Shift Up CEO Is Already Teasing A Stellar Blade Sequel

The upcoming RPG is the current talk of the town.

Story Highlights

  • Shift Up CEO Hyung-Tae Kim is hinting at a sequel for Stellar Blade even before its launch.
  • The CEO says that the protagonist’s age, Eve, will be revealed in the next entry of the series.
  • However, the next title is only likely to happen if the RPG performs as well as devs expect.

Even before Stellar Blade’s release, Shift Up CEO Hyung-Tae Kim is already talking about a sequel. In an interview with Famitsu, the studio boss addressed a query about the protagonist’s age. He claimed we will learn about it in the next entry. After the interviewer’s surprise, Kim says the sequel would only launch if Stellar Blade performs well after release.

As for the age, perhaps the next one will reveal it. Yes, I am sure it will be. So, if you are concerned about the age, please play and love the current ‘Stellar Blade’ as much as you can, and we will find out the answer in the next work,” says the CEO. [Machine-translated].

As per the dev, a photo mode can also be added in the game post-launch if there is a demand for it. And in a funny remark, he mentions that the game could have been completed about a year earlier if it were not for Eve’s ponytail.

Stellar Blade Is Among The Most-Awaited Games This Year

The action-packed RPG has garnered a lot of attention since its announcement. Besides the compelling gameplay and fun mechanics, it is also shaping up to be a player-friendly experience since there are no microtransactions. In other words, all the extra content can be unlocked just by playing a game. Additionally, the game’s combat has been defined as a mix of Bayonetta, Sekiro, and Fallen Order.
