Orangeblood delayed 2020 Playism Grayfax Software

Exactly two months ago, we reported on Orangeblood from Japanese developer Grayfax Software and publisher Playism. It’s a quirky RPG set at the end of an alternate 1990s on a man-made island off the coast of Okinawa, and its teaser trailer blew us away with its beautiful pixel graphics and distinct aesthetic. The game was originally set to release this year, on PC at least, but the publisher has announced that it has been delayed to 2020.

Contrary to the moody atmosphere present in the game’s teaser trailer, Orangeblood seems like it will actually be a zany, crazy game by the sound of its Steam page. You play as “four cute Asian girls” who want to play with “7.62x39mm rifles and filthy, filthy cash!” You can also go buy “extremely powerful guns, 24/7” to battle gangs and killer robots. In other words, it doesn’t sound like an extremely serious game aimed at resolving complicated relations among Asian countries. However, the presence of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean on the island known as New Coza goes a long way toward creating a unique world.

Orangeblood will release first for Steam in 2020 and later for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Here’s that teaser trailer from Playism and Grayfax Software again if you want to enjoy it a second time:
