If you've got a good memory, you might recall us mentioning DokeV when it was announced by Black Desert Online dev Pearl Abyss nearly two years ago. It later got a trailer that showed off some gameplay with a catchy tune, and today at Gamescom, we got yet another look at the visually appealing upcoming title.

DokeV (pronounced in three syllables: "do-ki-vee," not "doak-vee") looks to take place largely in a city with plenty of opportunities for open exploration, though the trailer also showcases some woodlands and watersports. The player avatars, monsters, and combat moves have a brightly colored, over-the-top aestethic that's clearly meant for a younger audience, but -- if I'm being perfectly honest with myself -- look kind of fun.

DokeV is described on its website as being a "creature-collecting open world action-adventure" game -- in other words, not altogether dissimilar to Pokémon. Its fully 3D, open-world nature, adds an interesting and appealing spin to the formula, though. It's a little early to label it the "next big thing," but it's got a chance of at least being decently successful.

Looks pretty chill. You can see who they are aiming at.
Hope that its not about market targeting and more about the game and letting players have fun.
