You can find more details on this one in our original article below.
Original Article (Mon 30th Mar, 2020 14:00 BST): Team17 and Veewo Games have revealed that Neon Abyss, a fast-paced action-platformer previously announced for Steam, will also come to Nintendo Switch this year.
The game has players fighting their way through procedurally generated dungeons, tasked by Hades with dispatching the New Gods in a "colourful and fast-paced blend of run ‘n’ gun gameplay and roguelite mechanics".
We have a list of key features for you if you'd like to know more, as well as a brand new trailer which you should have hopefully spotted already above.
- Roguelite: Death is not the end. When players die, they come back more powerful than before, lasting longer with each incarnation
- Pets: Hatch and evolve pets along your journey to give you additional firepower and perks
- Unlimited item synergies: Random item drops throughout the levels will give players the chance to stack passive effects to devastating effect, and with an almost limitless number of combinations, every run will be unique
- Mini-games: In-between slaying gods, mini-games such as piano performances, meditation challenges, dance competitions and more will give players the chance to not only kick back and relax for a second, but provide extra loot too
If you're keen, a time-limited demo is currently available on Steam - interestingly, the harder the difficulty you select, the longer the demo lets you play.
