As part of the Future Games Show at Gamescom, we saw a little bit more of Teslagrad 2 — the sequel to critically-acclaimed metroidvania Teslagrad — as well as a release date and a confirmation that it'll come to Switch.
Like the original game, Teslagrad 2 is all about using electromagnetic magic powers to traverse a steampunk world inhabited by strange otherworldly creatures, but this time there's a twist — you'll be travelling back in time to defeat ancient monsters and explore long-forgotten ruins in old world Scandinavia.
From the Steam page:
Lumina, a young Teslamancer, finds herself stranded after her airship crashes in Wyrmheim, a remote and treacherous land to the North. Embark on a dangerous adventure, exploring a gigantic, abandoned tower looming over a fjordside valley, on a quest to get Lumina home and back to her family.
Defend yourself against Viking raiders, face gruesome beasts inspired by Nordic mythology, and triumph against epic bosses! As your journey progresses, you’ll discover new skills and equipment needed to uncover the secrets of the land and delve into the dark past of Lumina’s ancestors.
Between this and God of War: Ragnarok, we sense a Norse revival in games...
Teslagrad 2 will come out on Switch, alongside PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, in March 2023.
