F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch Is Now Coming to PS5

F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch popped up at The Game Awards last week and confirmed that it will also come to PS5 next spring.

As part of The Game Awards, we got yet another look at F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch. The action-platformer brings heaps of style to the table. I mean, it’s hard to get better than an angry bunny rabbit who has a massive robotic arm on his back. Only time will tell if this is a Bionic Commando situation and the rabbit and arm are linked in unexpected ways. Regardless, the new trailer shows a game that is shaping up well. Give it a look below.

In F.I.S.T., you star as Rayton, a battle-hardened rabbit who wants to rescue his chums from the Machine Legion. To do so, you’ll engage in over-the-top arcade-like combat using Rayton’s three main weapons: the fist, a drill, and a whip. The battle system is built around using all three to create visually-enticing combo chains. Of course, it’s hard to know if the system will be satisfying without getting hands-on. That said, everything looks good, at least. Only time will tell if the gameplay can match.

Regardless, I’m something of a sucker for anthropomorphic animals in media. It’s probably all that Star Fox I played as a kid. The style in F.I.S.T. reminds me of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. That game was my Game of the Year in 2018, so I’ll always pay attention when something uses similar visuals. Obviously, these are very different games, but I’ve been sold on giving this one a try.

F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch is set to launch sometime in spring 2021. When it does release, the game will come to PC, PS4, and PS5.
