Ready At Dawn to Reveal “Something Different” Soon, Most Likely Their VR Title

Published

 on

Ready At Dawn founder, Andrea Pessino, has said on Twitter that Ready at Dawn will be revealing something new soon.

While the first theory likely whirling around is that it will be a sequel to The Order 1886, it seems that may not be the case. Pessino promises it will be “something rather… different”.

Pessino also responded to a question about if the title contains numbers saying, “I don’t see any numbers at all”. Unless if it is an entirely new direction for The Order, it could be a new IP altogether. The announcement, however, most likely relates to the VR title Ready at Dawn announced in 2015 via a job opening and confirmed later in a Twitter post which can be seen at the bottom of this post.

As of yet there is only a mild suggestion, based on a fan question’s phrasing, that the unveiling will be occurring at E3. Pessino meanwhile left the announcement time to a vague, only saying “soon”. So await in anticipation for us there ready to report on the, hopefully, new single player VR experience Ready at Dawn is putting together.

Judgment Producer: Friendship System Makes Yagami “A Much More Deeper Character”

Published

Judgment

Judgment producer Kazuki Hosokawa has discussed new introduction of the friendship system and its effect on creating Yagami’s deeper character.

Judgment shares a lot with the Yakuza series, and, as it turns out, both games were in development at the same time. Players will go back to the streets of Kamurocho, but this time as a dynamic detective named Takayuki Yagami in a new courtroom-thriller narrative. Players will have to subtly follow suspects and search crime scenes for evidence. Judgment will suit Yakuza fans, but casual players should not miss it.

In an interview with Twinfinite, Hosokawa shares more details about the introduction of the friendship system, and the effect on Yagami’s personality.

When asked about why he chose to develop the friendship system, Hosokawa explained the main reason is to reinforce Yagami’s character.

The friendship event actually developed when we were thinking about how to solidify the character of Yagami… Interacting with the townspeople that are also living in Kamurocho gives Yagami a much more deeper character.”

Hosokawa is significantly trying to focus on depth of character for Yagami. His aim appears to be to create a fully dimensional protagonist who draws players into the story. Therefore, using aspects like a home neighbourhood and friendship events help to create simple everyday examples of relationship and character building.

Whilst Hosokawa is predominantly used to making games for PlayStation, he indicated that Rya Ga Gotoku Studio is considering making internal preparations enabling easier switching to the PlayStation 5 for future developments.

“We are definitely thinking as a studio and considering the changes in the platforms… we want to utilize these new specifications whenever we are developing anything new.”

However Hosokawa also did not rule out the possibility of cross-platforming Judgment by porting the title to other platforms.
