If you’re a fan of retro-inspired games, then you’ve probably already heard of Battle Princess Madelyn. Inspired by Capcom’s legendary Ghouls ‘N Ghosts series, the game features stunning 2D visuals and challenging side-scrolling gameplay as players guide Madelyn, a young night in training and her ghostly dog, Fritzy, across a variety of haunting locales as they work to save the kingdom from an evil wizard.
Now, after a painfully long time in development, developer Casual Bit Games and PR firm Hound Picked Games have announced that Battle Princess Madelyn will finally be releasing on December 6th on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. The previously announced PlayStation Vita and Wii U versions of the game will release a bit later in 2019.
“It’s been an exciting, exhaustive, stressful, enjoyable, frustrating, etc. period over the last two years developing Battle Princess Madelyn and I would do it all over again,” said Casual Bit Games’ Christopher Obritsch. “The feedback that has been given in the creation of the game, the positive remarks, the way social media, the specialist gaming press, etc. have supported the game throughout this long period has been nothing short of remarkable. The end result is a game the team are all proud of and went beyond what was envisioned. Within a very short time gamers will be able to play Battle Princess Madelyn. I hope it will give them as much enjoyment as it has to the team that created it!.”
To celebrate the game’s launch date announcement, Casual Bit Games has released a new gameplay trailer. Watch as Madelyn battles the wizard’s evil forces with a variety of weapons in the trailer below:
