Last month they teased a new game with a art trailer and later on scans leaked from a magazine and now Bandai Namco finally revealed the game. Judging by this trailer it looks to be very similar to Dark Souls or let's say Soulsborne. But with an anime look.

Platforms for some reason are yet TBA but they do say it's coming to major home consoles in 2018. So I'm hoping this developer/publisher sees Xbox/Scorpio as major too.

I've never liked "Souls" or "Souls-like" games so I guess I'm out for this. Looks interesting though.

I thought that as well until I played Nioh. Haven't actually gone back to try Dark Souls or Bloodborne since then so maybe just a one off but we'll see.

It's rather odd that they haven't announced the platforms yet. It's really not out of the question that MS gets to announce the game for their console during their E3 show. Similar to how they always had Dark Souls trailers during their show if I'm not mistaken.

I guess Bamco could also mean Switch with major home console but looking at these graphics I'm thinking that's not it.

I'd bet money this is a Steam & PS4 only game.

This does look cool. I love the way they are rendering the "toon" look. Nice, and how the new Dark Siders should look, imo...

I'd rather be playing Killer Instinct.

Looks okayish. I don't find the enemy designs particularly interesting (Not really interested in fighting bipedal aardvarks). The one character also gives me a Tokyo Ghoul vibe.

I liked it. Would like it more without the anime art for the main character but I'm all for Dark Souls knock offs.

Game is coming to Xbox One, PC and PS4. Game will be Xbox One X enhanced. Also, here is the new trailer that just came out:

I like quite a bit of that. My only issue is the voice acting. How are we still getting this anime dub style VO? blech.

Looks good...the female narrator at the beginning sounds like the person who did the voice for Lightning from FFXIII...keeping an eye on this one.
