The PS4 is lacking somewhat in beat ’em ups. But that’s going to change, as developer The Game Bakers has announced a new title called Furi, which will be released for PS4 and PC in 2016.

This is a beat ’em up, but a rather strange one. The trailer you see above gives you a nice outline of the game. It seems to have a slight sci-fi look to it with a unique graphical style. Furi has been described by its developers as a “beat ’em up with a difference”, and creator Emeric Thoa has been speaking about it on the PS blog –  stating that his dream game would be much like a never-ending boss fight. 

As such, you’ll have many tough encounters throughout the game, and he also stated that “you’re fighting with reason”. Then he continued on:

“It’s a game that teases you before the fight, while you walk toward your fate, the same way you would be pumped up and stressed before a boxing match. As you do, you’ll start to piece together about why you’re here and what you’re fighting for.”

So far that all sounds pretty cryptic. From the trailer, it seems to have a similar look to Suda 51’s No More Heroes, which was a pretty epic game with some incredible boss battles. I’m sure the games’ creators will be teasing more about the game over the coming months and well into 2016, so consider my interest piqued!

Hi guys, The names Toby and I'm from the UK, I'm 26 years old and I've had a huge passion for the gaming world pretty much since birth. My first gaming console was the NES and I've got my parents to thank for that one, since then I have been gaming non stop, mainly on Nintendo consoles and handhelds but I've recently branched out into Sony's world and I'm playing a lot of Steam games. My favourite genre's are probably JRPG's, Platform, Action/Adventure and I love games with a good story, things like The Last Of Us, Ni No Kuni, the Professor Layton series. I'm a massive Zelda nut, always loved the franchise, the characters and the different art styles, not to mention the music. Apart from gaming I enjoy going to the gym, reading and general socialising. Quite a big film buff as well and I love my music and the cinema! That's me in a nutshell anyways, look forward to chatting games with you all! :)
