Whereas the world waits for a brand new Castlevania or Silent Hill, Konami has different plans. At present it introduced GetsuFumaDen: Timeless Moon, a 2D Metroidvania roguelite with a Ukiyo-e impressed artwork fashion. It’s a revival of a 1987 NES platformer that was by no means launched exterior of Japan, and it’s not precisely the primary sequence you’d anticipate a writer to revisit.
However Konami does what it desires, apparently, and this newly introduced platformer really appears actually cool: in the event you take the artwork fashion of Okami (additionally impressed by Ukiyo-e) and mash it right into a pot with Bloodstained and Lifeless Cells, that’s principally what GetsuFumaDen appears like.
“Ryukotsuki has returned after a thousand years, undoing the seal upon hell and bringing forth monsters and evil spirits who threaten the tip of the world,” reads Konami’s blurb. “The Getsu clan has saved watch over the underworld ever for the reason that first Fuma defeated Ryukotsuki. Now, their heroic 27th chief should descend into that vile abyss to root out the evil behind this cataclysm.”
The sport will formally launch in 2022, however in the event you’re particularly keen it’ll launch into Early Entry on Could 13. “All through this era, we wish to utilise consumer suggestions and foster an energetic dialogue to extend the standard of the sport,” producer Shin Murato stated. “We’ll work very carefully with our group to assist deliver this sport to life via content material evaluation, bug fixes, and balancing.”
