Square Enix turns heads with Project Athia for PS5 and PC

A caped crusader.

Another head-turner tonight was Project Athia (a working title) by Square Enix studio Luminous Productions.

It's a story-led action-packed adventure, according to a Square Enix tweet, and it follows a girl in a cape who can leap great distances at great speeds, and even conjure huge roots to rip out of the ground and ensnare her foes.

All this in a slightly off-kilter and beautiful fantasy world, a world of giant wolves and dragons and floating eyes. And a hero who wears trainers. I'm in.

Project Athia is coming to PlayStation 5 and PC. There's no release date.
