Today in this endless summer of reveals, Sony gave us a glimpse at a new "PlayStation China Hero Project selected game" that's coming to PS4: F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch.
Billed as a "Metroidvania with arcade-style combat," the world has a very grimdark feel to it, with animals, steampunk gear and giant metal robot hands. While this came out of nowhere, the visuals are very impressive: to the point where it probably could have been highlighted in a major showcase or State of Play. "Arcade-style" is underselling it a bit too, as it seems like a full-on fighting game at times in the debut trailer.
Seriously, give the footage below a shot and look at the fur effects on that bear blacksmith. I'm getting extreme Strider (2014) vibes from this, which is great news. Although a lot of Metroidvania games don't stick the landing and can overstay their welcome, this one is definitely on my radar now.
