Trek to Yomi and Kao the Kangaroo are the most anticipated games of May 2022

We are now at the end of April and it is time to take stock of the most anticipated games of the month of May 2022, which to be honest is not exactly full of great news, but still characterized by a lineup that remains quite interesting. To tell the truth, the trend continues from the previous month, given that even April was not characterized by news of enormous caliber, demonstrating how the market is taking a breather after a very high pace of the year and possible innovations. which could arrive starting from this summer, at least in terms of special events and announcements.

In any case, there is no shortage of news, although they are more shifted to indie projects and generally less prominent games, but not for this should be underestimated, as anyone who follows the videogame panorama with a little attention knows.

The (partially) different choice between editorial staff and readers is already an index of the variety of titles that the month has in store, but it must be said that the lack of enthusiasm for the May 2022 lineup emerged quite clearly from the results of the public poll, as we will see specifically. In the meantime, however, we can prepare for the announcement season, given that interesting events will already begin to arrive in May such as the presentation of the new Warcraft Mobile, the probable reveal of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and to follow, the following month, the launch. of the Summer Game Fest and the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase 2022.

The most eagerly awaited by the editorial staff

Kao the Kangaroo is a clear return to the classic 3D platform A close fight for first place in the editorial team's vote, which in fact ended up with an equal merit in top of the rankings: Trek to Yomi and Kao the Kangaroo therefore share the most anticipated game title of May 2022, which does not happen often, as far as a single poll is concerned. Trek to Yomi is a sliding action adventure inspired by feudal Japan and genre films and in particular by Akira Kurosawa's historical films: developed by Flyin Wild Hog and published by Devolver Digital, the game tells the story of the young swordsman Hiroki and the oath made to the dying master, to protect his city. The graphic style in black and white is certainly of great impact, also underlining a setting capable of always having its great effect.

Kao the Kangaroo instead represents the return of a franchise that emerged in the early 2000s, at the time when 3D platformers dominated the scene through the imposition of more or less unacceptable characters, among which this sort of anthropomorphic kangaroo in boxing pants and gloves also stood out. The new chapter looks like a real relaunch of the classic style of the genre, supported by a graphic design in line with modern potential but with a gameplay that recalls the old 3D platformers. A short distance away, in second position is Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, a JRPG representing Suikoden's "spiritual successor", being developed by the same authors. Nostalgia flows powerfully in this title, also thanks to the graphic style that recalls precisely the "2D-HD" used by Square Enix for Octopus Traveler. To close the podium, another tie between Salt and Sacrifice and Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong.

The most awaited by readers

Trek to Yomi, an image of the game Quite explicit the result of the poll released to readers on the most anticipated game of May 2022: the most voted option, and by far, was the infamous "None". It is a clear sign of the lack of interest that next month's lineup arouses in most users, however there are still some elements of interest. As per tradition, we take into consideration the first title to emerge behind the most nihilistic choice and we find Trek to Yomi in first place, also in this case. It is therefore a choice in accordance with that expressed also by the editorial staff, beyond the double first position that emerged in that case. For readers there are fewer doubts: the Japanese-inspired title with its particular atmosphere has obviously won the hearts of many.

In second position we find Salt and Sacrifice: the souls-like action RPG in 2D is almost ready to launch and continues to be very interesting. Developed by Ska Studios and Devoured Studios, the game provides another interpretation of the famous sub-genre in a more purely action form and all set on a two-dimensional plane, characterized by particularly evocative designed graphics. A short distance from the latter, in third position we find Sniper Elite 5, a new chapter in the Rebellion shooter series focused on the figure of the marksman and set during the Second World War, which brings a series of innovations to the basic mechanics and missions unpublished. Outside the podium, always very close came Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong and to follow Kao the Kangaroo.
