Phantom Blade Zero, developed by S-Game, is a hack-and-slash RPG set in a dark, fantastical world. The game first caught attention during the PlayStation Showcase in 2023. Since then, it has been eagerly awaited by fans of the genre. The newly released trailer offers a closer look at the game’s fluid combat mechanics and the visually stunning environments that players will explore​​.

In Phantom Blade Zero, players assume the role of Soul, an elite assassin. Soul works for a secretive organization known as “The Order.” After being gravely injured, he is saved by a mystical healer. However, the healing is temporary, giving Soul only 66 days to seek revenge on those who wronged him. This intriguing storyline promises to deliver a thrilling adventure filled with dramatic twists and intense battles​​.
