Today Black Desert developer Pearl Abyss released a music video dedicated to the upcoming release of the new character Nova.
The song is a special arrangement of “Yuki no Hana” (Snow Flower in Japanese), performed by popular singer and actress Mika Nakashima.
You can check it out below.
Nova will launch on all platforms (PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile) on Dec. 22.
Incidentally, we also hear that Pearl Abyss will take over the game’s service on PC as well starting on Feb. 24, 2021. The developer has already been taking care of the console and mobile versions.
It’ll be interesting to see if this will lead to a further standardization of the updates across platforms. Nova certainly appears to be an example of that.
If you’re unfamiliar with Nova, she’s a new character wielding a giant shield and a heavy mace. You can read an official description below.
“Nova wields a Morning Star and the shield Quoratum, which contains the powers of the Divine Tree Quturan. She is the last remaining heir of Calpheon’s royal bloodline that was erased along with the rise of the republic. Her shield covers her body like an iron fortress, and she can flatten even distant enemies by extending the chain of her heavy Morning Star.
Nova’s Quoratum is also possessed by the souls of the Thornwood Guard, who follow her every word. By commanding her spirit guards to attack while she remains fortified behind her giant shield, she can effortlessly combine offensive and defensive tactics to overwhelm her enemies.”
