Here's a first glimpse of Deadly Premonition director Swery's enigmatic side-scroller The Missing
Back in February, Deadly Premonition director Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro introduced that he was engaged on a mysterious new mission, titled The Missing, and now, the first handful of screenshots have been revealed.
The Missing (or The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories, because it’s extra formally recognized) is being created in-house at Swery’s personal studio White Owls, at the side of Arc System Works. Swery’s different mission, English-village-sim-meets-murder-mystery The Good Life, is being developed by a separate crew at Grounding Inc.
When Swery first teased The Missing in a video earlier this 12 months, he defined, in suitably enigmatic trend, that the title had many meanings, “A missing person, someone who’s lost, or even something lost… Maybe it’s your loved one… or a place you belong.”
What he did not clarify, nonetheless, was the sort of Game that The Missing would possibly truly be. In fact, at present’s trio of screenshots do not precisely supply a lot in the best way of readability – however there’s a minimum of a suggestion of the shape it would take, with the two gameplay screens demonstrating some side-scrolling motion unfolding in a 3D world. There’s additionally some tenting.
Luckily, The Missing’s new web site is a little extra forthright, describing the Game as a single-player “action adventure”. What’s extra, The Missing is unlikely to stay a thriller for an excessive amount of longer – it is scheduled to reach on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC later this 12 months.
