After its moody and information-light announcement at E3 2018, I wasn’t certain what to make of Babylon’s Fall. I anticipate slick, stabby, and barely foolish motion from PlatinumGames, the makers of Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Vanquish, and Nier: Automata. Yet right here was this murky fantasy game being introduced like Dark Souls? A brand new trailer at present confirmed among the game and oh mate, this totally is a Platinum motion game. It’s received the lot: slow-mo, air combos, hookshot assaults, parrying an enormous sword, and slaying a foe with their very own weapon. All I must see now could be pert buttocks.
I’m shocked to see the brush-y, paint-y look is definitely a part of the game however it’s a disgrace what they’re displaying is a bit bland. Ah, I shouldn’t choose too unexpectedly. And I’m nicely up for that Platinum motion, thanks very a lot.
While publishers Square Enix broke their silence to launch this trailer, they nonetheless don’t have a lot to say in regards to the game. They say they’ll open up subsequent summer season. Dunno. It is confirmed for a PC launch through Steam, although.
I’m excited for extra of Platinum’s ridiculous parries. Perhaps the very best second in any video game ever is in Metal Gear Rising when our mopey wee roboman parries a sword-wielding dinobot and the music’s shouting and guitars KICK THE HECK IN:
Platinum’s homage to that in The Wonderful 101 is superb too, particularly when set to Rising’s music:
I’ll cut up all of those knights vast open.
