[TGS 2017] Square Enix Announced ‘Left Alive’; From Armored Core’s Director and Metal Gear’s Artist
Square Enix announced a brand new game called Left Alive, with the director from Armored Core and artist from Metal Gear working on it.
Enjoying Tokyo Game Show 2017 so far? Well, it looks like we have a new game to look forward to from Square Enix, with the game’s art looking oddly familiar. Like something from Metal Gear.
Square Enix Announced ‘Left Alive’
Square Enix announced their newest game, Left Alive, during Tokyo Game Show 2017 in a first look teaser trailer. It is a brand-new survival action shooter.
The trailer opens with a shot of a hotel corridor straight out of The Shining, but instead of a pair of creepy girls, there’s a Christmas tree, and then a series of bullet holes popping into the corridor from an adjacent room. These are followed by an explosive of some kind and half the hotel vanishes, so the camera can pan over a thoroughly ruined cityscape. 3 futuristic helicopters carry mechs across the destruction. The whole scene makes being left alive seem like something more of an achievement.
It was revealed that, Left Alive is currently being worked directed by Toshifumi Nabeshima, who some might know from his other works, Armored Core and Chromehounds.
Also on the team is character design Yoji Shinkawa who has worked on Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders, and Ghost in the Shell: Arise and Mobile Suit Gundam mech designer Takayuki Yanase.
Sadly, not many details were shared in the reveal trailer, but the game seems to feature mechs and a post-apocalyptic world. A speculation might be that this could be apart of the Front Mission series, but we’ll have to wait for further details in the coming days.
Left Alive is coming to the PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam with a release window of 2018. Additionally, Left Alive is confirmed to release outside of Japan so no worries there.
Pokdepinion: When I first saw the game’s art, I really thought it was going to be a new Metal Gear game. Well, I still don’t have much thoughts on this game but it feels like things may get more interesting with the game as more information becomes available.
