During Tokyo Game Show 2021, a new publisher by the name of 110 Industries made its presence known by announcing a slew of sleek new titles. One of them is a 3D action game that piqued my interest; one that’s made by ex-Team Ninja folks.
The game is called Wanted: Dead and it puts you in the shoes of a cyborg police officer who slashes her way out of her forced imprisonment. The setting is in sci-fi Hong Kong where synthetic workforces are being sidelined, hence the female cyborg doing what she’s doing in the trailer: dismembering the living heck out of anything threatening her.
This hack and slash title is being developed by Soleil, who are made up of developers who worked on the Ninja Gaiden reboot in the Xbox days, Dead or Alive, and Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. That’s a helluva resume, if I must say so myself.
Wanted: Dead is slated for a 2022 release.
