Ah I guess this is what he's been working on ever since Scalebound got canned
There being an actual release date hopefully means this can finally be the first post-2016 PG game to actually get released :/
I don't know what this is but I want it.
Not gonna lie, when I first saw this, I legit thought it was going to be Xenoblade Chronicles X 2.
This is looking kind of lit. Between Kamiya, Taura, and Masakazu Katsura on character designs this has my interest already.
This game is straight up my alley. Looking forward to it.

This looks great.
I too think it looks neat.
It's by no means an instant buy, but I will be following news and reviews of this game as it gets closer to the date of release.
I'm just interested in what the hell's going on in this game, both in terms of story and gameplay.
Looks like a fusion of Xenoblade X and Zero no Kiseki.
I am in.
Looks cool. Since the villain talks about how the playable characters were born a certain way, and they look like male and female versions of the same person, I'm guessing they're genetically modified clones? Either way, the game looks intriguing and I love cyberpunk, so I'm optimistic.
I am very curious as to what’s up with the Stands & what being chained means for them.
Also doing more relatively mundane police work sounds fun.
that hand posing made me erect
Anyway, Jojo's Bizarre Police Adventures seems neat. I'll probably get it.
Page created for the game.
Nothing gross about doing hand poses with specific camera angles. Hell in my mind I already hear the sfx of the Legion summoning devices making those "clank" noises you hear in henshin hero shows.
I actually said those exact words out loud while watching the trailer. Strange minds and all that.
Game looks incredible. And beyond just being a badass action game, they're really being coy about the chained stand thing. It gonna have a really unique control scheme, mayhaps?
Really the only complaint I have is the femprotag's standard-issue police hot pants. Not that I'm against policewomen wearing hot pants, of course, but it's blatantly silly while she's standing right next to her male twin wearing a more complete uniform.
That's how you can tell this is anime.
Over-sized impractical looking gear & women's uniforms showing off more skin than actually necessary.
I mean even in real life police only wear shorts if their in like a hot or humid climate. While that place looks pretty chilly.
I also noticed when they are using their Stands their hair turns blue. Curious if were're getting other colors.

Well everyone else seems to have pants, so meh.
Anyway, the combat looks spectacular. If it uses environmental damage the way it seems to present that could make for some dynamic battles. Like dropping some stairs on people's heads and stuff.

I do wish the girl had pants...
And I also wish it had been a trailer for Xenoblade X 2...
But hoo boy I am pretty damn stoked for this.
New IP from a developer known for for sick action games is always hype.
Power Rangers SPD the video game?
So are we just not going to talk about the adorable dog mascot that picks up trash at the end of the trailer?
I don't remember seeing that in the direct. Maybe I was riding a P* overload.
I don't think that scene was in the Direct actually. It is in the You Tube upload of the trailer.
