LET IT DIE
Publisher GungHo Online Entertainment Developer Grasshopper Manufacture Format PS4 Release 2015
Let It Die (formerly Lily Bergamo) was so unprepared for its E3 showing that developer Grasshopper and publisher GungHo sent Goichi ‘Suda 51’ Suda and Kazuki Morishita – along with the game’s creative director and a phalanx of marketing and PR staff – to LA without anything but a live-action trailer interspersed with tantalising glimpses of gameplay. Details about this free-toplay survival-action title are still short, but we do know it’s a hack-and-slash game in which scavenged weapons will offer new combos and movesets, and every death will send your character to the cloud, which is where GungHo’s online expertise steps in. Out in the online ether, your dead character will exist as a ghost, invading other worlds and – in ways the pair are keeping secret – returning rewards to your new character for every life they take.
