We’ve already mentioned this game in our huge E3 special article, but we felt like we needed to highlight it more than a mere mention. D4 is the brand new game from Hidetaka Suehiro a.k.a. Swery 65, presented exclusively for Xbox One (also in collaboration with Microsoft Studios) at the Microsoft E3 conference a couple of days ago. Here’s the first announcement trailer.

As you can recall, Swery 65 is the acclaimed creator behind the cult classic Deadly Premonition, and with this new game he really has our attention. The game has been presented as an episodic noir mystery, following the story of a detective with the curious ability to dive back in time, that must use this power to solve his wife’s murder, and then try to prevent it.

As you can see from the above trailer, the game features a full cell shading graphic engine, but we still really see what the game is about.

On a side note, it’s public knowledge that Hidetaka Suehiro has always idolized Goichi Suda (yep, Suda 51 —> Swery 65), but this is the first time the style of a Swery’s game recall a Suda’s creation so clearly. We’ll see if he will meet all our positive expectations.

Also, we don’t think this game has anything in common with the well-known survival horror series D created by Kenji Eno (we miss you so much).

You may have heard something about the new Xbox One presented today by Microsoft. We’re quite sure you have. Anyway, at Microsoft Studios they thought that for keep up with the latest announcement of Gran Turismo 6 (that is set to be released on PlayStation 3), they needed to show off a bit. So Forza Motorsport 5 was the reply, and it looks astonishing!

Enjoy the very first announcement trailer, revealed during today’s event.

Well, not yet satisfied? Let’s carry on with some really beautiful screenshots!

Now, we’re not sure (and nobody said anything about it) if those pics are in-game footage or just pre-rendered screens, but if Forza Motorsport 5 will look like this, oh well, farewell GT6…

Anyway, it will be one of the first things we’ll find out about the new Xbox One, as Forza Motorsport 5 will be available at launch.
