Cygames’ Project Awakening: Arise maintains beauty while flaunting epic scale that is normally only seen in titles like Monster Hunter, and it might be dropping a demo soon.

Having been originally announced at a Sony Tokyo Game Show (TGS) presentation from last year, it looks like this trial period could line up to release during this year’s TGS when it begins later next week.

With not much time left in the year, Project Awakening: Arise is running out of space to make its originally promised release window of 2019. Hopefully Cygames will be able to give us more information on its new action RPG next week.
