“Incredible” and “Breathtaking”
Enthusiastic fans are piling up in the comments. One of them thinks the trailer is “incredible”, another “breathtaking”. Another user considers the game to be an upcoming GOTY candidate. The combat system in particular has impressed many viewers and the optics have also been praised by many.
Incidentally, instead of an open game world, you walk through linear environments. Director Hiroshi Takai justified that through the importance of the plot and the characters. A great story is more important to the development team than a lively open world, which would have required a great deal of effort.
