Project Eve studio Shift Up CEO gifts the entire staff with PS5s for a successful unveiling, giving them all an early Christmas present!
This was one of the best looking games at the PlayStation Showcase for me. Reminded me of Bayonetta and Ninja Gaiden.
It looks like Bayonetta 4 on steroids - which is awesome!
This game looks awesome and very bootyliciously promising! Heheh.. Anyone know if it's exclusive or multiplatform? Just curious..
Beyonetta WISH it was like this game.
Especially with her hair. Can you imagine current gen Bayonetta with cutting edge hair tech?
@army "This game looks awesome and very bootyliciously promising! Heheh.." Isn't it weird the game and all involved in making it haven't been canceled by the internet for the dimining depiction of women yet? I mean where's the Kotaku/Polygon piece calling out these misogynistic devs??? :/
@UltraNova That kinda thing seems to be becoming less popular. Seems like people are realizing that it turns people off and backing away from those sorts of narratives, thankfully.
Agreed. One of the top video games to want to play out of the entire PS Showcase.
Guy buys entire staff of 260 PS5s. He’s clearly got connections. Seems like a great CEO to work for! Game looks amazing.
I see everyone mentioning Bayonetta and other games, which I definitely can see of course. Yet I'm surprised no one mention Vanquish, like when she was going through the green and orange tunnel sequence.
The creator of Bayonetta is the same as Vanquish so that's not a surprise.
Astral Chain too. That starts with a shoot em up bike scene. I probably thought of that first as it's been so dam long since i last played Vanquished. But as Chevalier said, same developer. It simply looks like a badass game that Platinum would make and it certainly appears to use their formula. This game was one of the highlights for me. Definitely looking forward to seeing more, getting a date and my hands on it. Just hope they deliver.
Vanquish...what a joy of a game that was. We need more games like that
and the ass from Lara Croft! ;)
I started screaming thinking somehow we were getting bayonetta outside of the Nintendo switch lol but the game looks good, definitely keeping an eye on this one.
Best a... ever created...itagaki must be jealous hahhaaaahaaaa
no wonder people can't find any ;) that's a nice surprise for all those employees.
Damn the downvoters are butthurt haha.
it was only a joke :P I was serious about the second part.
Right. I mean the little wink shoulda been a dead-ass giveaway
I wonder if they had to pay scalper prices?
It's kinda messed up, but my first thought when I read that headline was just "how??" How did they get their hands on that many PS5's? Who's their dealer?
This game was severely overlooked at the showcase for obvious reasons but I loved it, looks bloody fantastic and will be a day one eventually.
What is the obvious reason? I guess it wasn't obvious to me, lol.
Wolverine Spiderman 2 God of War KotoR
That's a hell of a list but this game definitely looked good too.
I'm not even interested in any of those big titles though.. But this definitely caught my eye!
That's really cool and generous of the CEO. Project Eve looks like a really sick action game. Definitely got Bayonetta and Devil May Cry vibes from it. Solid trailer.
I thought it was a Platinum Games title. I mean, it looked like a Bayonetta spin-off or something, which is good, I think.
Tbh, not a bad thing, but I immediately knew it was a Korean game and not platinum, but likely a dev that is looking to games like Nier Automata, Bayonetta and Devil May Cry as inspirations. Something about the styling is extremely Korean about it. Maybe the character design. Maybe the glossy look and lighting style. Maybe the colour choices etc. Don't know, but it definitely didn't feel like a platinum games title from watching, but something inspired for sure
Cant wait to play it, the industry is sorely lacking classic arcade style hack&slash games these days.
A fabulous gaming console gift.
This game looks like what Bayonetta has always tried to achieve. I truly couldn’t stand Bayonetta because it felt unpolished and the bugs were crazy in 1. And 2 never really seemed to take it to the next level but just polished the shortcomings of 1. But this game looks slick, polished and much tighter in controls and presentation imho. Really looking forward to this when it releases
I'm really looking forward to this game. :D
I thought this game looked really good . I’m surprised more people aren’t talking about it. Boss fights look fun , combat looks tight . Count me in
I just hope soon receives an actual release date, the trailer looked effing great and the combat super fluid and stylish, freaking loved that tunnel sequence! , not to mention her very nice protagonist ;)
I love hearing about companies treating their employees well. It’s so rare nowadays
Coming out for PC as well, I'll wait for the best looking version as usual 😀 That is of course if the game gets great reviews.
You feel proud? Why are there always one of you in every article? Why can't you just be happy for both PS5 and PC? What we see running on PS5 looked amazing. Congratulations that it will let look amazing on your PC as well.
Not really, I have a Switch as well, it's just that out of almost every gaming news story, that if a game is on multiple platforms with the PC being one of them, they refuse to put it in the spotlight even though it will be the best looking version. I can understand if the game was only on PS5 or X series X and you can then pick which version will look the best and then showcase that. But if it's on PC it will always look best, they hardly ever give it props. Remember I do have a Switch but I always put that dead last in terms of graphic fidelity.
Nice ass,. don't know how I feel about it,.. if it looks half as hood moment to moment,.. it is insane.
Looks very very polished
How.. Where did he get 260 ps5's?
Seriously. I figured if I could find one I should go and buy a lottery ticket.
You'd probably have more luck winning the lottery
Maybe directly with SONY!! who knows?
Now i know where all the PS5 consoles went.
Jesus is God
So thats where all the PS5s are......
Nintendo drags their feet to get Bayonetta 3 out the door and Sony answers they can get it done.
This is Shift Up not Sony, this is a multi platform game. Sony just chose to show it at their conference.
This and Square-Enix's games were the games that caught my interest more than any game being shown, including God of War (powered by PS4 Pro) Ragnorok. I think theres a reason this is the last of the current series, theyre already tired of it. They wanna do something else.
This game is FAAAAAAAAAAAR better than Beyonetta and Ninja Gaiden. The quality is on a whole nother level. You guys comparing are delusional. This game is much more special.
You have no way of knowing if that is even true, do you? Have you played it? The graphics look great, but gameplay is important, and I'll tell you right now, there are very few such games with "FAAAAAAAAAAAR better" gameplay than Bayonetta or the new Ninja Gaiden. To say this game(obviously a game that will live or die by its gameplay) is far better than both those games is to also imply that is has better gameplay than games like Nioh 2. I truly wish this were true, but I'll have to see it to believe it. You don't just stumble into this genre or industry and start making 3d fighting games as intricate as Team Ninja or Platinum Games. Those are huge shoes to fill, and to imply that any random game is "FAAAAAAAAAAAR better" before it even came out probably isn't something I'm going to trust. That said, I do wish you were correct. That WOULD be awesome, but sounds unlikely. IMO, the stars wound need to align for a game like this to be that good.
The game is looking great but I hope it's not lifeless and just a dull hack n slash.
Looks like lock-on with parrying, dodging and well timed strikes. Im sure some hack & slash for lower level enemies will be there, but the moment I see lock-on I think of skill.
Ok and where The eff did he get all of them? Cause I have been looking since it came and sold out.
This game is way up my alley. I prefer fighting, melee, dodging, parrying & reversals way more than I do just running around with a gun & shooting. Can't wait for this.
Normally I'd say just give them cash bonuses, but given how hard PS5s are to come by this is pretty awesome.
So the japanese companies has recently jumped on the woke train. Korean companies is the lifeboat now?
It's definitely on my radar now and I love Bayonetta and love the idea of kinda Bayonetta with realistic graphics. It is on my radar now for sure, so those PS5s were well earned.
damn nice boss!
If they change the character design because of complaining video game journalists, I can't buy their game. I so want to play this though.
