No Straight Roads

Developer Metronomik has announced a partnership with publisher Sold Out to release No Straight Roads worldwide for PlayStation 4 and PC in early 2020—a delay from its previously planned spring 2019 release. The PlayStation 4 version will be released both physically and digitally. The physical version will cost $39.99 / £29.99 / €39.99.

“Partnering with Sold Out has given us the opportunity to turn the volume up to 11 on No Straight Roads, and we’re thrilled to also release a physical edition,” said Metronomik CEO Wan Hazmer. “Pushing the game to early 2020 wasn’t an easy decision, but the extra time will let us fully deliver on our vision for No Straight Roads while sticking to our studio’s core values of providing a friendly, healthy workplace. We’re so proud of everyone on the team for what they’ve achieved so far, and we can’t wait to bring Vinyl City to life…!”

Sold Out CEO Garry Williams added, “Excuse the pun but No Straight Roads immediately struck a chord with us and we’re really excited to be working with Metronomik to release the game around the world. It’s a genuinely unique title. It’s loud and in-your-face with some fresh gameplay mechanics, bringing back memories of games like Jet Set Radio while delivering something new and innovative.”

Here is a brief overview of the game, via Sold Out:

No Straight Roads is an action game that puts music and sound at the heart of the gameplay. Playing as Mayday and Zuke, two members of the indie rock band Bunk Bed Junction, players must fight back against the NSR mega corporation, an EDM empire that has taken control of Vinyl City and banned all other types of music. Explore Vinyl City’s eclectic districts and use music to transform objects into weapons, face colossal bosses and change the world.

The game is the first title from Final Fantasy XV‘s lead game designer Wan Hazmer and Street Fighter V’s concept artist Daim Dziauddin’s new studio Metronomik. It has already won awards for ‘Best Indie Project’ at the 2019 Unreal Open Day in Shanghai and ‘Best Audio’ at the 2019 Taipei Game Show.

No Straight Roads will be available on PlayStation 4 and PC in early 2020, EFIGS text language support will be available at launch. Pre-orders for the physical PlayStation 4 version will be available soon.
