do you remember Blade II: Return of Evil? The mobile action RPG game trendy (and never released around here) will be reworked as a NFT game, and will be called BLADE RE ACTION. The initiative is the result of a partnership between Action Square and Wemade, the same producer of the MMORPG MIR4.

Blade II will become a new NFT game (P2E)
Under a memorandum of understanding (MOU), both companies have entered into an agreement to develop various mobile and PC games with Wemade by integrating their blockchain platform, Wemix. Both companies plan to strengthen their P2E blockchain game development and cross-platform business, as well as leverage “Project Metaverse” to build sincere cooperation between the two companies.
Therefore, Blade II: Return of Evil will be repackaged as Blade: Re.Action or Blade: RE for short.
Blade: RE will use Wemade's Wemix platform and ACT2CO token (provisional name) which will be introduced soon. This token can be purchased in-game and can be used to purchase various NFT items. Players can also exchange the token for Wemix Tokens on a Decentralized Exchange (DEX) through the Wemix Wallet, which in turn can be exchanged for real-life currency.

The company has won numerous awards in the country, including the coveted Korea Game Awards for popular titles such as The Blade franchise. RPG, Three Kingdoms Blade, Blade 2 and Anvil (GiganticX).
Will we finally see Blade 2 in the west?
We all remember the monumental failure of Blade II in the west. The action RPG game was quite popular, especially on Youtube among mobile channels from 2016 to 2018. However, the reality of most consumers did not allow the game to be released here.
To this day, Blade 2 is a game that impresses with its visuals. Development started in 2015 and it was only released in 2018 in South Korea. Whoever tries to play him in an old intermediary will suffer.
The bad news is that Action Square doesn't usually release its games in the west. The first Blade was timidly released on cell phones around here and Blade 2 didn't get the expected hype and ended up just turning into a poorly made port for Nintendo Switch.
