style of the cast of the original RO2 (see my screenshot album) so I guess I’d have to see the 3D version before making a decision! Hopefully some trailers and stuff will popup after the closet beta commences on August 31st.

Rather than remaking all the characters and monsters (except what…porings?) RO2 will now just 3D-efy everything! Awesome, count me in – well whenever a Japanese or English version comes out. I’m going to be passing on the Korean beta (even though they claimed you could use your old RO2 beta account) since I can’t read a word of hangul anyway.

  1. This is definitely what RO2 should’ve been. Too bad they realized it 4 years too late. Playing the previous version of RO2 was weird… other than Vadon Z. That was pretty cool.

  2. Haha Vadon Z! Man I remember that. I dunno I honestly enjoyed the first RO, I loved the character models so I’m looking forward to this. I just hope they don’t look too fugly like WoW style 😦

  3. Ah, I’m glad they started over. I was worried they were just gonna ditch RO2. I’ve got a lot of good memories of RO1 but I don’t really have any desire to play it again from the start. Willing to check out the sequel though.
