AND Sand Land was announced at Summer Games Fest and is sure to be an amazing experience for fans of the highly successful manga series.
There’s a glimpse into the vast deserts the series is famous for, as well as vehicles that longtime readers will no doubt recognize. The game was first announced a few months ago but has now been officially confirmed to be in development and coming.
The trailer shows first-person shooting, as well as driving mechanics that appear to have some similarities to the Rage and Borderlands series. There’s a lot of color here contrasting with the gray sand that helps deliver the graphic style that made the book so successful over 20 years ago.
There has been no shortage of excellent anime games in recent years, so let’s hope so Sand Land can keep up the pace. The original manga was written and drawn by Akira Toriyama, who is perhaps best known for his work on the Dragonball series, one of the greatest and best anime series of all time. Sand Land is also being adapted into an anime film scheduled for release in August 2023, it’s possible that this game could be a direct tie-in or an offshoot in a unique way.
What has been revealed in the footage seems to capture the spirit of the original work well, with the characters and environments looking perfect for their roots. If all goes well, this upcoming game will give longtime fans the experience they’ve been waiting for.
We give you everything you need to know about all the upcoming games that are on the way this summer. E3 2023 may not be with us this year, but that hasn’t stopped developers and publishers from showing off the latest and greatest to look forward to.
