As someone who loves the majority of Platinum’s non-licensed work, I thought this looked like straight up dogshit. How has this been a title in development for years? I’m hoping this is like...a 2022 title or something. It needs a lot of work.
Not sure if excited about this or not
Seems like the usual platinum combat (which I love) while trying to ape some of that fromsoft visual design...and kinda failing at it? For some reason the world or characters dont seem to have that much personality compared to something like nier or astral chain
I remember one of platinum bosses mentioning how they had a game that was "unlike anything else they had done before" and I was kinda expecting this to be it...Seeing how its not, I wonder what other game it could be. I dont think bayo 3 so maybe there's a 3rd project they are working on, maybe another one with my man yoko taro
This looks abysmal for Platinum standards. Has to be pre-alpha, looks very half-baked and like they felt a need to rush out some quick trailer. All my interest in the game is pretty much killed now, let's hope the next showing in summer will be better.
I don't know why I feel this way, but since 2014, it feels like all of Platinum's output ends up looking or feeling too much like their other output. Like the color scheme, sword swinging, and dodging all felt very reminiscent of Nier here. The only games that I feel like I haven't done this are, well, Nier, and Granblue.
Shame, looks like yet another combo heavy, fast-paced ARPG. With their talent, I wish they'd try something different. Something slower but more methodical, grounded approach to combat. I guess that's not what Platinum Games are famed for but I want to see what they could do on that front. Like Capcom's equivalent of Dragon's Dogma.
