Wanted: Dead, from ex-Ninja Gaiden devs, announced for the PS5, Xbox Series, and PC

Announced during Tokyo Game Show 2021, Soleil and 110 Industries have introduced Wanted: Dead for the PS5, Xbox Series, and PC which is scheduled to launch in 2022.

The upcoming game will be helmed by Hiroaki Matsui (Ninja Gaiden director) and produced by Yoshifuru Okamoto (Ninja Gaiden II) and is a third-person action title that features some high-speed gun and swordplay.

A teaser trailer was shown with early alpha footage, so the gameplay looks understandably rough, but it does show a glimmer of promise especially with action coming from the minds behind Ninja Gaiden.

Here is an overview of the game courtesy of Gematsu:

Players assume the role of Lt. Hannah Stone, leader of the “Zombie Squad,” an elite team who work outside the purview of the traditional police force.

Taking inspiration from the likes of Devil May Cry and Bayonetta, a deep combat system will give you the opportunity to take on enemies up-close and personal, or engage with guns from a distance, with cool slow-motion sequences, and a limb-severing mechanic that changes enemy attack patterns adding style and substance to combat encounters.

Among the talented team working on the game’s finessed combat systems are developers that previously worked on Ninja Gaiden and the Dead or Alive series.Offering a change of pace to Wanted: Dead‘s adrenaline-pumping combat, non-combat sections and the chance for Lt. Stone to chill at the HQ to consume food and drinks for buffs gives the game intriguing variety, as well as offering players the chance to soak in more of its rich lo-tech science-fiction world.
