First Look At Phantom Blade Zero Controller Layout & Off-screen Gameplay

Here’s a first look at the controller layout in S-GAME’s upcoming action role-playing game, Phantom Blade Zero.

In addition to the controller layout, brand new off-screen gameplay footage for Phantom Blade Zero is also available for fans to check out. It shows an in-depth look at the game’s combat mechanic and other systems. It is a Souls-like title, with focus on challenging battles and boss encounters.

The protagonist has the ability to dodge, block/parry (including perfect block), perform light and heavy attack, and use his bow as well as other weapons for long-range offense. He is also seen scaling walls in the footage, after which he is able to perform an aerial attack. Much like in the Soulsborne titles, enemies can also be stabbed from behind in Phantom Blade Zero. The game also features QTEs that pop up occasionally during certain fights. The main character is also in possession of a Phantom Blade, which seems to work similar to Sekiro’s prosthetic arm.
