Is it possible for a game to be simultaneously “charmingly wacky” and “gruesome?” See for yourself in the latest trailer for Tokyo Jungle, which launches on PSN in North America on September 25.
This trailer for The Unfinished Swan from PAX 2012 delves into the Sony-published, Giant Sparrow-developed game’s mysterious plot. While no specific release date has been revealed for this PSN-exclusive game, the game’s official site indicates it will launch some time in 2012.
Way of the Samurai 4 will let you create a ronin and explore post-isolationist Japan starting August 21 in North America. The PSN-exclusive PS3 game will be available for $39.99.
While the premise is all about joining up with the shogunate, the isolationists, or the new immigrants, and experiencing the power struggles between the three groups, we’re fairly confident the moment-to-moment gameplay is going to have more to do with swordin’.
Speaking of which, you’ll be able to upload your created character for distribution in others’ games, as a wandering, AI-controlled assassin. Other players’ characters will roam your game, offering up items to anyone who can defeat them.
Monolith Productions has one of the most varied histories in video game development. The studio first cut its teeth on first-person shooters, finding a cult hit in the popular No One Lives Forever series. Then, it was a vast experiment with The Matrix Online , before coming back to shooters with the Fear and Condemned series of games. And now, the company’s trying to reinvent itself yet again with two licensed downloadable titles for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment: first Gotham City Imposters from earlier this year, and now Guardians of Middle-earth . Guardians of Middle-earth is a weird one. It’s a licensed Lord of The Rings title, starring characters from Tolkien’s series. It’s a MOBA game, similar to League of Legends or DOTA 2 , featuring Tolkien’s characters fighting it out across a battlefield full of AI-controlled troops. And it’s a complicated, deep online multiplayer title, designed for competitive play. “What’s so weird about that?” you ask? It’s being developed only for consoles.
