Forspoken continued to advertise and nothing went as planned. The latest shared video lets gamers chill while others have fun making parodies out of it.
Despite the postponement to January 24, 2023, Forspoken is still showing shows. After a very flashy appearance at State of Play last March, followed by a few gameplay videos here and there, here it is again with a fresh trailer. The developers probably didn’t expect such a strong reaction.
When a Forspoken trailer is hijacked from the web
A month after its postponement, Forespoken is showing its face again. Square Enix released a new trailer on its social networks and the least we can say is that it got noticed.

« Ok, to take stock. I’m in a place that isn’t on earth… I see bloody dragons… And oh yeah, I’m speaking with an armband. Yeah okay, that’s my thing now. I do magic, I kill big critters, maybe I’ll start flying next
The trailer didn’t respond. Some have expressed concerns about the game’s writing and storytelling, many believe the dialogues will be best shudder at worst, one of the weak points of the game.” The dialogues and the video made me die jokes a famous YouTuber. On the other hand, since the internet and social networks are what they are, the promo ended up being parodied and there are some frankly funny ones in the crowd.

Bloodborne, for example, is entitled to the same treatment. ” Ok, to take stock. I’m somewhere that isn’t England. I see fucking werewolves and, oh yeah, I’m talking to a doll! »
Good old SungWon Cho also went there from his diversion with Super Mario Odyssey, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and even Danganronpa on the property. His video ends with Monokuma, the murderous bear, calmly saying, “ I’ll do that now! I kill high school students… ».
Several other netizens went there with their parody of Forspoken, here are some other examples:
