Blade & Soul features a combination of martial arts-inspired combat and qinggong in an open-world environment. Players create playable characters that explore around the world by completing quests assigned by various NPCs. The game uses a real-time battle system in the third-person camera view and requires players to “combo” a series of attacks, much like that of fighting games.
Blade & Soul provides a highly customizable system and NPCs in the game are made with the character customization system. Customizations a player has access to include hairstyles, facial structures, facial markings and makeup, eye color, height, and body sliders.
or the next two weeks, a teaser website was updated revealing more information about the project.

Eri Nagata adapts HYUNG TAE KIM game character designs for animation and serves as chief animation director.

The opening theme of the anime is “Sayonara Usotsuki” by MimimemeMIMI, and the ending theme is “RAINBOW” by LEGO BIG MORL.
