During the Indie Live Expo 2020, Gemdrops announced their new side-scrolling action title, COGEN: Sword of Rewind. Releasing at an unspecified time in 2020, support for English, Japanese, Chinese (both T & S), and Korean languages have been confirmed.

The music for the game will be composed by Motoi Sakuraba, who is known for making tracks in iconic series' such as Tales of, Star Ocean, Dark Souls, and Golden Sun.

A summary of COGEN from the official website can be found below:

A new sensation sword-fighting action game where immediate death is the strongest weapon.

Set on Earth in the far future, you will control the heroine Kohaku and solve the mysteries of Cogen City.

Using the “Ouroboros System,” which activates at the moment of immediate death, you can go back in time and fight without the fear of failure!

Oh wow, this looks really good. Really similar to Mega Man Zero! Definitely keeping an eye on this one.

I was thinking the same thing. Always up for more Mega Man Zero-esque games!

looks like a slightly lower paced Gunvolt game, havent heard Sakuraba doing music for a platformer before, that alone is another selling point, even if gameplay looks quite solid too, so probably getting this if i remember it's name when it releases.
