No Straight Roads, an action adventure title from developers involved in Final Fantasy XV and Street Fighter V, has been delayed from June 30, 2020 to later this summer.
No Straight Roads is a music-based action-adventure game that will have players playing as two members in a indie rock band, Mayday and Zuke. After being rejected in their audition to No Straight Roads (NSR), the duo discover that the evil intentions behind the NSR empire, leading them down a journey where they have to save their city from corruption.
"Due to the complications that arose from the global pandemic that we're facing today, we've had to make the heartbreaking decision to delay the release of the game until later in the summer," said Game Director Wan Hazmar. "We know that this is gonna disappoint a lot of you, who can't wait to play the game next month, however, we are trying our best to make the delay short and we are trying our best to get the game in your hands as soon as possible."
No Safe Roads is coming out this summer for PC (Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One later this summer.
I've never heard of this game before, but it looks cool. The last big music-based action-adventure game that everyone remembers was probably Brutal Legend, which was over a decade ago. It's definitely an underserved genre. Do people want to play it, though? I guess we'll find out, but this game looks fairly promising and it'll be interesting to see how it does. If it's a good-to-great game and it has less sales then what was expected... maybe it's the genre itself that isn't mainstream enough? Who knows.
