Publisher PQube has revealed the release date for its upcoming action-adventure RPG title, Aggelos. You'll be able to get your retro-loving hands on it from 25th April.
We first heard about this one last summer, when it was revealed that the game was inspired by non-linear Japanese retro adventures such as Wonder Boy In Monster World. PQube has described it as a "dream-come-true for Metroidvania fans" - a rather bold claim indeed.
Still, it has gathered "very positive" user reviews on Steam since its launch last June so it could definitely be a Switch release worth keeping an eye on and, speaking of Steam, the game's store page provides with a handy feature list to explore:
A vast kingdom to explore: Venture through forests, seas, cave systems and ancient temples as you seek to uncover the magical elements needed to save the world from total annihilation.
A classical non-linear adventure: Explore a sprawling world that gradually reveals itself, Metroidvania-style, as you gain new abilities and equipment.
Deadly encounters: Thwart towering bosses and their tricky minions as you take on perilous mainline quests and optional odd-jobs for the people of Lumen.
Tactical depth: Unlock magical abilities and high-level attacks, expertly chaining these immense powers together to clear screens of enemies in seconds.
Stunning sprite art: Forget out-of-place modern art: Aggelos boasts superlative character designs and animations while remaining proudly, and faithfully, 16-bit through and through.
Memorable chiptunes: Lose yourself to a retro-inspired soundtrack that floods the Kingdom of Lumen with life.
As noted above, this one arrives on Switch next month on 25th April, although no pricing information has been shared just yet.
