I really can't tell whether the devs are running out of idea that they just used pretty much the same concept from it's PC version. The MU franchise is a pretty popular game in the East and as far as I can tell, I'm quite impress how they were able to port an old game to the mobile industry and got the same amount of DAUs similar to the PC. I guess they did quite a good job in marketing the game.
