It’s one of those game concepts you’d never think of, but makes perfect sense once you hear it. An open world adventure game about a girl who swaps into different outfits to use different outfits and combat abilities seems like a solid idea. That’s exactly what you’ll be doing in Infinity Nikki, just announced for various platforms including PS5 and PS4.
Chinese studio PaperGames has been making “dress-up adventures” in its Nicki series for years, though only on iOS and Android. Infinity Nikki will be the first attempt to bring this idea to consoles, as well as adopt an open world setting.
As you can see from the trailer, the game takes place in a beautiful, natural environment, featuring grasslands, old ruins, and small villages. Nikki can change between several outfits on the fly, allowing you to adopt new abilities such as flying through the air, restoring damaged trees, and shrinking to ride on Momo, her cat companion. Other outfits let you fire projectiles at enemies, become giants, catch bugs, and catch fish. It wouldn’t be a modern sport without fishing.
There’s no word yet on a release date, but Infinity Nikki has been confirmed for Sony’s consoles in the future. What do you think about it? Glide into the comments section below.
