The scene: Your RPG hero is standing before the evil Overlord, the final boss of the game. As they start to battle, your hero suddenly forgets everything—why he’s fighting, who his friends are, and what he’s doing there in the first place.

That’s the premise of The Longest 5 Minutes, a Japanese game published by NIS America that’ll be out next year for PC and Vita. It’s an adventure game that takes you into your hero’s mind, where you can relive his journey and try to piece together his memories in the middle of this final boss battle. There’s a teaser trailer above. Looks fantastic - I’m all in.
