While the world binge buys courtesy of Black Friday courting our basest urges, the remaster luminaries at Bluepoint Games have offered yet another tantalizingly tease.
The studio is behind some of the most successful remasters in recent years. Notably in the form of the excellent Shadow of the Colossus PlayStation 4 remaster.
We’ve known since early October that the developer is behind the first confirmed title for Sony’s next-generation PlayStation 5 title, but we’ve yet to know what the game is. The news emerged in the same article offering our first deep dive into the PlayStation 5, implying that Bluepoint is working closely with Sony. All we know is that it’s a ‘big’ one.
A tweet sent on Halloween suggests Bluepoint is lining up not one but two games, with wording that pointed to Demon Souls, Metal Gear Solid, The Legend of Dragoon, Syphon Filter, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night as likely contenders.
The latest hint comes in the form of a tweet authored in the early hours of last night. It offers yet another cryptic poetic riddle for onlookers to sink their teeth into and craft theories.
It’s easy to read into it based on what game you want to see remastered. Keyboard sleuths can extract references to Demon Souls. As well as some to The Legend of Dragoon, and even Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
The general sentiment behind the riddle is that Bluepoint is bringing classics back from the dead. There are also themes of thanks and appreciation in keeping with Thanksgiving.
One line in particular, ‘Soon, the beast freed from jest’, suggests we can expect some form of an announcement in the not too distant future. With The Game Awards just around the corner on Dec. 12, we could be in for an unveiling sooner rather than later.
If that doesn’t happen and going by previous teases marking seasonal festivities, we can expect another tweet on Christmas day.
Whatever happens, we tip our hat to Bluepoint for mastering the art of the cryptic tease. The GIF of a dog failing to snatch morsels of food through a glass table attached to the tweet shows the developer knows exactly what it’s doing. If there’s any doubt, we’re the dog.
