Good luck to them. I think people (including myself) are getting un-necessarily hyped/positive for this game without seeing gameplay because they like wuxia and samurai ascetics. But... well... I also like wuxia and samurai so yeah good luck to them. Let it be good.

Yeah the risk is that it doesn't release, but China's been hit harder than other countries by COVID restrictions over the past few years.

Highlight of the show for me

Hoping it releases and is good.

That said... I was watching Sacred Symbols and they said there was already a Phantom Blade game before this that released and so that gives me more confidence.

Biggest surprise of the show but it's from a no-name chinese studio? It's like Sony can't secure any high-profile deal anymore.

I hope it doesn't disappear after reveal like all the other chinese trailers.

They showed action but we have no idea what the gameplay was like, whether it was all CGI or if they just deleted the hud. Like are they pressing a single button to do those combos (Bamham) or are they doing specific button combo combinations? Is the real game going to clutter the screen up with shit like numbers popping out of the enemy whenever you hit them or giant health bars? That all could make or break the game.

The trailer looks like a spiritual successor to Sekiro. Hope it's good. Not too many teams have successfully copied the From formula.
