Â Fans of Sword 2 will be happy to find out that a new publisher, Redbana, has taken over and is rebranding the game “Granado Espada”. We caught up with Hakkyu Kim, Chief Producer of Granado Espada, and Jun Hyun Kim, CEO of Redbana to talk about the game and what a new publisher will bring to the series. Check it out!
MMORPG: First, start by telling us why the publishing change? Why now, what are the goals you have for the game under Redbanaâ€™s tutelage?
Jun Hyun Kim: Basically the license for the publishing rights expired from another 3rd party publisher at the end of December 2012. We felt this was a good time to acquire the rights and use Granado Espada as our flagship title. The game actually has a strong following so there will be plenty of players when they migrate their accounts over from Sword 2.
