Stories of origin was one of the games that appeared on the Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live show. The latest trailer for the game introduced two new characters, Dohalim and Kisara, who will also help liberate the planet Dahna from the oppression of neighboring Renan soldiers.
For the past 300 years, Rena ruled the nearby planet Dahna, taking its resources and stripping the freedom and dignity of its people. The game’s cast will team up to overthrow the Renan rule. Dohalim and Kisara are the last two characters to join Alphen, Shionne, Rinwell and Law, and the publisher gave us a quick rundown of their reasons for being here.
Dohalim is a nobleman from Rena with very different feelings towards Dahnans compared to other Renans. He is a very well-mannered gentleman with a particular sensitivity to art forms such as music, poetry or antiquities. He fights with his rod with a mix of techniques and astral arts that allows him to adapt to his opponents.
Kisara is a Dahnan soldier who accompanies Dohalim. She is one of the most powerful soldiers in the Dahnan army and is also highly regarded by Renan soldiers even when using their equipment. She uses her hammer and shield to deal heavy damage in close combat, but can also use her shield to protect her friends while unleashing powerful and comprehensive defense techniques.
The trailer reveals the two newest characters in more detail, as well as the new Elde Menancia region. There are also some of the better combat moves in action, such as the Artes Combo Attack and Boost Strikes, with the latter moves being performed by two characters.
After delay due to the corona pandemic, Stories of origin launches now on PS5 and PS4 on September 10. Those who buy the game on PS4 can upgrade to the PS5 version for free.
