Square Enix Drums up Hype with Bombastic New Trailer for Left Alive

Published

Left Alive

Left Alive, which releases in Japan tomorrow ahead of a Western release of March 5, has a wild new trailer.

The trailer, which again highlights the game’s Metal Gear Solid inspirations, is doused in a B-movie-inspired sense of characterisation and drama. Primarily, the trailer focuses on the game’s characters, including its three protagonists.

Accompanied by a gloriously cheesy soundtrack, Left Alive exudes AA goodness. Visually, the title lacks polish, but its underlying systems seem promising.

Set squarely in the Front Mission universe, one half of the game’s focus in mech combat, which appears to draw from another Kojima masterclass: Zone of the Enders.

The title’s second state is in stealth combat, complimented by an open-ended level design that encourages player agency.

Despite being published by Square Enix, Left Alive has strangely flown under the radar. Hopefully, its systems and sense of humour will carry the game through, as initial impressions point to a significant lack of polish.

For those impressed by Left Alive‘s bombastic aesthetics, the game is set to release on PC and PlayStation 4 on March 5.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
