COGEN: Sword of Rewind

The upcoming side-scrolling action game COGEN: Sword of Rewind has received a new gameplay trailer. This trailer comes with a ton of new details on the game, including that it will have a physical release, DLC with new story, and a Limited Run Games special edition. There was also some unfortunate news that the game’s release will be pushed back to 2022. 

This information comes from the Japanese broadcast BitSummit THE 8th, where the CEO of Gemdrops announced that the game’s release date will be January 27, 2022 in Japan. Additionally, more details about the game were dropped such as the soundtrack being composed by the legendary Motoi Sakuraba, different gameplay features to be included, a quick glimpse at the DLC planned, and the plans for the physical western release.

Gemdrops has debuted a new trailer for COGEN: Sword of Rewind, its upcoming side-scrolling action-platformer. Watch it below.

COGEN: Sword of Rewind will debut later in 2021.
