We were still in the summer of 2020 when Unknown 9 Awakening was announced by Bandai Namco as a next-gen project. At the time PlayStation 5 e Xbox Series X/S they had yet to come out but, almost three years after the announcement, the project seems to have literally disappeared into thin air.
What happened to Unknown 9 Awakening, so? Difficult to say since Bandai Namco hasn’t talked about the project for a long time now. The latest certain news about the game dates back to a short time after the official reveal that took place at Gamescom 2020: confirmation arrived that Bandai Namco had purchased Reflector Entertainment, the studio behind the development of Unknown 9. This move seems to suggest that the company Japanese bet with conviction on the project, but since then everything has been silent and nothing seems to suggest a return to the scene soon of Unknown 9.
According to the little and dated information available, Unknowk 9 Awakening is an Action/Adventure presumably set in the 19th century, in an alternate reality in which the world seems on the verge of self-destruction or transcendence. The teaser trailer shown at Gamescom 2020 impressed with a very evocative visual style and immersive atmospheres, but it is still a computer graphics movie no gameplay sequencesof which therefore nothing is known yet.
May 2023 be the right year to review the work of Reflector Entertainment in action? Hope is the last to die.
