ChinaJoy 2019 begins today, and with it comes a whole host of titles from China-based developers as the country’s biggest gaming expo runs the whole weekend. There are tons of games that are featured, so be sure to stick around for our coverage of everything announced at this event, especially seeing as China is starting to gain footing in video game development – and that means more great games for everyone.

Another game to have its trailer dropped is the action RPG AI-LIMIT, which is being developed by Palm Pioneer’s Sense Games as part of PlayStation's China Hero Project initiative. The game will be showcased extensively during ChinaJoy this year, and attendees can get their hands on playable demos at the event from August 2 to August 5. Check out the trailer below.

Yeah, I’m thinking AI-LIMIT is a Souls­-like – and not a bad one at that, either. There’s also some very obvious Nier: Automata vibes going on, which definitely works to its favor. Add a bit of horror elements with the foreboding music and dark environments, and this is definitely looking to be one of the better action RPGs I’ve seen announced this year.

AI-LIMIT will see you control a heroine named Arrisa as she relies on her abilities to save a world in the far-off future. There’s some pretty in-depth customization going on as well, as you can change Arrisa’s headgear, body wear, limb wear and other components. Doing so also adjusts her abilities, in addition to tailoring her design to your liking.

The trailer showcases some neat weapons and combat mechanics, which are filled with acrobatics and lots of weaving in-and-out. According to the press release, combat mechanics will run off different weapon stances, which reminds me of the same system used in The Surge. It’s a pretty challenging mechanic that incentivizes experimentation, so I can’t complain either way. AI-LIMIT will also have multiple endings, all of them depending on the choices you make and their impact on the world.

A release date for AI-LIMIT has yet to be announced, although the game is currently in development only for the PlayStation 4.

ChinaJoy 2019 will run from August 2 to August 5. Expect more coverage from us as soon as it releases.
