While older PS Showcase This week was ultimately a bit of a disappointment, there were It featured some great PS5 games – and one title that particularly caught the eye was Phantom Blade Zero, a high-octane Chinese action game with less than stellar voice acting. It is being developed by a team called S-GAME, which has previously worked on a bunch of mobile games. In fact, believe it or not, it is No First Phantom Blade – More available for smartphones.
This obviously makes for a remarkable leap in quality here, but many have already noted that the gameplay in the trailer doesn’t look like much. enough Right – Almost like it’s animation without any actual controller input. one in dispute The questions and answers recapped by this Twisted pixels, the developer assured that it was real gameplay using cinematic camera angles, but this raised more questions. For example, it assumes the release – which is only in development since 2022 – will have a full 30-40 hour story. Well, that’s fair enough – but it doesn’t end there!
For example, the team says that once you’ve polished off the plot you’ll have plenty to come back to, including—wait for it—a full multiplayer mode, roguelike missions, dungeons, and several side- Quests. Oh, and by the way, it says it’s also using a “semi-open world” structure that it believes will allow you to access content in unique ways, without traversing vast expanses of terrain.
So this the sounds Good, then, but is it justified? Well, with respect, it wouldn’t be the first Chinese title to make a great first impression and then never really seem to make much meaningful progress. Do you remember the likes of Lost Souls Aside and Black Myth: Wukong, for example? S-Game is really promising very much Here, and we sincerely hope it all comes together. For now, though, consider us highly skeptical.
