Blades of Time, Konami
Blades of Time is centered around the gorgeous treasure hunter Ayumi, who finds herself under siege in the hostile fantasy realm of Dragonland, where demonic creatures fueled by Chaos magic wreak havoc. The video introduces Blades of Time’s lush landscapes and Ayumi’s deadly beauty, from her quick-slashing dual-katana attacks, handiness with firearms, her game-changing ability to rewind time, and more.
The new trailer showcases Ayumi in elegant melee and ranged combat, in some instances using Time Rewind to clone herself into a small army to fight her monstrous adversaries.
