Studio Ghibli-Inspired Exploration Game Sable Premieres With Stunning Trailer

Published

 on

Sable, the narrative-focused exploration game by Shedworks, showed off a new pre-alpha trailer at E3.

Sable is a desert exploration game, which forgoes combat in favour of rewarding lore and story. The player will take the role of a young woman named Sable as she ventures to explore a world littered with massive architecture and fallen space ships. Along the journey, she will learn more about the people, culture, and history of the world she inhabits.

The art style is entrenched in the clear line style of French and Belgium comics, along with the Japanese animation, most notably Studio Ghibli. The developers have spent considerable time working on the rendering engine, which attempts to mirror the same sense of wonder evoked when watching a Ghibli film.

The trailer’s music is a new single by Japanese Breakfast, who will soundtrack the entire project.

Konami Willing to Make More Remasters

Zone of the Enders Konami

Konami has said that it is willing to remaster more games if fans ask for them.

During an IGN interview at E3 about Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars, Konami brand manager Benjamin Kinney expressed the company’s willingness to produce more remasters:

“Eventually if you’re loud enough and you speak with one voice, anything is possible.”

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars is a remastered version of the PlayStation 2 game featuring a new VR mode, coming to PC and PlayStation 4. The title was initially announced at Sony’s Tokyo Games Show in 2017.

The remaster will come native at 4K with recreated textures, updated particle effects, and new control schemes to name just a few of the many improvements across the game. The title also includes a new Very Easy mode so players can experience the story.

The most notable addition is VR support. Playing Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars in VR will put the gamer in the cockpit of Jehuty, the character’s giant mecha. Konami has recreated the cut scenes and assets to contribute to an immersive situation. The developers have worked with first-party VR companies such as PlayStation VR and HTC Vive to refine the game, making it as smooth as possible to reduce any chance of motion sickness.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars has a gallery mode with VR where users can tumble and look at various models in game. The game will sport “next-gen audio,” supporting Dolby Atmos and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.

The first game has not been remastered for the PlayStation 4 nor VR, but if the fans ask for it, Konami may listen.

4K and VR demos are available on the PlayStation Store to download.
