LOS ANGELES, Calif. — February 23, 2023 — Enhance and Tokyo-based design studio tha ltd. today unveiled a new gameplay trailer and May 2023 release date for HUMANITY®, a unique action-puzzle hybrid from visionary designer Yugo Nakamura, coming to PlayStation 5 (with PS VR2 compatibility), PlayStation 4 (with PS VR compatibility), and PC (via Steam, with VR compatibility).

A unique blend of puzzle-solving and action-platforming, HUMANITY puts the fate of all mankind in your hands. Er, paws. Did we mention you’re a dog?

You play a Shiba Inu charged with commanding massive, marching crowds to jump, turn, push, float, shoot, and climb their way to salvation. Guide the masses through levels (10 in the demo, 90-plus stages in the full game Story Mode) filled with obstacles, enemies, puzzles, and unlockable skills, or browse a wide array of user-made challenges (or build your own!) crafted via the super-easy-to-use in-game Stage Creator. (Note: Created stages and all accompanying data from the demo – favorites, ratings, level progress, etc. – will not carry over to the full version.)

Whether on your standard display or in the optional VR Mode, watch as breathtaking swarms of people follow your commands to the exit, all in HUMANITY’s stark iconic style, courtesy of director and celebrated visual designer Yugo Nakamura and famed game creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi (Rez, Tetris Effect: Connected).
