Developer Nekki has lifted the veil on their upcoming title, SPINE, with a new gameplay trailer showcased at the Future Games Show. The “Market Gameplay” teaser offers a glimpse into SPINE‘s stylish gun fu action, set within a vibrant cyberpunk world.  With a planned release in late 2025, SPINE aims to redefine the genre on PC and consoles.

SPINE casts players as Redline, a rebellious street artist fighting an oppressive AI regime known as the Tensor Corporation. She won’t be alone though – players will also control her sentient combat implant, Spine, as they challenge their high-tech adversaries.  This dynamic duo will need to learn to trust each other if they hope to succeed.

You can see the game in action below.

What truly sets SPINE apart is its cinematic flair.  Nekki has enlisted the help of action movie specialists to choreograph the game’s combat sequences, giving every encounter a blockbuster feel. Powered by Unreal Engine 5 and Nekki’s own Cascadeur animation engine, SPINE promises fluid, dynamic battles where you feel like the star of your own action flick.

Producer Dmitry Pimenov spoke about the gameplay teaser: “Today’s pre-Alpha Market Gun Fu teaser is just a taste of SPINE’s cinematic action from early in the game when Redline has unlocked only a small number of Spine’s abilities. We’re looking forward to showing more gameplay later this year, as well as revealing more about SPINE’s deep story and world-building, character backgrounds, cutscenes and cinematic production.”

Eager to dive into the world of SPINE?  You can wishlist the game on Steam right now. And if you can’t wait for the game’s release, Nekki is publishing the SPINE: Bullet Dancers webtoon, offering a deeper dive into the game’s lore and setting the stage for Redline’s rebellion.
