Just when you think certain IPs out there are lost to our nostalgia and memories, we get the announcement for TRON: Identity out of D23 this year. As the name alludes to, it is a new title in the line that will have us back on the grid with Bithell Games helming this new out into the cyberspace. So it looks like it is time to get those Identity Discs back on and break into the Grid one more time as we uncover the extra secrets that TRON: Identity has to off up. Well, at least when it hits the PC and consoles in the future. This is just an announcement and basic reveal to have and nothing massive as we might have had our hopes built up to.
Not too much for TRON: Identity is known outside of the name and some of the basics we have already stated here, but it does look like it will be more of a visual novel out there more than anything. All as we set out to reveal more memories out there in the world where things will be hidden in various Identity Disc puzzles out there too. At the very least, it will give TRON fans a lot more to go on and show Disney that there is a want for something bigger for the IP. That is how it normally feels like it goes when it comes to titles like this with the visual novels building into larger-scale games out there. I guess we will only have to wait and see now that this one has been announced and is slated to hit sometime in 2023. Have a look at the teaser to see what you might have missed so far.
