The Dragon Sword debut trailer shows off the Hound 13’s Genshin-like Impact-like UE5

Just before the end of 2022, South Korean game developer Hound 13 released the first trailer for Dragon Sword, its new game project made with Unreal Engine 5 for PC and mobile devices.

Hound 13 may not be a household name yet, but it was founded by former employees of Eyedentity Games, the studio behind PC MMORPG Dragon Nest. To date, Hound has released 13 RPG Hundred Soul games for mobile devices.

The footage shows the focus on team combat against mobs or large bosses. The visual style is a bit reminiscent of Genshin Impact, though the details are at a premium here.

There isn’t much now about Dragon Sword, except for this brief description available on Hound 13’s website.

Dragon Sword aims for hand-to-hand gameplay with a sense of punch with in-depth scenarios and is developed into a semi-open world structure based on various fields and interactions. Based on the visual concept of a cute character that can be communicated indoors and outdoors, the goal is to implement a bright, light but immersive movement. It aims to provide cross-platform services that simultaneously support PC/mobile devices using the Unreal Engine.

In 2021, the Korean studio received 20 billion won, or US$15.7 million, in investment from Singaporean publisher Garena, who is set to handle global publishing duties for the two games. The first is Dragon Sword, and the second is Project M, a narrative-based action RPG for PC set in the High Fantasy/Dark Fantasy universe. You can take a look at footage of the Project M combat prototype in the video embedded above.
