The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan
Ahead of the release of the first game, Man of Medan, on 30th August, take a look at our newly released trailer teasing at the urban legends behind each game in the Dark Pictures Anthology.
Our first urban legend, the story that the Man of Medan is based upon, is of the SS Urang Medan, a Dutch Freighter disappearing in 1947, with all crew reported dead. Man of Medan makes its own interpretation of those events that players can unveil throughout the game.
ONE PUNCH MAN: A HERO NOBODY KNOWS
Today’s trailer displays ONE PUNCH MAN: A HERO NOBODY KNOWS’ Free Battle Mode where players will fight in teams of up to 3 characters. The goal will be to defeat each enemy combatant, whilst selecting the right character at the right time to stand as the victor.
In order to harness Saitama’s insane strength, the game will also introduce a unique concept in this mode – The Hero Arrival System.
Players will have to meet a number of criteria if they want to play as the strongest hero. In order to make Saitama selectable, they will need to choose two fighters first. When the fight begins Saitama’s team will have to survive until his arrival despite the numerical disadvantage. Combos or perfect guards will remove time on the counter. When the Caped Baldy finally enters battle, one punch should be enough to pacify any situation!
Three additional characters have also been confirmed to be part of the final roster, respectively 2nd, 3rd and 4th of the S-class ranking:
- Terrible Tornado: An Esper wielding psychic powers capable of crushing displays of power.
- Silverfang: Beneath his old man appearance lies a seasoned martial art expert.
- Atomic Samurai: He is regarded as Earth’s best sword master and one of the strongest heroes, even within the S-rank class.
