Endless Ocean Luminous | Hype Check

With AKIRA’s Endless Ocean Luminous now only a few days away, we wanted to touch base with some of our team to see how they’re feeling about the game. We’ve seen a range of media up to this point, from gameplay showcases and trailers, we’ve seen the press releases, and heard the talk, but how are we feeling? That’s where we’re bringing Hype Check into the mix; to get a gauge on what the prospective players are thinking. So here’s how we’re feeling about Endless Ocean Luminous.

I’ve been annoyed by the existence of this game since it closed the February Direct instead of Hollow Knight Silksong. Checking that annoyance aside, Endless Ocean Luminous, like the original game, looks like a wonderfully serene experience, but is also not one that I think I’ll find myself playing, unless all the stars align and I don’t have any current or must-play backlogged games to play.

There’s something about wide-open exploratory games which tends to leave me feeling the opposite of what they intend. I’m not really familiar with the Endless Ocean series, and whilst it does look like it’d be a chill experience, it doesn’t really gel with the kinds of stuff I really enjoy. I’m sure it’s going to go down well with its audience, but it’s not one I’m part of.
