Get Gothic with Grim Guardians
I’ve been a fan of Inti Creates for a while now. And though that mostly started because of all their Mega Man adjacent titles, they recently really impressed me with their Bloodstained demakes. Now, they’re doing another new adventure in that vein called Grim Guardians: Demon Purge! It’s a Gothic action platformer coming to pretty much everything, including PC, Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Series X|S. Though there’s no release date yet provided, lucky attendees at BitSummit X-Roads will be able to try out an early demo of the game, from August 6-7.
Stylistically, Grim Guardians looks a lot like a Metroidvania, but it’s also very much focused on precision combat. Even cooler is that you’ll be able to switch between two powerful sisters with different capabilities – Shinobu and Maya Kamizono. Shinobu is long-distance focused, while Maya excels at close combat. What’s especially exciting is that you can play Grim Guardians with a friend to have each player focused on a different sister, or you can alternate between them in single player.
Right now that’s about all we know about Grim Guardians: Demon Purge, but you’re in luck. Courtesy of Inti Creates we have a really stellar trailer below to showcase the action. All I can say is I hope for a release window soon, because this looks like a game any fan of classic platforming will adore. Check out that trailer, and stay tuned to HPP for more exciting news about Grim Guardians!
