Lost Ark is the best Diablo 3 clone you can't play

Western release please?

There are Diablo clones. And then there's Lost Ark.

Lost Ark is a Korean-made action-RPG that looks a lot like Blizzard's Diablo 3 - with a raft of fancy bells and whistles layered on top.

The eight minute video, below, gives us a great indication of what Lost Ark is like. There are mounts, for a start, spectacular spells and abilities, nice-looking animations and eye-catching environments. Classes include Fighter, Warrior, Magician and Gunner. Gunner looks best to me.

It's published by Smilegate, the the Korean company behind the Oliver twins' latest game, SkySaga, and is developed by Tripod Studio.

There's a lot to Lost Ark that you would accuse of ripping off Diablo 3, but it's done so well you can't help but wonder about a western release.

Unfortunately there seems little chance of that happening. There's a fancy website but we can't make much sense of it. So, ultimately, we may have to label Lost Ark as the best Diablo 3 clone we'll never play.
