Now this is the kind of surprise I’d like to have every day. Chilean developers ACE Team (Zeno Clash, Rock of Ages) revealed today that they have been working on a new action/strategy hybrid titled SolSeraph and due for release on July 10th. Publishing duties are being handled by SEGA, and the game will cost US$14.99 or your regional equivalent once it hits Steam. If you’d prefer to play it on console (you heathen!), SolSeraph will also be out for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on the same day.
Here’s a nice gameplay trailer for your viewing pleasure (also, am I the only one who thinks this is eerily similar to ActRaiser?).
Retro-inspired tower defense and action platformer SolSeraph reinvents the classics!
As the guardian of humanity, civilization is in your hands. Build your cities and set up defensive structures to protect them from the constant threat of monsters, then descend into their lairs with sword and spells to eliminate them for good. Explore floating islands, ancient caverns, and lost cities. The world is yours!
Brought to you by ACE Team, the creative minds behind Rock of Ages and Zeno Clash, SolSeraph combines action and strategy for a rich and unique gameplay experience reminiscent of the 16-bit era.
