Vindictus is not your kids' Nexon

Nexon. The name probably conjures up brightly-colored free-to-play MMOs like their hits Maplestory, Mabinogi, or perhaps Dungeon Fighter Online to many people. But for those of you who missed our coverage of the Vindictus reveal at GDC 2010, then it's time to change your thinking. While the story is set as a prequel to Mabinogi, this game shares very little else with its cousin -- as the shiny new site that Nexon has just opened evinces.

Vindictus, described by Nexon America's Vice President, Min Kim, as "kind of like 300, except with sexy girls kicking the crap out of stuff as well. So, it's better than 300," is chock full of dark visuals, daring fights, and adventure. To better show off what players can expect in this upcoming f2p title, they've also released an updated video featuring some pretty freaking awesome-looking fights and locations, if we do say so ourselves.

What does this type of brutal, bloody MMO signal for Nexon's future? If we had to guess, it would probably involve even more people checking out their games than before. Check out the updated Vindictus trailer behind the break, or go have a look at the cool new site, and see if you don't agree.
