It looks janky as heck in this debut trailer, but there’s certainly promise in the Shibuya-set REYNATIS. Announced during the Japanese edition of this week’s Nintendo Direct, but coming to both PS5 and PS4, the FuRyu published affair is being helmed by high-profile Square Enix alumni Kazushige Nojima, Yoko Shimomura, and Yasutaka Kaburagi.

The premise isn’t exactly original, but it’s a compelling one. Set in modern-day Tokyo where magic exists, two protagonists clash over whether these powers should be used freely without constraint – or bound by order. It looks like this will factor into the gameplay, as when you’re exploring the civilised world, using any magic will see you suppressed by a police-like faction known as the MEA.

It’s all a bit Harry Potter in terms of plot, but the art direction is 100 per cent Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. There’s no worldwide release confirmed yet, but considering how scrappy the first gameplay footage looks, we reckon this might end up better once the developer’s had a bit of time to patch it up a bit. Nevertheless, the Japanese date, as mentioned in the trailer, is locked for 25th July.
