Bandai Namco’s presentation at Tokyo Game Show 2022 was filled with several exciting announcements, both relating to new games and updates for existing titles. While much of the hype for the presentation was directed at the newly-announced Tekken 8, Bandai Namco also announced a new third-person shooter called SYNDUALITY, due out in 2023 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC. In addition to the official announcement, the publisher released the first details of the game, including its world, characters, story outline, and a first teaser trailer. Check them all out below.

According to Bandai Namco, SYNDUALITY is a new large-scale science fiction project themed around the “crossroads of humanity and artificial intelligence.” Set in the year 2222, SYNDUALITY explores the relationship between the two in a collapsing world. The separate anime project is set twenty years after the game, sometime in the year 2242.

SYNDUALITY is a PvPvE (player versus player versus environment) third-person shooter in which players pilot an armed vehicle called a Coffin. Players fight for resources on the surface of the collapsing planet with the help of a partner called the Magus. In the year 2099, a poisonous blue rain called the Blueschist rained down on earth, continuing for weeks. The aftermath of the event called “The Tears of the New Moon” was the annihilation of 92% of the world population. The surviving humans abandoned the surface to build the underground city-state of Amasia.

More than a hundred years later, Amasia has become a prosperous city, but an incident stemming from the unknown caused it to collapse overnight. You play as a Drifter named Alba Kuze, who spends his days roaming across the hazardous earth aboard his bipedal mech called the Cradle Coffin. Accompanying him is his Magus, the AI named ADA.

SYNDUALITY is the latest new intellectual property from Bandai Namco, and like its other offerings, it seems to be another multimedia project that will not only include video games but anime and more as well. Code Vein, another relatively new Bandai Namco IP, has recently been announced for a sequel, thanks to its success after its release in 2019.
