Fallen Flag Studio just announced that the boss-rush action game Eldest Souls is coming to current and last-generation platforms at launch. This is alongside the previously-announced Nintendo Switch and PC versions.
In Eldest Souls, the Old Gods have broken free from imprisonment and seek vengeance on all those who defied them. The game “pairs the most intense elements of Souls-like and classic action games with a gritty and beautiful pixel art style.”
“Unleashing a great Desolation upon the world, farmlands turn to deserts, rivers to dust. One final hope for humanity remains; players must take on the role of a lone warrior,” the indie developer teases.
According to Francesco Barsotti, Fallen Flag Studo co-founder and programmer:
Over the last year, we’ve been hard at work making Eldest Souls the best it can be. The response to the trailers and the demo during the Steam Game Festival lit a fire under us and we’re further excited by the chance to bring this experience to even more players. We can’t wait to see Nintendo, PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players challenge the Old Gods.
The game is set for a Q2 2021 launch across all platforms. It was revealed during last summer’s Nintendo Indie World Showcase.
