From Omega Force they trust the capabilities of the next generation of consoles
The Japanese studio, Omega Force, has accustomed us to send action games with a large number of enemies on screen. We talk about sagas as Dinasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors and more, that have always been games that have seemed limited in their abilities to combine a spectacular technical section with a huge number of enemies on the screen. Looking ahead, the new generation of consoles seems to give hope of being able to improve these elements, and since Omega Force rely on the capabilities of the next generation of consoles, it will allow them to reach a new level.
A new level that implies both graphic quality and number of enemies and speed in action. Details that seem to be decisive, but always have to balance, forced to trim so that everything fits into an experience that can be enjoyed. In an interview with the Producer and Director, Tomohiko Sho, at the Tokyo Game Show, there has been talk about this future and how it will affect the different Warriors sagas from Omega Force.
To start, Sho says that Warrior sagas games are seen as games where a group of characters fight, but he wants to describe it as «A simulation game on the battlefield». The difference may be more or less large in the concept, but now, Omega Force rely on the capabilities of the next generation of consoles, where it expects «We hope that with the next generation of consoles we can have these huge battle simulations with several armies», to give, “a more realistic feeling.”
It is a really interesting objective, denoting that in addition to having to limit options specific to the action, they also seem to have limited conceptual objectives. The producer comments that «We hope you really show the real stimulating feeling of being able to play this game concept. It’s what we really hope to see ». You can not think that Warriors sagas must overstate an approach that has been offering games for so long. But it seems that if more changes can be applied that can change the basis of the concept and deepen new areas.
It can also be exciting to know that Omega Force has plans to improve these proposals. But you have to wait, and much, for those new generation hardwares to materialize and be presented to arrive in 2020.
