Solo Leveling: ARISE Sets Global Launch Date

The first Solo Leveling game has a global release date.

The first Solo Leveling game adaptation from developer Netmarble is clearly being looked forward to by fans of the IP, as the 12 million pre-registrations internationally in less than a month would indicate. Pre-registration is still available for the game, but now players can look forward to the game's official global release, which fortunately isn't too severe of a wait as the launch date pencils in on the May calendar.

Ahead of Solo Leveling: ARISE's release, the press release for the game's launch date from today mentions that "Players can secure a variety of limited-time rewards when the game officially debuts in early May, such as Legendary Artifact Sets, a Chic Black Suit Costume for Sung Jinwoo, two Mana Power Crystal for each attribute (10 total), and 100,000 of Gold. All players who sign up will be given the opportunity to win Jinwoo's cherished partner/hunter as well, Yoo Jinho, as a pre-registration reward."
