Koei is known for its strategy games and its endless hack n’ slash sequels. One thing it’s not really famous for is its RPG library, so I’m very eager to see how Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll fares when it finally arrives. A brand new trailer has been blasted from Koei’s PR knob all into our media mouths, so enjoy the sweet blog drippings.
The video shows off gameplay for (I think) the very first time, and it’s certainly not the turn-based JRPG I was expecting. In fact, the combat shares more than a few visual similarities with Dynasty Warriors, in that there’s a lot of hacking and a lot of slashing going on. While I guess I had to expect that from Koei’s internal Omega Force studio, I really was hoping for more of a dramatic departure.
We’ll have to see how it goes. Hopefully the combat is more “RPG-esque” when one actually gets their hands on it. Nevertheless, I’m always keen to see Omega Force take a creative break from Dynasty Warriors, so I look forward to seeing how this game develops.
