Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer 1P2P have announced side-scrolling RPG beat-em-up Young Souls is coming to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC later this year.
You’ll play as misfit orphans Jenn and Tristan who head down into the underworld in search of their guardian. He’s a mysterious professor who vanished right after the pair found a mysterious portal in his lab. The game is divided into two parts, where you’ll spend the day in the town buffing your character’s stats and buying outfits. You’ll then spend the nights down in the dungeons, taking on numerous foes as you clear the depths.
There’s an explosive arsenal of weapons and tools promised, including magma swords, gladiator shields, grappling hooks and more. You’ll also face a series of bosses during the course of the game who’ll each introduce a new enemy type or weapon to wield once defeated. For example, one of the early bosses is the giant spider Mohm. Defeat him, and you’ll get to use his mandibles that also have the boon of spawning friendly poisonous spiders that’ll help in a pinch.
You can check out a trailer for the game below, which actually launches first on Google Stadia from today. Everyone else can look forward to Young Souls when it arrives on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC in Fall 2021.
