That is over the top stuff right there. With the wolf battle he tries to shrug off the fire.
The thing is I wonder if it controls like Sekiro or Monster Hunter.

Obviously it looks good graphically, but holy crap those animations. I really hope this turns out to be as good as it looks in the trailer, because it looks incredibly promising.

Analyst Daniel Ahmad posted some more info on the game, and the company, on Twitter.

Some interesting info in there. Apparently this is the product of over two years worth of work. There will be 72 different abilities (to tie into Wu Kong's 72 transformations from the tale). Some of the inspirations are fairly obvious but they apparently took inspiration from God of War, Sekiro, and Monster Hunter.

Unreal Engine 5 + ray-tracing! 👍😃 ...4K/60FPS...the game will also support Nvidia's ray-tracing, DLSS technology as well as Dolby Atmos

the animation and combat look so fluid...totally feels like Sekiro...the dragon boss fight looked incredible!

Those environments are pretty insane. Only minor nitpick is the freeze/stutter in the action when you land a hit, but I realize that aesthetic is something that's kinda always been around in asian/japanese-developed fighting games going back to street fighter, mortal kombat etc.

As well, a lot of us are probably used to the fast-twitch, instant-responsiveness of your character in Dark Souls, so the fighting in this game at times feels like you're running underwater, like a sort of bullet time but faster. Probably just a matter of brain adapting.

Still looks epic, will play for sure. Will be jawdropping on a OLED in 4K, I reckon.

That looks pretty incredible. It has a Sekiro vibe, but it looks a full generation beyond. The snow effects alone are jaw dropping. I feel like everything is playing catch-up to the Demon's Souls remake (graphics-wise) and this is right there with it. Performance looks a little weird, but that might be a heavy dose of motion blur doing that. Either way, I'm very, very interested in this.
