You've probably read a lot over the past few days, or at least you probably have if you've got any interest in video games outside of the mobile sphere, about Nintendo Labo. People have been getting their hands on the new tech, and the general consensus is that it's looking like it might be pretty special.
Which got me thinking - is this the sort of thing we're likely to see coming to mobile any time soon? And if we are, what form is it likely to take? These questions and more are all going to get answered in the next few paragraphs, so let's put on our thinking caps and see where they take us.
Webzen is at it again, churning out a fresh stream of a new class, equipment, and mechanics for its flagship MMO, MU Origin. The game changes quite a bit in its new version update, but we assure you there’s something here for everyone. New multiplayer, refined systems, and more are sure to keep you busy for weeks to come. Here’s what you can expect from the latest patch.
It’s been a while, but MU Origin is introducing a new class at last, the Summoner. The Summoner uses their magical abilities to call upon Valkyrie, who will lay waste to your enemies in battle. You can create a summoner if you have at least one character at 3 Rebirth Level 1, or by using a Scroll of Dark Souls.
You can now create a Sub-Character, too, which should significantly change up the way you play. This “extra” character allows you to play as another class while keeping your Rebirth, Levels, Resources, States, Pets, and more. Equipment and skills won’t transfer between characters, but it should offer you more flexibility in battle. The Sub-Character can be unlocked by completing the quest, “Secret”, which is only available to character at 8 Rebirth Level 1. Once that’s done, you’ll need to pay up 1,500 Unbound Diamonds, and then the Sub-Character is yours.
If you’re looking for more Guild action, MU Origin has you covered in that department as well. The game’s newest Guild event, The Land of Struggle, will pit guilds against each other to be the fastest to defeat the event boss and deal the most damage. The event is ongoing every Wednesday-Friday. If your guild is victorious, you could win a number of fancy prizes, including Bound Zen, EXP, Contribution Points, and the Emperor Card.
You’ll find plenty of other treats sprinkled throughout, as well. The Forge is a new Refine system, while West Akeron is a new all-server area that lets you mingle will all players. Webzen is introducing a new CP Rewards System that gifts players special rewards based on their CP. For fashion forward players, you’ll now have access to the Blood Costume, and the Three Chicken Brothers are sure to please folks in the market for a new pet.
Ready to give MU Origin a go? You can play it for free right now on iOS and Android.

Over the past couple of days we've seen two massive Android phones announced over at MWC. There's Samsung's Galaxy S9, and Sony's Xperia XZ2. Both of them are pretty impressive in terms of stats, and both companies seem to be focusing (if you'll excuse the pun) on releasing phones with impressive cameras.
But if you ask me, neither of the devices has the chops to knock the iPhone off the top spot, especially when it comes to gaming. Why's that you ask? Well give me a moment and I'll explain exactly what I mean.
It’s time to embark on a remarkable fantasy adventure as Flyff Legacy, the popular free-to-play MMORPG, finally comes to Europe at long last. The game builds on the original Flyff Onlinefor PC with enhanced graphicsand fresh PVP gameplay that will keep you coming back time and time again.
Flyff Legacy is set in the world of Madrigal, a colorful land with anime stylings. Choose from three different classes--Mercenary, Acrobat, or Magician, before setting forth on a quest to earn your first magic broom. With broom in hand, you’ll be able to explore every stretch of Madrigal by air or land.
If you’ve been known to frequent the Game of Dice title and have a penchant for that cute little Japanese cat (who is apparently actually a little girl…), JoyCity’s latest update of the game will be right up your street.
The general gist of the game centres on a table-based board game situation, where players must outsmart enemies using a variety of different cards and skill sets, including Boost Items and Characters who work to bankrupt opponents of their JOY.
Lovers of the Star Trek franchise will already be aware of the original release of this game, which has now been transformed with the release of a new version by Genera Games: Wrath of Gems.
Whilst previously, players could strive to attack foes in weekly battles only, this new update brings with it an exciting new social feature: Alliances. With this, players can form their own teams with allies across the globe, hunting down the strongest crews and fleets to complement their own. Ensuring that choices are well thought-out is paramount to success when it comes to this new version of the game.
Pack your suitcase, kiss your kids goodbye: come June 9th you’re set to be jetting off with astragon’s new flight simulation release, Take Off - The Flight Simulator.
For those who find flying a disconcerting prospect in reality, or just really fancy the idea of soaring into the skies from their office chair, this title offers an immersive experience without the hassle of, you know, having to attend a flight school and buy your own plane.
Pairing slick visuals with a frustratingly addictive premise, ZPlay’s Inner Circle is a must-play for anybody who enjoys a good time-sensitive puzzle game. Using a simplistic (but highly effective) layout, the game is opened up to a vast demographic of players – young and old.
To succeed at the game, players must work to line up rings of colour to match that of the ‘inner circle’, whilst the ring shrinks in size and looms closer to its orbit. If players don’t line up the colour before the ring hits the centre - by tapping the screen to rotate and swiping to shrink faster - they will lose the game.
With an impressive 250 levels to get stuck into, the title offers extensive gameplay and promises to get right under the skin of its players. Perfect for those who lean towards brain-training and cognitive challenges, with its Tetris-esque format.
Inner Circle possesses a selection of interesting features, including a night-mode to ensure the brightness of the nigh-neon colours doesn’t affect eyesight, and an Arcade mode that allows players to plough through levels indefinitely. The night modeis achieved by altering the colour scheme presented in the original version of the game.
The title will be available soon, for iOS devices, so keep circling in on that App Store!
