After Sony confirmed that it would not release any AAA budget games, fans were disappointed, but after two pretty great revelations, players already have almost three great exclusive games.

Sony has launched Rise of the Ronin and Helldivers 2 to astounding reviews, but now it’s time for Stellar Blade, one of the most anticipated games of the first half of the year. This action game is making a lot of noise.

The controversial path that the game took has caught even more attention, making the industry and players ready to receive this game with open arms. According to initial impressions, the game is more than good and aims for an impressive score.

By launching a demo and appearing in every kind of conversation regarding the protagonist’s looks and camera position, the studio has achieved many headlines organically.

Besides the organic promotion that the game is receiving from controversy, PlayStation and the studio behind the game, Shift-Up Corporation, have announced a collaboration with a popular singer.

To promote the upcoming launch, BIBI will create a music video that draws inspiration from this title. This team-up will be released tomorrow at 9 a.m. (PT). Fans of this K-Pop star are really happy with this very original collaboration.

This video will show BIBI cosplaying like Eve, the main character; apparently, she will dress up in the various outfits of the protagonist of Stellar Blade. Fans are very excited and surprised by this unusual collaboration.

No more details were given by the studio or PlayStation about how the final result of this campaign would be. This was a surprising move by PlayStation and Shift Up, proving that marketing is always necessary.

Stellar Blade will officially launch exclusively on PS5 on April 26. The game will follow EVE as one of the last warriors looking to save Earth from an alien invasion that wants humans off the planet. As an RPG, this title will have a skill tree, new unlockable, new abilities, and what all fans are looking for: new outfits for EVE. With several pre-orders fully sold, the game aims to sell a ton of copies.

I'm a big fan of movies and videogames in general. I really love Pokémon and Godzilla. One of my favorite games is The Last of Us, Part II. A compelling and well-written story is always welcome.
