This is one of those game concepts you'd never think of, but makes total sense once you've heard it. An open world adventure game about a girl who swaps between various outfits to use different traversal and combat abilities seems like a solid idea. It's exactly what you'll be doing in Infinity Nikki, just announced for various platforms including PS5 and PS4.
Chinese studio Papergames has been making "dress-up adventures" in its Nikki series for a number of years, though only on iOS and Android. Infinity Nikki will be its first attempt to bring the idea to consoles, as well as adopting an open world setting.
As you can see from the trailer, the game takes place in a picturesque, natural environment, featuring grassy plains, old ruins, and small villages. Nikki can change between a number of outfits on the fly, allowing you to adopt new abilities such as hovering through the air, restoring corrupted trees, and shrinking to ride on Momo, her cat companion. Other attire lets you fire projectiles to fire at enemies, become giant, catch bugs, and go fishing. It wouldn't be a modern game without fishing.
There's no word on a release date yet, but Infinity Nikki is confirmed for Sony's consoles in the future. What do you think of this one? Glide into the comments section below.
