Launching on Nintendo Switch on 2nd December is Archvale, a "vibrant" RPG and bullet hell hybrid that could well be worth your time.
Also hitting Xbox One and PC on the same day, Archvale has you looting and crafting to access better weapons, exploring dungeons full of different enemies, and taking on some "fast, fun and challenging" bullet hell combat. You can get a taste of that bullet hell combat in the footage above, as well as its Zelda-style puzzles and RPG gameplay.
Here's a list of key features to tell you a little more:
PLAY YOUR WAY - Augment the character via badges, allowing players to create a build that suits their playstyle.
MASTERY IS KEY - Skill-based bullet hell combat will put players’ weapons of choice to the test and require precision and speed to succeed
BUILD ARSENAL - Players can craft over 200 weapons and armor using items gathered from the environment and from slaying enemies.
EXPLORE THE WORLD - Encounter a host of enemies across diverse environments and classic-inspired dungeons in an ever changing map where players will find unique resources needed to complete their journey.
DISCOVER THE TRUTH - Uncover the dark lore of the world on the quest to unearth the arch to the fabled world of Archvale
The game will be available for $14.99 when it launches next week. Do you think you'll be giving it a go?
Looks a bit like a brighter version of Enter the Gungeon. Might give it a go, there’s not much else coming out in December
The trailer was AWESOME. I’ll probably get it. The screenshots look like an Enter The Gungeon knockoff, but the trailer makes it look special.
“When You Cross The Legend Of Zelda With Bullet Hell” isn’t that just about every topdown dungeon crawling roguelike ever? Even the 2D sidescrolling roguelikes like Dead Cells descend into bullet hell like it’s some sort of requirement for the genre.
This actually looks decent. I think I want to play this game. Most games like these don't have the rpg elements.
It looks lovely. Hopefully they stick the landing and there is a little more depth than shown. Looking forward to reviews.
Looks good. I don't do great with twin stick shooters, but I'll give it a go.
I've never played a game that is described as "zelda like" that is actually "zelda like".
@SalvorHardin every game here including mario gets called a “zelda-like”. They might as well call every game with a fps view a call of duty like…
On topic it looks very interesting to me having played more over a 100 hours of EtG.
Really hype about this. It’s a really interesting blend of Enter the Gungeon, Terraria and Zelda (amongst others). If you’re interested in following the development of this game over the years I’d recommend you check out the dev’s (‘iDoz’) videos on YT showing & discussing its creation. Dec 2 couldn’t come quicker!
