Nacon Connect 2020

When Nacon Connect 2020 was announced for today, my first thought was, “What is Nacon?” It wasn’t a name I expected to see among our Not-E3 showcases. But with other presentations still to come, our Not-E3 coverage isn’t over yet – so let’s take a look at Nacon Connect.

(Nacon, as it turns out, is a gaming accessory/peripheral company that also publishes games. Earlier this year, they merged with Bigben Interactive.)

The show started off with Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, an upcoming story-driven RPG set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe. I still need to play the one I have (Bloodlines), but I like vampires, so I’m intrigued enough by this.

Next, they announced a motorcycle game called RiMS Racing, which doesn’t particularly interest me, and then a roguelike called Rogue Lords (which sounded kinda cool, except that I’m not a big roguelike fan).

They talked about the Nacon brand, peripherals, and a peripheral deal with Microsoft, and then it was time for the next game reveal: the next game from Spiders, the developer of Greedfall and Bound By Flame.

Although I haven’t played one of their games yet, I’m interested enough in them that this reveal was the thing I was most looking forward to from the showcase. They announced Steelrising, an action RPG set during the French Revolution, except King Louis XVI has a robot army. That could be cool, although the teaser trailer shows almost nothing.

After that, they showed a gameplay trailer for another upcoming action RPG, Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood. I like the little glimpses shown here, but I’d like to see more of it.

(I was also pleased to finally see gameplay from that werewolf game teased in previous Not-E3 presentations… until I double-checked and found that that was Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest, so I guess there’s two games in the same franchise coming out.)

That was the last major game in the showcase for me. They went on to show Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown (racing), Roguebook (roguelike deck-builder), Tennis World Tour 2 (self-explanatory), the tiniest announcement of Warhammer: Chaosbane coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X (it was literally a still image with the news written on it), and WRC 9 (racing).

Overall, it wasn’t the most thrilling presentation, but it had a few interesting announcements. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Limited Run Games presentation as our Not-E3 coverage continues! What did you think of Nacon Connect 2020?

  6. The werewolf game looks like some silly fun. Steelrising looked beautiful.There’s a couple of vampire related games I never got around to trying like Castlevania.
