Sword of the Vagrant is a side-scrolling action game that reminds me very much of the Exile series back of the TurboGrafx-16 and is coming to Xbox, PS4 and switch December 1st for the low, low price of $9.99.
Guide Vivian the Vagrant, through vibrant and dynamic landscapes while hacking and slashing a path from a quiet coastal village through mysterious forests, haunted castles, and wrecked battlegrounds. When the endless barrage of enemies have been vanquished, what solace will be left for our hero?
“Journey into a gorgeous hand-painted fantasy world known as Mythrilia and discover the truth about your bloodline and its darkest secret. Hack and slash a path from a quiet coastal village through mysterious forests, haunted castles, and wrecked battlegrounds. When the endless barrage of enemies have been vanquished, what solace will be left for our hero?
The Vagrant is a 2D action RPG. As Vivian, you will experience an exciting and challenging adventure focused on combat gameplay that utilizes combo chains, charge attacks, and special skills, all while improving your character’s build through new equipment and abilities. Play casually or become a master combatant.
As you can tell by the above this side scrolling adventure combines quick reflexes and some light RPG leveling elements to give players a visually interesting game to play through and enjoy. The strong heroine gives me a strong Vales-like vibes for those old enough to remember that series as well as the Exile series. How well it will compare to the classic games of the gene remains to be seen but at least we only have a week to wait and see.
