Square Enix unveils exclusive look at Platinum Games Babylon’s Fall on the Square Enix presents summer showcase.
Square Enix Ltd. unveils during the summer edition of Square Enix presents an exclusive look at BABYLON’S FALL™, developed in partnership with renowned action specialists, PlatinumGames Inc. (NieR:Automata™).
Background of Babylon’s Fall
In Babylon’s Fall we become a group of warriors known as the sentinels, bonded with special equipment called Gideon Coffins, and throw themselves into an odyssey to overcome the titanic Tower of Babylon, within which sleeps a great legacy. In addition to weapons wielded in both hands, characters can use the power of their Gideon Coffin to equip two more, allowing for combinations of up to four weapons at once. The capabilities of different equipment will also bring endless variation to the strategy that can be employed. The game’s visuals are achieved using a newly developed “brushwork style” to create a unique fantasy setting with a medieval oil painting aesthetic. The game can be played in parties up to four* and will feature a range of post launch game modes at no additional cost. More details will be revealed throughout the year and player recruitment for closed beta testing is now open.
Square Enix also released a special behind the scenes look at the development of Babylon’s Fall. The video features interviews and insights from the creative teams at Square Enix and Platinum Games, including director Kenji Saito. The short version you find blow.
