Rise Of Incarnates is a great looking new fighting game from Bandai Namco, famed for the Tekken and SoulCalibur franchises, in which players take control if Incarnates with mythical powers and beat the crap out of each other in real-world cityscapes.
The back-story is a typically silly, but entertaining affair and fittingly, some of it can be read in comic book for on the main website. The Incarnates are humans who have been gifted mythical powers by meteorites that fell from the sky, after that it goes a bit X-Men, with regular humans fearing them and Incarnates fighting among themselves. There’s also a mysterious voice that has spoken to the Incarnates, delivering a cryptic message “To avoid certain destruction, you must defeat the Sovereign of this era.”
With their own interpretations and reasons for fighting, the incarnates enter the fray. This means a multitude of super-powered characters beating each other up in 2 vs. 2 matches across some beautifully rendered and half-destroyed real world locations. The diverse character types are promised to have unique skills and powers and appeal to a variety of play-styles while accommodating expansive team dynamics and strategy in the 3D Battle Arenas.
Rise of Incarnates certainly looks very impressive, if the gameplay matches the visuals, this could be a super-human smackdown of epic proportions.
