Bandai Namco is difficult at work on a new IP, not less than we expect it’s a “new” IP. Not a lot is thought about it, not even the title. Nevertheless, the corporate posted a video to its official YouTube channel that gives a teaser of what’s to return.
The video reveals what seems to be a feminine protagonist combating creatures with a unusual sword or possibly it’s a quick spear; it may even be a rifle with a bayonet connected. The video opens with her licking blood from the nook of her mouth, and there may be a flash of sharp fangs. Maybe she is a vampire.
The video is in black and white with crimson highlights paying homage to Sin Metropolis, and the entire thing seems hand drawn. Whether or not that is going to be the graphical type of the completed recreation is unknown, however whether it is, it is going to be a good departure from the usual hyper-realistic look that almost all video games attempt for nowadays. The hand-drawn look has a sure inventive attraction that’s refreshing.
The trailer ends with the hero coming head to head with a large monster; then it fades to black with nothing however the hashtag, #PrepareToDine. GameSpot believes that the hashtag is a reference to the #PrepareToDie tagline that Bandai Namco makes use of in its advertising for the Darkish Souls franchise.
Nevertheless, it’s unknown if this new project will probably be associated to Darkish Souls in any approach. Additionally it is unknown if From Software program, the studio behind the franchise will probably be concerned. It’s a chance although since From has simply wrapped up The Ringed Metropolis DLC, which was the ultimate installment for Darkish Souls III. The studio ought to now be capable to minimize all the way down to a patch crew for DS3 whereas the remainder of the staff focuses on the new project, however that is simply hypothesis.
That mentioned, we must be studying extra in regards to the project very quickly. Bandai Namco has acknowledged that they’d have an official announcement of the sport on April 20. Presumably, they may present us with the title at the moment as effectively.
