Hey, are you looking for something cool,something a bit fresh,something most importantly that isn’t a sequel.

Well, we’ve got you covered with some cool,exciting, upcoming RPGs that are brand-new things,brand-new IP, or intellectual property.

So please note we’re not counting sequels or “Final Fantasy” or anything like that or even “Starfield”,because face it, that one’s been talked about to death.

Let’s highlight some weird, new stuff and get started off with number 10.

“Lost Soul Aside” is
actually not super new.

We originally saw this game in 2016.

We talked about it in a bunch of videos.

It blew us away because
it looked like a crazy,

triple A, action RPG that
was made by one dude.

Well, the game caught the eye specifically

of Sony Interactive Entertainment.

And when they got interested,

the project became much more complex.

More developers were brought on,

and the game was slated for
PC, PS4, and PS5 in 2020.

Since then, it’s gotten delayed.

The developers have only done

slight interviews here and there,

but we have seen a lot of cool gameplay,

and it is very flashy,
visually astounding,

and really unlike anything
we’ve seen before.


Honestly, if anything, it just looks

like an over-the-top anime
or “Final Fantasy” cutscene

like a pre-rendered thing,
but it’s the actual game.

Of course, we actually have to see it

or play it to believe it,

but we’ve kept our fingers crossed

for this one for quite some time now.

Next over at number nine, shifting gears,

we have a game called “Mercyful Flames”.

This is actually a
detective-adventure RPG.

And although it doesn’t
have a release date yet,

this PC indie game just seems really cool

just by the basic pitch.

You play as an inquisitor
in the Dark Ages,

and it’s up to you to solve
some gruesome mysteries.

The game’s detective-adventure
RPG elements

are actually inspired by
dark horror board games.

So it’s all about doing whatever it takes

to achieve your goals

and conversations with
people, interrogations.

You really have to choose if you want

to be sly, brutal, mean,

and even torture people
to get the right answers.

This game seems to be focused
a lot around interrogation

and even developing and coming up

with your own torture
devices to get answers.

According to the developers,
you’re actually going to grow

your skills through the power of God,

and the game is going to deal
with the occult, religion,

and just how gruesome and
sketchy life was back then.

This one just really caught our eye,

because it seems really inspired by,

like we mentioned,
tabletop adventure games,

but also just old-school PC games.

It seems really, really
cool, so keep an eye on it.

Next over at number eight,

we have “Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn”.

This game, revealed during

the Xbox Bethesda Summer
Game Fest event thing

is set amidst a world
ruled by the old gods,

and it looks to be an
action packed combo of magic

and gunplay and axe-wielding
and RPG elements that we like.

This is actually from the
developers behind “Ashen”,

a game that we really enjoyed,

but it seems like
“Flintlock” is going bigger

and crazier and a bit more triple A.

We’ve seen what looks to be
a pretty wide-open world,

READ  Arin is faced with the Japanese quiz of a lifetime

a bunch of different skills,
cool animal and enemy types.

And honestly, more than anything,
I kind of just wanna see

what else is going on with this world.

What’s really the story here?

‘Cause I mean, magic, guns,
swords, it’s a good combo,

but hopefully, it has some
cool lore to back it up

and really make it worthy of being an RPG.

From what we know, we’ll probably find out

when we get to check out this game

if it releases as they say early 2023.

Next over at number seven, we
have “Showa American Story”.

Now, this is a weird, quirky,
seemingly small studio game

centered around classic ’80s pop culture.

And it seemingly has a pretty wild story

and setting where America
has been overtaken by Japan.

And it’s really just a big change

to how everything goes down.

In it, the players take
the role of a young woman

named Choko who has apparently
risen from the dead.

And you’ll have to make a
journey across this new,

weird, strange, futuristic
America in search

of answers about what happened to you

and the events that have
just drastically changed

and messed up this world.

From what we’ve seen, it
looks like players can expect

a fast-paced action RPG
where you’re gonna tear

through tons of enemies
with melee, ranged weapons,

and possibly some vehicle action, too.

It just seems like an all over the place,

wild, and strange game.

So that’s why we’re keeping
an eye on it to be honest.

Next over at number six,
we have “Pixel Noir”,

a PC game that’s
currently in early access.

And it’s been in the
works for a few years now,

and it seems really promising, number one,

because it seems inspired
by some pretty cool,

old-school detective games.

It kind of reminds us of “Snatcher”

a little bit with some of the vibes,

but this is essentially a hardcore,

role-playing detective game
where you roam the streets

as a mysterious detective
plagued with hallucinations,

trying to solve mysteries.

You talk to people, you make decisions,

you even go to court,

and just basically run
your private eye business.

But you’re also engaging in cool,

classic, RPG style turn-based combat.

You have gear, which you can modify

and upgrade through RPG systems,

as well as allies on your team
that you can also upgrade.

It seems really promising.

The early access Steam reviews
are generally positive,

and between the RPG elements

and just the overall vibe and art style,

it just seems really sweet.

Next over at number five,
we have “Arise of Awakener”.

I mean this thing just
looks absolutely wild.

Look at it.

If anything, it’s really giving
me “Dragon’s Dogma” vibes,

which is definitely a good thing.

And it’s a similar setup.

It’s essentially a Japanese
game developer’s take

on medieval European fantasy.

So it’s gonna be super over-the-top,

and hopefully, as fun and
crazy as it looks here.

We’ve seen a couple of
different character build types.

Good old RPG-style nights
with brutal heavy attacks,

faster enemies with smaller weapons,

and even some magic-wielding enemies

which could really change things up.

This is going to have plenty of loot.

It’s apparently going to take
place in a fully open world

where you can ride around
on dragons or other mounts

READ  PlayStation has set out to make high quality VR gaming accessible to the mainstream

and go on a path of revenge and redemption

to become this magical awakened one.

Obviously, we need to know
a lot more about this game.

We’re still currently really only looking

at stuff that is slated as
early development footage,

but if they can pull it off,
it could be pretty sweet.

We’re hoping we see more
from this game in 2023.

Next over at number four,

we have another stylish action RPG.

This time “Project Eve”.

Now, you probably remember
seeing this one revealed

at a PlayStation livestream event,

and it was downright stunning.

The main character engaged
in combat with big,

sci-fi, weird enemies in
fast-paced brutal combat.

The whole thing kind of gave us

futuristic “Bayonetta” vibes,

and I think that’s a good thing.

There’s a lot of emphasis on parrying

and evading and being super fast,

but you’re also going to
be able to gain skills

and level up to take advantage
of more powerful armor,

AOE attacks, sweep
attacks, interrupt combos,

and cool stuff like that.

And really the other thing about this game

is just the graphics.

I mean, look at it.

It’s an absolute stunner

from the character designs
to the environments.

It kind of just screams ray tracing

and particle affects the video game.

Graphics don’t always
make a game, of course.

It’s all about the gameplay,

but sometimes, it’s fun
to look at pretty stuff,

and it seems like “Project
Eve” is gonna have that

but with some action RPG
combat stuff to back it up.

As of right now, we
know we’re gonna see it

on PlayStation consoles in
probably late 2022 or early 2023.


Now, next up at number
three, we have “Forspoken”.

This is probably one of the games

on this list that we know the most about,

because it’s releasing fairly
soon after a bunch of delays.

As of right now, the current release date

is January 24th, 2023.

And the reason why this
game has been on our radar

is really because of the concept.

It’s like a collaboration
between Eastern and Western dev.

So you’re gonna see some North American

and European influence,

as well as some Japanese influence

from all the people involved.

This is an open world,
action-adventure RPG

with really cool traversal.

I mean, one of the first
things we saw about this game

when it was codenamed
“Project Athia” was the fact

that the player can navigate
this open world super fast

and brisk like some sort of weird,

magical, parkour Doctor Strange.

And that really goes
with the combat, as well.

From what we’ve seen,
it’s all magic-focused,

and it’s all about
upgrading and fine-tuning

your character to cater
to your play styles.

It looks like she’s going to have

a ton of different attacks.

And we’re just really curious to see

how this one comes together.

We’re still a little skeptical,

’cause some of the combat doesn’t look

as interesting as we thought,

and we still don’t know
the main hook totally,

but some of the presentation elements

and the open world itself
has us really intrigued.

We’re looking forward to
getting our hands on this one.

Of course, we’re going to
make a before-you-buy video,

READ  We only play fun games now

breaking it down so you know what’s what.

And like I said, as of right now,

it’s releasing January 24th, 2023.

(dramatic music)

Now, down to number two,
we have “Lies Of P”.

Oh man, this one has been
absolutely top-of-mind

since it was first revealed.

This is essentially like
a “Dark Souls”-inspired

more “Bloodborne” style game
where you play as Pinocchio.

It’s like a dark and gritty
Pinocchio “Souls”-like game.

I think that’s the only
type of pitch you need.

We’ve seen the character
fighting against really cool,

kind of marionette-esque enemies
in a Gothic horror world.

And we really, really want more of this.

As much as people might
be starting to get sick

of “Souls”-like games, we’re not.

And especially, when it
comes with some cool,

Gothic horror presentation like this.

I mean, hey, if we’re not
gonna get “Bloodborne Two”,

I’ll take the next best thing.

And “Lies of P” so far
seems like it’s shaking up

to be something like that.

As of right now, we don’t
know when it’s coming out.

It’s probably gonna be a while,

but we’re really hoping 2023 is the year,

because it looks sweet.


Now, down to number one,

speaking of another
“Souls”-like, inspired game,

it’s “Black Myth: Wukong”.

This action-adventure RPG is
based around Chinese mythology,

and that leads to a lot of unique things

that we haven’t seen in
tons of games before,

especially in this genre.

Just crazy enemy types,
a seemingly gorgeous,

mysterious fantasy world,

and hopefully, lots of cool combat.

The main character seems super capable,

and all of the gameplay
clips we’ve seen so far

have been really, really impressive.

Props to developers for just
showing us straight-up gameplay

and not just flashy cutscene trailers.

We’ve actually been able to see
how some of this game works.

And while we still have
questions about how the world

and the loot and the
upgrading and skills work,

basic moment-to-moment combat

and dodging and parrying and attacking

seems really, really awesome
and tangible and fun.

This is an Unreal Engine 5 game,

and it looks really, really gorgeous.

And it seems like it’s gonna drop

on all the major consoles
sometime in 2023.


Well, those are just some cool, unique RPG

and action RPG games that we
wanted to talk about today.

We had fun yapping about these ones.

So we wanna hear from
you guys in the comments

what you’re looking forward to.

What do you want from a new RPG

that isn’t a sequel to anything?

Is it something like one of these games?

Definitely hit us with your
own top five if you got one.

But if you enjoyed this video

and maybe learned about a new game,

that’s all we’re trying to do here.

Mission accomplished.

So if you like that, click the
like button, it helps us out.

But as always, thanks for watching,

and we’ll see you guys next time.
