Billed as an action RPG metroidvania inspired by classic 16-bit examples of the genre, Souldiers is coming to consoles and PC this May. Promising “crunchy” soulslike combat alongside metroidvania exploration, PRG customisation, and platforming, Souldiers also has some rather lovely retro-style pixel art.
Choosing from scout, caster, and archer roles, you'll embark upon a quest to to gain freedom for the mystical land of Terragaya, where the line between life and death teeters on a knife-edge. Each class has its own attacks, alongside different agility, attack, defence, and health stats.
Once you've chosen your class, you can then customise your character to suit your play style, taking on hordes of enemies and bosses using slashes, parries, and dodges; navigating a 90s-style interconnected 16-bit world; and solving various puzzles. You can check out an animated trailer for Souldiers below.
Souldiers will be coming to Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC on 19th May.
