Prius Online: Relaunching with a New Name

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,658MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Prius Online players will be happy to hear that the game is making a comeback with a new publisher and a new name. Netmarble has acquired the game and will publish it under the title Arcane Saga. Arcane Saga is expected to launch in the first half of 2013.

"We really put Arcane Saga back in the oven to bake and we've brought out a lot of the fun without destroying the heart of the game," said Jon-Enée Merriex, producer, Netmarble. "The Arcane Saga experience takes the best of what players enjoyed from the game's earlier incarnation and adds highly demanded features, such as the upcoming party matching system and arena player-versus-player combat."

    looking forward to it. Although Prius was the generic fair from any mmo i liked the characters and the anima system. Will play it again with Netmarble. I hope it gets a bit more polished tho. It needed it before.

    But it's still just Prius. You can't make a Mercedes Benz out of a K car.

    Lets hope the cash shop that NetMarble will use is not a Pay2Win like gPotato had. That was one of the reasons I quited it back then...

    AsRock 990FX Extreme3
    AMD Phenom II 1090T ~3.2Ghz
    GEiL 16Gb DDR3 1600Mhz
    ASUS GTX970 3x HD monitor 1920x1080

    For those who don't know, btw, "prius" is the nebula or star cluster we call the "seven sisters" in the west. So it's not just about a car - that's just the association you have with the word.

    So Netmarble is owned by the people who made the game.  It's not that Netmarble acquired the title.... they always had it.

    Shit game is still shit game even when renamed. But with how stupid "gamers" tend to be I bet a large portion of them won't notice it.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    This game actually had some things going for it. You guys need to calm down on the overly critical bandwagon. The only problem with the game was it was being published by gPotato. Not even kidding. That was the big no-no because gPotato always manages to slip in pay-to-win options into their games.

    the only stupid gamers (besides trolls and kid trolls) in my book are the ones who support pay to win. As long as its not pay to win im glad this game is back because i loved the anima system and my Lon Femina character. I wish they improved it tho because i know it has flaws...... generic flaws, just like every mmorpg out there.
