You may remember a unique looking game called Lily Bergamo that was revealed late last year by Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture. Well, it has become something else. Famitsu was able to take a chance to interview Suda and GungHo’s CEO Kazuki Morshita and in this interview it was revealed that Lily Bergamo has now been changed completely into the gritty free-to-play PS4 title Let It Die.
In the interview it is discussed that while they were developing Lily Bergamo, they decided to change the game into one with online gameplay and survival aspects thanks to “soul searching” by the company. It was also confirmed that the previous protagonist Tae Ioroi has been removed entirely and players will now be able to create their own avatars.
As such, Let It Die will be a title that takes each players’ created avatar and as they die in the game, their avatar will start to be displayed in other player’s games. This means that the more deaths that occur the more players will see other avatars. It is also said that although players will start with zero equipment, they can gain weaponry and amor by killing enemies and taking it from their corpses.
Despite all of this judging from fans of Grasshopper Manufacture’s past titles and what Suda 51 is known for, the general fanbase is taking this announcement as something that might have been better left to die.
