EA and Koei Tecmo are partnering on a new title that they are describing as “the next wonderful searching match.” When I 1st read that description, my thoughts jumped to Big Buck Hunter, the arcade series of looking video games in which you shoot wild animals, but hunting at the notion artwork (above), mixed with who’s earning it, I’m guessing this sport will actually be substantially a lot more like Capcom’s common Monster Hunter sequence.
In a press release, EA and Koei Tecmo describe this new video game as an primary IP that “delivers a genuinely AAA practical experience primarily based in fantasy feudal Japan.” It will be designed by Koei Tecmo’s Omega Power, which is acknowledged for the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors “musou” motion video games. And a statement from an EA exec Jeff Gamon claims Omega Power is “merging their tested expertise for battle gameplay with unanticipated and impressive mechanics.”
All those aspects, taken with the “hunting game” description, counsel to me that the developers are most likely performing on some thing with Monster Hunter-design gameplay, in which you crew up with other gamers to just take down gigantic monsters. Big Buck Hunter, on the other hand, is in essence glorified goal practice. A spokesperson for EA didn’t straight away respond to a request for clarification, so if this does transform out to be teasing a Japanese video clip recreation equal of Cabela’s, I’ll update the article to let you know.
Regretably, EA and Koei Tecmo did not share substantially additional about the sport, so we never know when the match will be produced or what platforms it may possibly be accessible on. On the other hand, Gamon states that the match will be released “later this month,” so we may well not have to wait way too a lot more time to find out far more.
