Impressive PS4 Exclusive Action RPG Reborn Debuted, Kickstarted

At Tokyo Game Show last month, I got an early peek at Elemental Labs' Reborn, an action RPG with a sci-fi twist that they're aiming to put on both PS3 and PS4 next year. New publisher acttil hosted an event where Elemental Labs' Franz Tissera, CEO, showed off his last year of work on Reborn and announced a Kickstarter campaign.

Reborn is an interesting mix of old and new, folklore and sci-fi. It pulls from the history of Japanese swordsman Musahi Miyamoto and works the famed tale into a bit of a futuristic retelling. They've set this story in Neo-Tokyo, a world where huge corporations rule, and body augmentation is a regular thing. (PS4, REBORN)

The concept art for this game is absolutely gorgeous. Definitely impressed by what I've seen so far
abzdine  +   600d ago
not even PS2 had this many quality games announced before it released!
amazing
Army_of_Darkness  +   600d ago
Since the ps4 is much easier to develop for, I'm sure we are gonna see shitloads of exclusive titles coming from japan Unlike this gen:-D

To be fair though, there isn't a lot of exclusives at launch yet either.
Magicite  +   600d ago
Oh boy, if PS4 reaches at least 80% of PS2's success, then it will be amazing.
I knew that Sony wont fail, new exclusives will be coming one by one non-stop, they dont want to announce everything at start, so the hype grows steadily.
EXVirtual  +   600d ago
@Armyofdarkness, exactly. That's what excites me most about this gen.
UltimateMaster  +   600d ago
Really Impressive.
If they can make this happen on the PS4, then it's truly next-gen.
Enemy  +   600d ago
This is some seriously incredible art direction holy god!
egidem  +   600d ago
The exclusives just keep on coming! ...and I thought I would conclude this gen with enough for next gen's games and exclusives.

Clearly I was a FOOL.
creepjack  +   600d ago
The PS2 had a horrid launch lineup. seriously, it did. Almost any console had a better launch line up then it.
pkb79  +   600d ago
speaking of ps2 i want a new Onimusha game.
KwietStorm  +   600d ago
Well PS2 had a pretty boring launch lineup. I think the best thing about the indie explosion is it's bringing creativity, diversity, and "risks" back to the mainstream market.
Ame_No_Shiryuu  +   600d ago
anybody knows when the kickstarter funding begin..?, i couldn't find any info yet...
Neixus  +   600d ago
Indeed, look at hands of the monster, he's holding a person. Huge badass bosses confirmed?
specialguest  +   600d ago
Definitely love the concept art. It looks like a cyber samurai punkish world with a blade runner city look.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   600d ago
This game looks beautiful holy crap lol.
AlphaTauri  +   600d ago
did the image of the polygonal character display the boss would be increased to over 20k Tris? Is that for for ps3 or PS4?
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   601d ago
game after game after game
Godmars290  +   600d ago
Though this one is coming through Kickstarter which means its coming in low quality. That it would be better if it was coming in with Sony's support and likely more polish.
Ame_No_Shiryuu  +   600d ago
do you know when will the kickstarter funding begin..?, i couldn't find any info yet...
Hicken  +   600d ago
How does it being Kickstarter-related directly impact its quality? I'm sorry, but I don't see the positive correlation.
Godmars290  +   600d ago
@Hicken:
At the very least, it being an independent production that relying on outside funds beings its level of quality into question.
DOMination-  +   600d ago
Has there ever been a good (big budget) kickstarter game?
Godmars290  +   600d ago
@DOMination:
Kind of my point: all of this is early production with a kickstarter which which hasn't even started or announced its goal. We've just heard about high targets for what they hope to do.
KwietStorm  +   600d ago
So that automatically means low quality now? How ignorant is that?
jmc8888  +   600d ago
Star Citizen says hi and disagrees.

In fact, it's the opposite.

@KwietStorm:
I said nothing like that. This whole thing, on the fan side, is just another case of overly high expectations however.

@jmc8888:
Yes. This dev team has as much if not more general recognition as the Wing Commander people. Its exactly the same situation...
MultiConsoleGamer  +   601d ago
Impressive, most impressive.

No talking!
Neixus  +   600d ago
I like their adaptive a.i.
''the game's social perception system, which has the game changing based on how you approach it. Careful players might have an easier time in the world, where as your guns-a-blazin' player could have, for example, NPCs reacting in a more hostile manner''

Lol at the fact that microsoft says only the clouds can make an a.i improvise.

But damn, sci-fi ninjas? this sounds like a game for me =D
showtimefolks  +   600d ago
MS says a lot of things just ignore them since they won't reliever half of them anyway. It's MS slogan we will over promise and under deliver
RVanner_  +   600d ago
Looks interesting
nick309  +   600d ago
Ill wait for gameplay rather than be impressed and hyped for concept art.
andibandit  +   600d ago
I did some further research and found its a kickstarter game being developed from the CEO`s garage. Not really getting my hopes up.
aawells07  +   600d ago
Thats kinda what i was thinking rather than act fake and pretend its the most amazing ive ever seen. Concept art for all games "looks" cool but the final product is a different story.
Bathyj  +   600d ago
Is it just me or does PS4 seem to be getting a lot of 3rd party exclusives?
ShinnokDrako  +   600d ago
Yes it seems so. I keep seeing news about PS3/PS4/PSVita lately, from platform to RPG/JRPG and so on. Good thing, we're going to get many games to choose from (and many genres).

P.S. It's funny that you got disagrees when there are lot of articles that prove it. I guess if there was a "Sony and PS4 are shit and i hate them" next to Agree/Disagree/etc, you'd have those clicks on that. The Xbox fanboys are always so funny ;)
QuickdrawMcgraw  +   600d ago
That's what happens here on N4Xbox.
chrissx  +   600d ago
Keep em coming sony. Ps4 era is gonna be insane

Wow reminds me of warframe with the whole cyber ninja theme.

Looks very nice.

20k triangles for each character is impressive?!

ryse is 85k for each one and was called downgrade LOL

the artist sketch are good done..but this dosnt mean nothing

bobtheimpaler  +   600d ago
ROFL. This guy is hilarious. He is so insecure about the Xbox one that he has to compare this game that has a kick starter budget of 150,000 to ryse.
Bathyj  +   600d ago
The reason lots of people don't care about Ryse has nothing to do with the number of triangles it has.
MrSwankSinatra  +   600d ago
instead of calling it ryse how about they call it X-Y-A-B. since that's what you'll be doing through the whole game. pressing the same four buttons.

LoveOfTheGame  +   600d ago
Not trying to be a dick, but don't almost all action games focus on the four main input buttons.

What's next we call GOW X-Square-O-triangle. smh
FlameHawk  +   600d ago
@LoveOfTheGame, lol no, I remember playing God of War 3 and I was using all the buttons to attack including R1,R2,L1,L2, it had so much variety because of the god powers kratos stole.
But Ryse on the other hand, LOL press B to win.
#9.3.2 (Edited 600d ago ) | Agree(9) | Disagree(3) | Report
LoveOfTheGame  +   600d ago
^^^
That doesn't stop the game from being primarily X jump, Square hit, Triangle power attack, and O grab. You use those buttons the most with really, I believe, R2 as power and L2 as item.

Those four buttons are not the only used buttons and neither is it for Ryse. If your real qualm is with the QTE, then make fun of that, even though they are not mandatory and you can kill enemies without them just like GOW.
wenaldy  +   600d ago
Oh shit, this dude again. Go back to Neogaf and get yourself banned for good.
windblowsagain  +   600d ago
TheKayle1

Ryse does not have 85k triangles for each character.

It has that for the main character.
pyramidshead  +   600d ago
lol dat kayle opinion.
SoulSercher620  +   600d ago
Ryse is a boring QTE game while this actually looks good. Keep hatin.
aawells07  +   600d ago
Have you played either of these games? Link to gameplay on Reborn?
Magicite  +   600d ago
So now we are measuring fun by triangles?
Bowzabub  +   600d ago
It also has 85,000 X button prompts....

ziggurcat  +   600d ago
85k for just the main character, not the NPCs....
T2  +   600d ago
yay for Ryse or I could just buy the new dynasty warriors LOL , not to be a dick, but its not a groundbreaking new concept for a game... looks fun but seriously some people think every new game is the second coming of jesus.
BallsEye  +   600d ago
@ziggurcat

Wrong, 85k for all characters including NPC's. It was showed in slides and talked about plenty of times.
ziggurcat  +   600d ago
No, it's only for the main character.
MysticStrummer  +   600d ago
Main character.

That's why it was so funny to see people comparing Ryse's main character polygons to Killzone's NPC polygons.
AlphaTauri  +   600d ago
I noticed that too, Kayle1. I thought maybe this was for the PS3
DigitalRaptor  +   600d ago
I've seen you with your trolling on Neogaf, Kayle.

Get out of here.
kenshiro100  +   600d ago
What does Ryse have to do with this? I smell insecurity.
twinspectre  +   600d ago
where's the kickstarter link ?? :(
matrixman92  +   600d ago
on their twitter they said they want to get everything together first and then start the kickstarter next week. This might be the first thing ive ever helped fund. Although im worried and wondering why this game only needs 150,000 to be made. That is almost nothing if you have a full team working on it; which it looks like they have.
clearelite  +   600d ago
Good point, but hopefully they were just excited to get started and that was the minimum they needed with their lower overhead.
Knowing perfectly well that it might reach $1,000,000 or more if word got out, they will possibly offer more and more awesomeness as the pledge thresholds keep rising.

That is why I'm fan of PlayStation plenty of games to choose from. Only bad thing is sometimes you want them all. ^~^

Most of the time for me.
ZHZ90  +   600d ago
I really like it, I want to see a gameplay.
EXVirtual  +   600d ago
Sounds badass. I'll see if I'll support the Kickstarter. So many games from the PS4 to choose from.
zeroskie  +   600d ago
Looks 100% amazing
cunnilumpkin  +   600d ago
THIS is what we need!

I admit I have been hard on the ps4 because the launch titles (to me) are underwhelming

I want unique JRPG's, ARPG's, exclusive western rpgs and then I am all about buying a ps4

but if its just an exclusive shooter and a bunch of games I can get on pc for less money with better graphics, then I can wait

this is what ps4 (and xbox1) need to be successful in my book!

bring on the exclusives!!
cell989  +   600d ago
looks very legit
Shakengandulf  +   600d ago
150,000 doesn't sound like a lot, even for a kick-starter.
But... whatever helps them i guess.
tulholdren  +   600d ago
RPG Check Sony Exclusive Check will keep my eye on this.
tawak  +   600d ago
xbox lovers would say:
look like crap, not even close to our exclusive like titan fall, ryze, forza and halo! lot more to come! ps4 is for kids! and xbox just announced they going to increase the gpu by 10! BOOM! end of story! -- xbox fanboys desperation mode

Looks like you're desperate by writing this kind of comment. Looking for any reason to justify your console choice?

looks like your deperate to defend your x-done. i knew your likes you will sooner or later will react. you guys are timed bombs.
isarai  +   600d ago
i cant find any info on this game besides the concept art
ZeroX9876  +   600d ago
I love the artwork
and
MORE RPGs!!!! I just want a whole lot of RPGs on my PS4. it's the main reason why I'm still playing my PS2 up to this day.
JRPGs got so much replay value for me. can't wait to see this game in action.
DigitalRaptor  +   600d ago
Concept looks outstanding for sure. Day one support from me.

Hopefully we'll get to see some great, dynamic systems sooner rather than later.

My mouth is drooling... Cannot wait for the Playstation exclusives. The art looks amazing and would awesome as desktop wallpaper, but concept art is one thing and actual game play is another.
