Tucked away in Square Enix’s E3 showcase was a little something for fans of Platinum Games. Their newest title, Babylon’s Fall, got a brief trailer. There’s no gameplay (of course) but just the name alone is intriguing. I’m a big fan of stories that tackle Biblical elements. El Shaddai is the best out of those that I’ve played. If this game is anywhere close to the level of greatness as that one I will be super happy.
The trailer itself is a countdown. Starting at CE5000 with the discovery of an energy source called “the Oversoul.” It goes all the way to CE5500, labeled Rebirth, and with the text “Led by the Nomads, humanity strikes back against God.” Very Shin Megami Tensei. But what kind of game this is we still don’t know. It’s safe to assume it will be an action game, but Platinum Games could always branch out so there’s no telling what Babylon’s Fall will actually be.
Babylon’s Fall launches in 2019. Are you excited by this new Platinum joint? Are you hoping it’s their usual action game or are you hoping they will branch out into another genre? Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Been a fan of video games ever since I opened up a Game Boy with Pokemon Yellow one Christmas far too long ago. I even taught myself to read by playing it! From then on, games and words have always been linked for me. I found that what I really liked about video games (and every other thing I owned) was the stories they held. I’m honored to be here, using my words to talk about the wonderful worlds that games can take us to.
