Well keep looking, because despite the following video's title of Epic Plot Trailer
, there is exactly zero information about the game's plot beyond the fact that some people and place names are mentioned by characters we may only know in name only.
Look, I'm as excited for Atlus's Game of Thrones
as anyone else on Earth simply because I love the book and television series it's based on. In fact, I think the game's art and world design are probably more true to the book series than the TV series is (season 2 premiers on Sunday, by the way), and that's great, but it doesn't change the fact that this video is worrisom simply because it doesn't show anything. If that's their idea of "revealing the game's plot" then that doesn't bode well for the game's plot, does it?
