What's better than free massively multiplayer online role-playing games? Free massively multiplayer online role-playing games featuring the Celtic tradition and big-eyed anime characters.
That's just what Nexon America, publishers of other free MMOs like Maple Story (you may have heard of it), is ready to unleash on the good old U.S. of A. Mabinogi, as the game is known, hits the Web this Thursday for free. Like past Nexon titles, players have the freedom to pay as much as they want depending on the experience they want to have (i.e., come in-game items and features can be bought with real-world money to augment the base game).
In addition to fishing, questing, trading, and other MMO staples, Mabinogi will allow players to purchase character cards that will reset their avatar from the beginning, keeping the skills they've learned, and ultimately allowing for better attributes and abilities once leveled up.
Mabinogi has already reached 7 million players in Asia, and is both vibrant and charming. Just the way we like it.
