Loved ABZU and it looks like they've done a thing or two to improve the gameplay while maintaining the stunning visuals. The only game revealed tonight that I absolutely know that I'll buy day one and love.

ABZU was a really pretty looking product, but barely north of an interactive screensaver gameplay-wise.
I'm wondering what we should expect from this.
The gameplay trailer didn't really make it look particularly interactive nor strong on the player-agency side.

Since I can't say anything new regarding Princess Mononoke, I'll say it looks like how Shadow of the Colossus felt when riding Agro and fighting the colossi.

ABZU was sick this looks better and has combat and platforming? The animation especially the running ones are insane. Looks fun to just move which most of my favorite games do. 2nd best thing from this TGA behind Joker-chan.

Ironically enough, this game looks like it's on-rails, or a "path" if you will.
I'm not sure. I think it probably has some kind of guidance system to streamline movement. Like, you can walk around with full freedom, but once you start running & tracking a big monster (or those glowy bits the player was shooting at), it might guide you along a dynamically generated path. Kind of like how in Shadow of the Colossus, once the horse got running, it sort of had some auto cruise control. That way the player has freedom to move the camera around and aim with the bow & arrow, without needing to the steer the player too much or risk running into trees and rocks.

This gives me Princess Mononoke vibes. Looks neat. I was disappointed by ABZU though despite being excited for it initially. Pretty game but not much substance to it. Hopefully there's more to this one.

Annapurna published and by the team behind Abzu, but it's PS4 console exclusive. That's really unfortunate. Guess it could still come to Xbox, wasn't Abzu announced as exclusive at first as well?

I was wondering what Giant Squid was doing since the release of Abzû. Great to see something new is coming next year.

Loved Abzû and not surprisingly, the artstyle in this game is awesome. Not much info yet on gameplay but consider me very interested.
