Sony Interactive Entertainment and Ultizero Games revealed a new platform for the upcoming action RPG Lost Soul Aside during the PlayStation China press conference.
Creator Yang Bing announced in a video that the game is coming for PS5, also mentioning that the launch of the PS5 in China will open up more possibilities for local game developers.
We also learn the release date for China of the PS5 itself. It’ll launch on May 15, 2021. It’ll cost 3,899 yuan for the standard version with the Blu Ray drive and 3,099 for the Digital Edition without the disk drive.
You can check the video out below alongside another extensive look at Lost Soul Aside running on PS5 shared a few days ago.
If you’re unfamiliar with Lost Soul Aside, it was revealed back in 2016 as a solo project by Yang Bing himself, and it immediately drew attention from the industry due to its impressive visuals and animation.
The developer then went on to form Ultizero Games to continue the project under the umbrella of Sony’s China Hero Project.
Below you can read an official recap of the story of the development of Lost Soul Aside directly from the China Hero Project, in case this is the first time you hear about this.
“Yang Bing never knew that Lost Soul Aside can be one of the CHPJ selected titles when he put the very first demo onto YouTube, also he never knew the trailer he made can attract so much attention amongst global users. Back in that time, his answer to those people was: it might take at least 1 decade to finish the title because he was doing this alone.
Now to users, they may not need to wait that long to purchase the copy of the game.
So Yangbing came back to China, founded his own company called Ultizero Games and started hiring people all over China to accelerate the process of development.
So now, Yangbing is not alone anymore. He already has a team which has more than 14 developers, also he has China Hero Project’s support. More and more people walk together during his journey, everything is becoming better than before…”
