Animals vs. Mutants company, Netmarble US, has announced the upcoming release of Raven in the U.S. Developed by Netmarble Games studio STPlay, the hack-n-slash RPG has found quick success in Korea, where it reportedly hit the No. 1 top grossing slot on both iTunes and Google Play for iOS and Android devices.

Raven has achieved over three million downloads on mobile, and grew to one million daily average users within ten days of its launch. In the game, players choose from multiple races and classes to create their perfect hero. For instance, some players may choose to be an Assassin, which excels with fast attacks, while others may become a Berserker, and so on.

Raven features five gameplay modes, including separate Scenario and Adventure modes, with the latter offering 150 stages to complete. A Raid mode introduces cooperative play, as users team up with friends to fight against dragons. Two other multiplayer modes, Arena and Guild, see players fighting in either one-on-one arcade matches, or fighting with 17 others in honor of their guilds, respectively.

In a statement, Seungwon Lee, overseas president at Netmarble Games Corp., commented on the game’s worldwide release:

With splendid action, dynamic real time battles and thousands of items to collect and upgrade, Raven has struck a resonant chord with gamers. We will leverage the record-setting success of Raven in South Korea as we look forward to bringing the game to players worldwide.

Raven is expected to launch in North America on iOS and Android devices later this year. Check back soon for more.
