For those in attendance at Gamescom 2022 or are just looking forward to what’s on display, Bandai Namco Entertainment has outlined three games that will be a focus for them at the event – Park Beyond, The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me and One Piece Odyssey – the latter two being playable for the first time at the event.
Park Beyond is pitched as a “brand-new take on theme park management simulation, developed by German-based studio Limbic Entertainment”. As a visionary architect, players will take on the fantastic task of building and managing every detail of their own amusement park with a twist.
The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me is the fourth game in Supermassive Games’ anthology of standalone interactive drama survival horror games – following their previous annual releases of Man of Medan, Little Hope and House of Ashes. In The Devil in Me, the Lonnit Entertainment TV crew receive a pressing and mysterious phone call from a man called Granthem Du’Met, with a promise of a tour around a faithful recreation of the H. H. Holmes murder castle, an idea that Lonnit Entertainment founder Charlie Lonnit believes might just save his show.
Finally, One Piece Odyssey transports the Straw Hats to a mysterious new island where they will embark on quests and engage in exciting turn-based battles against powerful enemies and massive bosses. In the game, players take on the role of nine of their favorite pirates, playing as Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Franky, Sanji, Usopp, Nico Robin, TonyTony Chopper and Brook.
