Yeah LoD:R would be too big for Bluepoint... and let's be honest here, LoD is a niche game and not a juggernaut like FFVII, so I don't see a revival of the IP happening anytime soon (as sad as it is)
Lol i dont think polyphony would let them touch GT. And it sounds like more than a port so... yeah. That would rule out the others.
I sort of agree,but after playing the PS3 version of Shadow of the Colossus I thought the same...then we got the PS4 version,which was fantastic!
I guess they could include a straight remaster to get less heat from that crowd. Would let them to take a few more creative liberties as well.The more I think about this the more I talk myself out of it being Demon's Souls.
It's such a "core gamer" type game I feel there will be so much toxic bullshit thown at whatever they do with it...from art style changes(I mean,remember Wanders face nonsense),to god forbid they make gameplay changes or even add new levels.
Personally,I trust them to do it,Shadow of the Colossus proved their talent...but this is not a casual game for everyone and I don't think many of the audience for it would really even appreciate a new version because any changes made would be an anathema to them.
I agree with you, and I said the same thing about Shadow of the Colossus, but... welp! Not that I ever played the remake, but it went down a treat by and large, so what do I know.
If the talk from Bluepoint was "our next game is a remaster" then I could see it being Demons's Souls...but this re-imagining talk makes me think it could be something else.
Yeah ICO surely isn't a "big" game. Demon's Souls or Legend of Dragoon would make way more sense. Metal Gear 1+2 (not Solid!) would be the best though, but I don't see that happening with modern Konami. It's Demon's Souls anyway. With the broken warpstone intact :)I agree with you, and I said the same thing about Shadow of the Colossus, but... welp! Not that I ever played the remake, but it went down a treat by and large, so what do I know.
I really don't see how you remake ICO as a AAA production unless you drastically change things though. It's such a small, contained and intimate experience. It doesn't have the grandiosity of SotC. So I would be really wary if Bluepoint's next game did end up being ICO.
I agree. I'd love to see Bluepoint develop a whole game themselves but probably not picking up the sequel to a cult hit, at least not as their first development.I hope it's not cross-gen. I mean it would still look great, but I want built from the ground up for PS5 as a showpiece. I guess the only plus is that cross-gen would basically guarantee native 4K/60fps. Sony mentioning them yesterday almost kind of implies a PS5 exclusive.
I would not be confident in that no with From involvement. Same for any Bloodborne sequel idea without them. No studio has been able to match From so far and I definitely would not place that task on a studio that has never made an original game before.
What's complicated about the rights? Doesn't SE own everything LoK related outright?
So the world might be mended.
revamp item burden
Would Bluepoint creating a sixth archstone be the first time they will have created new content from scratch?revamp item burden
streamline or better explain upgrade paths
some balance changes (magic slightly less insanely powerful, scraping spear)
modernized online features (higher cap of players, maybe add something akin to covenants)
Then that just means we get two potentially great games. The DeS remake by x developer and whatever “big one” Bluepoint is working on.
