ReCore Might Be Eight Hours Long, Hints Game’s Director

That said, he also states multiple times that he’s not too sure on that figure.

ReCore is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing upcoming games in the Xbox One’s lineup. Developed by the developers of Metroid Prime and Mega Man in collaboration, the game looks like a fantastic new take on the classic Metroid and Zelda formulas- though how well a developer other than Nintendo is able to capture that is anybody’s guess.

Like classic Metroid and Zelda games, it also sounds like it won’t be too long- but a short adventure doesn’t mean it won’t be substantive, either. Mark Pacini, director of ReCore, said that the game would have a ‘lot of value.’

“I’m horrible at gameplay hours,” Pacini said to VentureBeat. “With the first Metroid [Prime] I said it was going to be eight hours and it ended up being something like twenty four. I think we’ve put a lot of value into this game, though. It’s the proper length of time for the adventure, the story we’re trying to tell. Take that with a grain of salt, knowing I’m horrible at estimate. It’s eight hours, and take that with a warning.”

If it is anything like his own Metroid example, then, we should be good to go with a meaty, 24 hour long adventure. That said, even if it is only eight hours, I don’t think players will complain necessarily about a short, but well made, adventure (especially given ReCore‘s budget pricing).

    Well considering the cheaper price, I’m sure it won’t be more than 8 hours. This is disappointing since single player games like Red Dead, Tomb Raider, Fallout 4, Mass Effect, Deus Ex, etc. have great stories and deliver an amazing experience way more than 8 hours.

    Make no mistake, and 8 hour game reeks of laziness or a poor story. Rarely if ever do we get a very well made single player game with a great story that’s short in length. It doesn’t happen folks.

      It all depends on how you play it, like most games you can rush through just doing the bare minimum but on the other end you can take your time and do everything to get the most out of a game.
