Today, during Sony Interactive Entertainment’s pre-Tokyo Game Show PlayStation Lineup Tour event being held in Tokyo, Cygames finally showcased a tease of its upcoming JRPG Project Awakening.
This was the same trailer showcased behind closed doors at E3 2018. At the moment the game has been announced only for PS4 and doesn’t have a release window.
According to the accompanying press release, Project Awakening features “cutting edge graphics” and a “high fantasy setting.”
“As part of the company’s ongoing drive to deliver the very best in entertainment, Cygames has assembled a development dream team to create the game, boasting extensive experience across a variety of much-loved videogame hits. Under the accomplished direction of Junji Tago (Director) and Ryosuke Aiba (Art Director), the team is hard at work on a title that aims to bring a fresh approach to the world of fantasy RPGs.”
If you’re unfamiliar with Cygames, the Tokyo-based publisher and developer is known for Shadowverse and Granblue Fantasy, and it’s also working on a rather impressive action-JRPG for PS4 codenamed Granblue Fantasy Project Re:Link, alongside the Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner – M∀RS remaster for Konami. It seems that both Project Awakening and Granblue Fantasy Project Re:Link are being developed with a western release in mind.
