Scarlet Blade

Scarlet Blade, known in foreign countries and even to some people in the US as Queen’s Blade Online, is Aeria Games’ newest upcoming MMORPG. The game, which features only female characters, is set to take place on a sort of post-apocalyptic futuristic earth. Because the earth has been invaded by an alien species known as the Narak, the player begins their journey in a high-tech underground base.

From there on the player will journey through a great deal of new environments, fighting all sorts of strange creatures along the way.

But what good would a game like Scarlet Blade be if there weren’t a few diamond locations for players to go have fun and frolic in, in this hell of a world? Nestled within the frozen mountains is a sunny beach oasis just waiting to be found. There’s also a nightclub, for all those players who’re just lookin’ to get down. Unfortunately I don’t have any screenshots of those locations, so please just enjoy these instead, ohoho!

About Joey Williamson

Joey is a summer 2012 graduate of the Studio Art program at Florida State University, where he focused in illustration and sculpture. He's currently employed part-time at Toys"R"Us, sitting on that job to buff up his resume while applying for other jobs more relevant to his degree.

Things that you might catch him doing on his time off include frequent trips to the movie theater, throwing down some new sketches for project ideas that will never see the light of day, or crying about having to go to work the next day. To break the lull of his tears, he likes to watch anime and try out new games, particularly MMOs. He's a huge Sailor Moon fanboy, but also gives a 10 out of 10 to shows like Arakawa Under the Bridge, Katanagatari, and Kids on the Slope.




  • I mean, eff Queen’s Blade and everything it stands for, but interest vaguely piqued.

    • Yeah for sure. I’ve heard both good and bad about the game, and I’d like to point out that while there’s no nudity or anything, they’re literally going to the extreme to outfit the female characters in the stereotypical female MMO player-character equipment. Meaning: The smaller it is, the higher the defense.

      The game itself is probably decent though, I’m signed up for the next CBT so we’ll see how that goes.

    • Actually, incorrect. From the FAQ:

      Q: IS THERE NUDITY IN THIS GAME?

      A: There is some nudity in the game. As a result, in addition to the standard age requirement of 13 for Aeria Games, we require that players be 18 or over to play Scarlet Blade.

    • Wow shit. I mean it IS based off of Queen’s Blade so I don’t know why I assumed there wouldn’t be. I feel like I’d care more about the nudity if like… The graphic quality was TERA level. But the graphics for this just seem decent, so I’m indifferent.

    • QB is so hilariously terrible. It should have a crossover with Senran Kagura.

    • May as well throw in Sekirei while we’re at it.

    • Sekirei isn’t as bad as QB or SK. You could watch it without hating yourself. Same with Ikkitousen (which was super bloody at times.)

    • Ikkitousen was actually pretty decent yeah. Maybe throw in Manyuu Hikenchou or Seikon no Qwaser then :v

    • solbalmung

      Add Seikon No Qwaser. Ok plot but comon, tit suking? O_o

    Just so you know, this isn’t based on the “Queen’s Blade” anime and manga. The original Korean title is “Queens Blade” (no apostrophe) and has nothing to do at all with the Japanese anime or manga – not the team, staff, story, characters, or company, publisher, developer – anything. Also, this is the reason why the title was changed to “Scarlet Blade” in America – to avoid copyright infringement.

    And for the record, the game does contain nudity, but the North American version will censor one of the classes that appears to be underage (despite the game claiming that she is 18 years old)

    • You got me there. I haven’t been following this one too particularly closely, so my information on this probably isn’t the best.

  • Joe

    I was part of the Alfa test and the game was………..ok, but not great, yeah girls in skimpy clothing and future alien…stuff, but the battle system is the same old click on it and press all your number and F keyes untill it dies, and there are too many sex jokes but not even funny sex jokes, i mean seriously offensive and other aimply bad jokes, but gotta love the connection they have, during the test i never got logged out or experienced any lag.
    In the end the game looks great, the characters look even better, but the gameplay is not anything new.
    And yes, I played a Sentinel with a decensoring patch.
