In arguably the most disturbing reveal of Sony's E3 press conference this year, Suda51 debuted a trailer for his newest game Let It Die. However, the ambitious auteur was also previously known to be working on the PlayStation 4 exclusive action title Lily Bergamo. What's more, the presumably bonkers brawler was set to release sometime this year, leading us to wonder what had become of the erstwhile title.
Well, in a recent Famitsu interview, the luminary stated that his original PS4 project evolved into the one revealed yesterday. He also confirmed that several of previous title's defining mechanics, including its asynchronous multiplayer, would be making their way into the new game. Finally, he noted that the original game's main character has been completely scrapped in favour of a character creation system.
In truth, we're slightly torn on this one, as everything we'd seen of Suda's first project showed much more promise than the ultraviolent and slightly gross trailer for Let It Die. At the same time, we're sure the divisive director had his reasons for making the switch. What do you make of this news? Were you looking forward to Lily Bergamo? Let it all out in the comments section below.
