Isekai Leisure, a Seattle-based indie studio, launched the primary trailer for its upcoming motion sport Sword Reverie, a JRPG-inspired title that seems like a heartfelt love letter to the favored anime/manga Sword Artwork On-line (SAO).
Drawing from Japanese video games and anime reminiscent of Legend of Zelda, Ni No Kuni, and SAO, Sword Reverie is alleged to comply with a character-driven story and embrace JRPG-inspired skills and physics-based fight (further factors for the cool hand-drawn explosions).
Right here’s the setup, as described by Isekai Leisure:
After a thousand years of peace, the boiling tensions between the “kingdom of man” and the basic lords proceed to escalate. Seeing that the specter of a catastrophic battle is imminent, the Guardian Magnus makes use of his powers to summon you the “Hero” to his realm, to turn out to be his new apprentice.
The Guardian explains to you, that he believes the Elemental lords have grown too highly effective and as legend goes, solely a “true hero” from a faraway land, can convey stability, peace, and prosperity to all of the realms.
Sword Reverie doesn’t have a launch date but, though it’s coming to PC VR headsets by way of Early Entry on Steam and the Oculus platform someday in 2020. The studio says PSVR and Quest might also be potential additions at a later date.
Beta entry is coming quickly, which may be requested on the studio’s web site.
