Developer Triple-I Games, which includes veterans from BioWare, Sucker Punch Productions, and ArenaNet, has announced that action RPG Hindsight 20/20: Wrath of the Raakshasa is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam with a release date of September 9, 2021. The game will have morality-based decisions and 10 different endings that play out according to your actions, conversations, and how you deal with enemies. What seems like the “right” way to approach a situation might have repercussions later.
In Hindsight 20/20: Wrath of the Raakshasa, you play as one-armed warrior Jehan, who was taught to “abhor violence” in the kingdom of Champaner, but then his father gets murdered and a virus starts turning people into “bloodthirsty Raakshasas.” Thus, there is a choice between attempting to preserve a pacifistic way of life with a stun baton (“Merciful”) or just using a sword to rip people up (“Ruthless”). Triple-I Games says the difference between the two styles will make it feel like a separate experience, and each style will have special abilities to unlock, “from throwing the sword like a boomerang to stunning entire crowds of enemies.” You can watch a trailer from February below to get a better idea of the game.
On paper, Hindsight 20/20: Wrath of the Raakshasa sounds like it could be an awesome Nintendo Switch game with its developer pedigree, and its September release date is not far off. The art style may take a little getting used to though, for those who don’t play a lot of Minecraft or Trove.
