An epic new clip that I found tonight makes me think that Shadow Magic has surely been years in the making! Morganthe, seeming to make use of such magic, was located in a new trailer that I'd like to share with you.
The TrailerThere's some good detail in this one - take a look! Be sure to watch in HD with your sound up! There are a lot of eerie subtleties that you won't want to miss - grab your headphones if you have them.
Dissecting ContentClearly, here, Morganthe is playing with a form of magic we're not aware of. The Spiders and crystals have the feel of Khrysalis, and the timing couldn't be better. Is this her Shadow Magic in use after discovering her Deck of Shadows in Mirror Lake, tested secretly in a dark location... to see how much water damage it took?
And then, she seems to see someone watching her, and the trailer ends in a violent blast of energy and the Wizard101 logo.
Trouble With the TheoryThis video is From Hinge Digital HERE.... and it was posted one YEAR ago. KingsIsle has used a variety of companies for trailers, but never Hinge Digital.
I'm going to guess that this is another test trailer from a company hoping to do them for KingsIsle - same as the Merle Ambrose one by Greengrass Studios. That can only lead me to one logical conclusion - the trailer doesn't mean much. It's just a flashy sequence with Morganthe.
Of course, I can't imaging that Khrysalis wasn't in the works this time last year, so it's quite possible that they sent out a theme idea to various companies for examples of their work and a quote.
All this in mind, it's still a pretty epic trailer. Perhaps this studio will be giving us more in the future - or this may become part of another commercial. What do you think?
That's it for now, but stay tuned for more Khrysalis coverage in the coming days. Thanks for reading and see you in the Spiral!
