Anime action game Project Eve is now called Stellar Blade, coming in 2023

The hack ‘n slash action fighter Project Eve, first unveiled back in 2019, has a new name and a release year. It’s now called Stellar Blade and will be a PS5 console exclusive (read: it’ll probably come to PC, too). Sony aired a new trailer (opens in new tab) during today’s State of Play that showed a nice chunk of combat.

We got our first good look (opens in new tab) at Stellar Blade last year during another PlayStation showcase. That trailer mostly showed off the melee side of its combat system that reminds me a lot of a Platinum game, but today’s showcase focused on the guns: arm-mounted machineguns and railguns, to be exact. It looks like between sword combos, players can take aim at any time to pelt enemies with bullets, too. It’s good to cover all your bases when fighting 15-foot ogres with two lava balls for hands.
