We've liked the look of Phantom Blade Zero from the very start, and this most recent trailer has really got us back in the mood. To celebrate the Chinese New Year, developer S-GAME put together the above video, and it's an incredibly stylish teaser with some brief looks at gameplay towards the end.
Most of the trailer is made up of an anime-style scene in which two warriors meet each other on a bridge. With a raging thunderstorm in the background, the pair stand off, and we see (presumably) memories of past battles before they clash for real. This gives way to the aforementioned snippets of gameplay. It might not be the best look at the game itself, but it's still very cool.
Phantom Blade Zero will receive a demo on PS5 sometime in 2024, and we can't wait to take the game for a spin. Are you looking forward to this one? Let us know in the comments section below.
Having grown up alongside PlayStation, Stephen has developed an eclectic taste in video games and a wide knowledge of the medium, from small indie gems to the biggest AAA blockbusters. Ever hopeful that the Burnout series makes a miraculous return.
Happy about the demo being announced. The gameplay they showed previously almost looked too good to be true.
I’ll wait on a demo to see how I feel about it. Hopefully the demo is soon. I like what I’ve seen so far. Love the music in the trailer.
This continues to look very cool. The demo will be appreciated
Looking stylish and probably another game to add to my growing list!
It's good that it's getting a demo so we can know exactly what kind of a game it is. Is it a Soulslike game or something of that sort? If so, I'll gladly pass, but this will be a good way to finally know. The trailers for it have been fantastic, but we know very little about the game as a whole.
Wow, that trailer is certainly stylish. Unfortunately until the last few seconds it looks like a promo for a new anime show. When the gameplay actually shows up it looks good, but could be mistaken for a completely unrelated piece.
And samurai styled action games seem to be coming in droves now. As with other genres in video gaming, there appears to be a rush to the hot popular subject matter and then we get oversaturation. I’ll keep an open mind about it though, but with Rise of the Ronin coming this year along with Black Myth Wukong, and presumably Ghost of Tsushima 2 on the horizon (or more likely “Ghost of [such-and-such place]), not to mention recent 2023 releases like Like a Dragon: Ishin, and Wo Long, we’ll see if Phantom Blade 0 can distinguish itself.
It happens with other genres too, like the deluge of Norse themed games in recent years, the rush in Souls-likes, or spike in survival horror releases all in one span (Callisto
