Announcements

Hi everyone, it is time for the biggest announcement in Wuxiaworld’s history!  As has just been reported by the media in places like TechCrunch, Wuxiaworld has been acquired by Kakao Entertainment (KE) via its U.S. subsidiary, Radish Media.  This is something we have been working on for months, and I know it will raise an enormous amount of speculation, so I have prepared a list of topics and answers that I expect many of you would be the most concerned or interested in.

New Korean novels coming, old ones are returning!

As some of you know, since we first started working on licensing Korean novels, there have been a good number of novels that our Korean partners simply weren’t able to acquire for us, and as a result those novels were taken down.  When Kakao Entertainment makes a call, though, everyone picks up the phone!  Very soon, I expect we will be making announcements about the licensing and return of many of the old novels - and licenses for hotly anticipated new ones, including (hopefully) some that many...

Hi everyone, I know it's been a bit of a drought between novels lately, for numerous reasons that I'll explain later.  However, I'm glad to announce that this week, we have released Become a Star and Return of the Disaster-Class Hero!  The drought is over, and there will be a veritable downpour of novels coming in 2022, more than in any two years combined in Wuxiaworld's history.  Big things are afoot!  But first - let's talk about the two new novels.

Return of the Disaster-Class Hero: Earth has been invaded, and thirteen humans have risen as 'awakened beings' to spearhead its defense! Lee Gun is Korea's awakened, and the strongest amongst them. But on one fateful day, during a combined assault on the invaders' headquarters, Lee Gun is backstabbed by his allies and left to die. And without his strength, humanity's hopes are lost. That is until twenty years later, when Lee Gun suddenly returns! Written by the author of Tomb Raider King, SAN.G, Disaster-Class Hero follows Lee Gun as he attempts to make sense of the...

Readers, happy to announce two new special releases for August - Absolute Resonance, by the author of BTTH/The Great Ruler/Dragon Prince Yuan/etc. who we all know and love, and Records of Dungeon Travel, by the author of Dragon Poor!  For Absolute Resonance in particular, we are working very closely with the author, and in fact we recommended this English name to them as the official English name that'll be used for not just the novel, but also the manhua and upcoming animations.

Absolute Resonance:

Absolute Resonance tells the tale of Li Luo, who in many other stories would be a stereotypical 'young master' - he's born as the heir of House Luolan, the newest of the five Great Houses of the land of Xia, and his parents were two of the youngest and most powerful cultivators to rise to the rank of Duke - no mean feat!  Unfortunately, while things seem glorious from the surface, in reality Li Luo is facing a number of seemingly insurmountable problems.  Both his parents have gone missing, causing House Luolan's position...

Friends, we're announcing the release of 'The Regressed Demon Lord is Kind', and updating the initial 6-book Amazon release of Sovereign of the Three Realms, with the next 6 books in the series waiting for Amazon approval!

The Regressed Demon Lord is Kind: This is a rather different story from most of the reincarnation stories we've seen in the past! In his past life, Zich was an outcast youth who, in an obssessive quest for power, became known as the 'Demon Lord of Strength'. His reign, however, came to an end when he was defeated by a party of heroes. The Sun Hero, Glen Zenard, claimed his life, but the Sun Hero's last words were to repeat Zich's crimes and tell him to live a kind life next time.

When Zich dies, what greets him is not hell but his nineteen-year-old self reflected back at him! No longer desperately seeking the affection of his family and possessing the skills and knowledge of his past life, Zich punches the servants who treat him rudely and points his sword against his father and half-brother....

Friends, in May we are welcoming three new releases on Wuxiaworld!  We have released Court Lady, Game of the Monarch, and the long-awaited Etranger.  Read on for more!

Court Lady: Court Lady is a very special novel, as it is the novelization of '骊歌行', a period drama/palace drama set in Tang Dynasty China by Huanyu Entertainment whom we have reached a special partnership with - we're releasing chapters alongside the tv episodes being released, so it is a simul-cast!  You can check out the drama series here on Youtube! Court Lady tells the story of Sheng Chumu, once renowned as the number one hedonist of Chang'an City, a wastrel who could barely ride a horse without falling off. He's now fallen head over heels for a seamstress named Fu Rou from Guangzhou and will do anything to be with her, including giving up his previous lifestyle and going through a one hundred and eighty degree change to improve his literary knowledge and martial arts. But will his entry into her life be a blessing or a downfall? 

Fu Rou manages...

Everyone, Amazon ebooks for Second Coming of Gluttony, Desolate Era, and Seoul Station Necromancer are in full publication mode, with many more coming!  We'll now be releasing them at a weekly pace; it took a while to finish things up a bit, but they are now all coming!  Sovereign of the Three Realms in particular is being delayed because of Amazon shenanigans, but as soon as it is approved we'll have six of them out as well.  Audiobooks will be en route very shortly as well.  I hope y'all can support this, especially SCOG as their performance will be a testament to rights holders that Wuxiaworld's rather unique system continues to follow the right Dao!  Come relive the journey or start it for the first time!

Hi guys, RWX here!  We've had a spate of successful Korean launches, and now we're going to add two more to them - My Civil Servant Life Reborn in the Strange World (whew, what a mouthful), and Dragon Poor!  These two unique and very entertaining novels come highly recommended by our VIP Sneak Peek readers, and I truly hope you like them!  Both are being translated by new Wuxiaworld translators; the former is translated by Sangwoo, while the latter is being translated by BananaOoyoo.  Please join me in a big Wuxiaworld welcome for them!

My Civil Servant Life Reborn in the Strange World: This novel is a comedy-fantasy where our main protagonist, Denburg Blade, is reborn as the son of the strongest chief of the strongest tribe of the strongest race, the 'battle races'. However, Denburg wants nothing but to live a life of peace! Before being reborn, Denburg had just passed his civil service exam. Now, he begins an adventure in pursuit of peace and a stable life by trying to become a civil servant (again) while being...

Hey guys, the very popular Second Life Ranker is now finally live on Wuxiaworld!  Quite a few of you guessed it from the roadmap announcement, but the mystery novel in that one was indeed Second Life Ranker - as you might have been able to guess from the way I phrased it, 'Some Licensing Revelations'.  Second Life Ranker was translated up to 370 in two other places via a set of three translators l; we purchased the first 100 from the first translator (TK), got 101-360'ish from the second translator (inyourgalaxy/HH), and then brought IYG on to redo the chapters up to 370.  She will now be doing the entire series on Wuxiaworld at 1/day, so please join me in giving inyourgalaxy a warm Wuxiaworld welcome!

We've been editing and will continue to edit the earlier chapters to ensure standardization of terms and quality.  One of our priorities was wanting to try and figure out a way to 'merge' the audiences; the new WW audience as well as the old fanbase.  In the end, we settled on this; we are now launching with 'just'...

Friends and readers, we have two new series!  The first is a Korean novel from Breathe, Duke Pendragon, which is being translated by new Wuxiaworld translator DanTheMan; please join me in a hearty Wuxiaworld welcome for him!  The second is Magic Apprentice, a 17k Western fantasy novel translated by Wuxiaworld veteran Deceptioning, who also did USAW for us!

Duke Pendragon:  Duke Pendragon tells the story of Raven Valt, a young man shackled into the demonic army where the worst of the worst gather. In a series of unexpected events, Raven is sent back in time as Alan Pendragon, the heir to one of five most powerful noble families in the empire. Throughout the story, Raven seeks to redeem the Valt family’s injustice and in the process, finds a trail of conspiracies that reach much, much deeper than he could have ever thought.

This is a remarkably well-rounded story that gets rid of many traditional flaws.  The premise of the story is based on reincarnation / travelling back in time, which is quite common, but the author...

Everyone, welcome to 2021!  2020 has been an absolutely horrid year for many people on many levels, and I think many (most? all?) of us are glad to leave it behind.  With that said, I wanted to give everyone a preview for some of the things that are coming up in the coming few months for Wuxiaworld.

Front-End Site Redesign - This one has been a long time coming!  Historically, we've focused more on incremental changes and feature build-out rather than overhauling the site itself, but for quite a few months now we've been playing on-and-off with giving Wuxiaworld a sleeker and more modern look.  One key consideration on our side was maintaining an appropriate level of information density, since many 'redesigns' end up sacrificing functionality for experienced users on the altar of simplicity, which we aren't a fan of.  We're getting close to a more finalized streamlined redesign, which those who are interested can check out some mock-ups of here.  Note that everything is still a work-in-progress, and there are multiple...
