    If its narrated by Rucks again, day 1 purchase =P

    will still get it even if otherwise

    • Tohsaka

      Also, Ashley Barrett is reprising her vocal work for this title. You’ll remember her being Zia from Bastion.

        holy… that’s awesome!

  • Vince

    awww …still a year away from release. It does look pretty good from the trailer!

  • Ethan_Twain

    I could not be more enthusiastic about this :) The trailer immediately shows that this game will share the emphasis on great art stills and music that contributed so much to Bastion. These are also guys I trust to do a good job with a female protagonist, so that’s a bonus too.

  • Steven

    To think I originally dismissed Bastion as overrated… Cannot wait for more from Supergiant Games!

  • Xalsunwolf

    Whoa, what.
    Okay, Supergiant, give me a super giant indie gamer hug. RIGHT NOW.

  • Armane

    Looks cool, but that’s what I said about Bastion. Hopefully this won’t be all style and no substance.

  • Ovada Bey

    “Bastion developer” and “a sci-fi action RPG, starring a young woman wielding a powerful weapon”.
    I don’t need to see a trailer, I’m buying it xD

    • puchinri

      Lol, this.

  • JustThisOne

    Woah. I really like the aesthetics of everything. That crazy robot that splits into eye-robots was awesome! Cloudbank looks like a swell place to live, too. It manages to stay pretty colourful.

  • Cameron Ward

    hope its for the Wii U

  • Sperium3000

    This is… Beautiful.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Very cool. Definitely liking the sci-fi setting and the music was pretty awesome too. Looking forward to more info over the year.

  • Ishaan

    Heh. The sword totally looks like the Monado.

    • Ferrick

      and mid-game the true hero emerges! Ricky is out to score XP

    • Göran Isacson

      Actually I was thinking more like Donovan from Darkstalkers weird floating sword, buut the Monado works too.

  • Wenzel

    for the people who want Bastion look!

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Hopefully they make the gameplay a little bit more gripping. Bastion’s got boring quite quickly.

  • Alphabet Soup

    This looks fabulous and I’m all about more sci-fi RPGs~! Wonder who does the song…

  • gangrelion

    Is she trying to be a comic character when running but trying to be super badass when using the sword? This is weird!

  • Testsubject909

    Here’s hoping multi-platform PC and consoles, maybe PS4.

    Edit… Huh, now that I think about it… Think Steamworks will work better/be more prominent on PS4?

  • Pockystix


  • Elvick

    Hope it’s on PS something.

  • SuperBrother

    Wait, a colorful, fantastical, WESTERN sci-fi rpg? I must be dreaming… on the list it goes!

  • puchinri

    Oh my gawrshhhh. It looks so blasted pretty. I hope I get a chance to enjoy it, no matter what platform it hits~.

    Also, boss with the eye-wings made me think of 02. >u<;

  • Göran Isacson

    That was one insanely pretty trailer and game. If the game plays half as fun as it looks I am there.

    Also, was I the only one who got Donovan from Darkstalkers vibes from the ladys sword?… as well as El Shaddai vibes from the graphics?
