Phantom Blade Zero feature-2

Here are 24 minutes of gameplay from the “Devil May Cry meets Sekiro” action RPG, Phantom Blade Zero

IGN has shared a video, showcasing 24 minutes of gameplay from Phantom Blade Zero. In this gameplay video, we get to see the game’s dark art style, fast-paced combat, and a Kung-Fu punk style that blends traditional Wuxia combat with a unique fantasy flair.

According to the devs, Phantom Blade Zero will not be a new Souls-like game. Instead, players will have at their disposal various combos to use. They will also be able to stagger their enemies, similarly to Sekiro.

If I had to describe the game’s combat, I’d say it’s a mix of Devil May Cry and Sekiro. I mean, even the devs themselves said that they were inspired by DmC.

For those wondering, Blade Phantom Zero will be coming to PC. S-Game confirmed that back in February 2024. To be more precise, the game will be available on both Steam and Epic Games Store. However, we don’t know whether its playable demo will be exclusive to PS5, or whether it will be also released on PC.

There are currently no Steam and EGS pages, so you can’t Wishlist or pre-order the game yet. Plus, S-Game hasn’t shared the game’s PC requirements.

Finally, Phantom Blade Zero will be powered by Unreal Engine 5. However, we don’t know whether or not it will support Lumen or Nanite. We also don’t know whether there will be support for NVIDIA DLSS, AMD FSR or Intel XeSS.

S-Game hasn’t shared any more details about this game. Nevertheless, I really like what I’ve seen so far. And, since this won’t be another “Dark Souls” clone, you should keep an eye on it.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
