The trailer was released right after the game’s global release. It features Sung Jinwoo and his shadow army with top-notch graphics and combat. The video also shows that the game had 12M pre-registrations.

Cross-Platform Availability

Solo Leveling: ARISE is available on three different platforms. Players can download the game on their PC or on either of the two major mobile operating systems – iOS or Android. There are no major differences in pricing or features between these three platforms. 

Playing Solo Leveling: ARISE on PC usually offers better performance due to superior hardware, leading to higher framerates and faster loading times. However, performance may vary based on PC specs, and some PCs may perform similarly to mobile devices. 

The official website has a detailed guide about the game’s installation on PC.

The game can run comfortably on a PC with an i3 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 2 GB GPU or better. 

The game’s minimum requirements are not too demanding. However, the variety of PC specifications can lead to more bugs and issues.

Solo Leveling: ARISE controls are optimized for touch screens, which can make them less intuitive when playing on a PC. To have the best experience on PC, players are recommended to use a controller. This might require additional expenses, but it shouldn’t concern those who already have one or are willing to invest in it.

Moreover, Solo Leveling: ARISE allows players to share saved files between different devices, such as smartphones and PCs, by simply logging in to the same account on both devices.

First Impression of The Game

Solo Leveling: ARISE is a perfect game for webtoon fans. Sung Jinwoo remains the main playable character throughout. Unlike most gacha games, Jinwoo’s role doesn’t diminish over time.

The game focuses on strengthening Jinwoo, whose level also represents your account level. He has unique skills and is the main character in most missions. The game keeps Jinwoo’s gameplay fresh and engaging by allowing him to access more jobs as you level up.

The combat is more like Punishing Gray Raven and Honkai Impact 3rd. And honestly, the fights feel great. While most gacha games based on popular anime don’t have the best experience, Solo Leveling: ARISE completely outshines. You can also use different characters in dungeons that you obtain from gacha. Basically, it’s like the OG series, where you form a team and raid. 

The game is also faithful to the main story and features stellar voice acting. Also, like any gacha game, it offers beginners a lot of free goodies. 

However, with pros, the game also has many bugs and flaws. If you play for a while, it feels like everything is put on Sung, making it boring. The game keeps crashing in between, with a black screen and a loading bar popping out. The monetization and the gacha system are also poor and a bit frustrating. Weapons are placed with standard characters, meaning there is little probability of getting what you want.

Overall, Solo Leveling: ARISE is not a perfect game. The developers need to fix many things, which is understandable as it is a new game. Still, it is one of the best gacha games and even has the potential to surpass some top contenders. 

So, would I recommend it? Absolutely. It is a game that every Manwha or Solo Leveling fan should try out. We hope that Netmarble will do its best and make this game even better.
