AeternoBlade II is bringing the side-scrolling action and puzzling that you crave.
It is a great time to be a fan of 2D action platforming games. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night released this summer time to crucial acclaim, and we all have our fingers crossed for a Hollow Knight: Silksong release in early 2020. AeternoBlade II is right here to aid us pass the time in-involving. It arrives on PS4, Switch, and Xbox 1 on October 11, 2019.
Billed as a “time-manipulation action & puzzle side-scrolling platformer featuring globe exploration and RPG components,” AeternoBlade II appears to borrow heavily from games in the Castlevania franchise, each with regards to its mechanics and its art style. Nevertheless, it does bring various new functions to the table. The double-jump is a tiny played out at this point, so I’m excited about the “grapple” mechanic that is featured in the trailer beneath. “Time-manipulation” also sounds fascinating, and I’m positive it will afford some inventive options to tough puzzles.
From the trailer you can also see that this game has some 3D sections. Bloodstained flirted with 3D point of view sometimes, but these in AeternoBlade II appear a bit far more involved. I’m essentially reminded of Nier: Automata and the way that game effortlessly switched involving 2D and 3D perspectives. AeternoBlade II may perhaps not be as great as Nier, but incorporating some 3D platforming right here and there may be a neat touch.
There are 3 special playable characters in AeternoBlade II. Freyja utilizes a sword in combat, Bernard a halberd, and Felix a whip blade. Each and every character has special attacks and skills, and it appears like you will have to use all of them in order to resolve the game’s puzzles.
However one more game I’m reminded of is Bloody Spell. Bloody Spell has received a lot of consideration lately for becoming a janky-but-enjoyable Dark Souls. AeternoBlade II appears like it may be a janky-but-enjoyable Castlevania. Perhaps it’ll be even greater. You will be capable to attempt it out and choose for oneself quickly adequate.
