Let me just start of with saying I love Dragons. I also love action games, especially from Platinum studios. So when I heard they were making a game were you had a Dragon for a Companion, I couldn’t wait to see what they had in store for us gamers. Then I saw the main hero, he had headphones. I was sad. To me he looked like a big dork. After seeing the E3 footage, I am yet again excited for this game. Still not thrilled with the headphones, but the Gameplay looks magnificent and the hero is growing on me, plus Dragons. So yeah. Right now it is scheduled to be released, March 2017. I am really looking forward to getting my hands on this title. After all this is the company that gave us the crazy fun Bayonetta, one of the best action games made in the recent years. Here are some screenshots and a little bit more about the game, from its press release.
