Announced on-stage during Sony’s Paris Games Week press event with a neat teaser trailer, the title appears to have users playing as the child of the original protagonist.

No release date has been announced just yet, but developer Mossmouth Games - i.e. solo game maker Derek Yu - has confirmed via Twitter that the game is indeed coming to Steam (below).
