It was back in July this year during the PlayStation Indies Initiative reveals that Sony confirmed that F.I.S.T: Forged In Shadow Torch would be heading to PS4. The game had previously been confirmed for PC. Now, a new trailer for the game has been released confirming that F.I.S.T: Forged In Shadow will also be getting a PS5 release, alongside the PS4 and PC versions. The game has also been given a release window of Spring 2021. The latest trailer shows some new gameplay including fast paced combat, and platforming sections. You can check it out below.
F.I.S.T is a metroidvania built around an arcade combat system and chaining together combo attacks. TiGames’ Yang Xiang explained:
It is built around the trio of weapons Rayton brings with him into battle: the mechanised fist, drill and whip.
Each has its own unique features and combo chains. The fist is a good all-rounder with the easiest combo strings of the three. The drill is slower to deploy but deals out the most damage. In direct contrast, the whip isn’t as powerful but is lightning quick and also boasts the furthest attack range. Yet you will need to become adept at using all three to survive your travels through the dense cityscape.
The game is set in a once peaceful dieselpunk city, its animal inhabitants having lived in harmony until the Machine Legion took over and plunged it into darkness. Rayton, the silent bunny protagonist is forced to act in order to save his friend, who’s been kidnapped by the Legion.
