    100% dark souls inspired with a dash of witcher 3 and a hint of samurai. And his name is William....wtF? Geralt of Okinawa

    Looked like it has some potential.

    Outside of being an ARPG doesn't give me any other souls vibe though for reasons previously mentioned.

    could be, i see they put Gerelt as the main character.


    it reminds me of souls a little bit, even if it is i'd enjoy more games that took inspirations from the Souls and kings field games

    its a cross between W3 and DS2. When you kill someone looks like you get souls ?

    Look more like an Onimusha reincarnation rather than a Souls-type game. The main character are pretty smooth and efficient with his attack, unlike Soul's weighty attack system. Also it looked like the guy can dynamically counter enemies' attacks, which to me is another glaring difference in comparison to the Soul game. Maybe the game will have that Castlevania-style exploration and super tough bosses.

    Definitely getting a Souls & Onimusha vibe from this :). Two of my favourite game series ever.

    the reason i don't see it as a souls game is because there's no sense of weight. the character moves pretty freely/quickly and without restriction, in souls games the weight/equipment affects your mobility and speed both in movement and in attacks. this actually reminded me of another game series that is probably closer to this than onimusha- genji. yeah, genji + ku-on seems more appropriate.

    onimusha- genji? wasn't that more or less a hack and slash?

    i mean this seems like an RPG/ adventure.

    genji is action/adventure with some rpg elements. this trailer doesn't show enough to determine if its an rpg.

    Looks nice, but I'm not getting the Geralt angle. Kind of takes the immersiveness out of being in ancient Japan if thats the playable character, just looks out of place. Hopefully there are other playable characters that look like actual Samurais.

    You should really put something about Samurai in the title of this thread. I skipped right over it until it was mentioned in another thread. Had Samurai been in the title I would have jumped over myself opening up the thread.

    Looks like it was originally going to be a Dynasty Warriors clone. I'm happy with the direction they're going, I'm just hoping we see a Western release.

    The game has been in development way longer than both those series I believe. It was just in development hell for a long time.

    Also this looks nothing like the Akira Kurosawa vision that I had pictured. Was hoping for something more tradition, what is the this Puck Faerie bullshit at the end?
