Konami’s new roguelike metroidvania has an incredible artwork type


Konami unveiled GetsuFumaDen: Timeless Moon throughout Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase final night time. It is a 2D roguelike hack-and-slasher, and an unlikely follow-up to GetsuFumaDen, a Japan-only Famicom sport from 1987. Plus, it sports activities this conventional Japanese artwork type which I can not get sufficient of.

Indie studio GuruGuru labored with Konami to develop this 2D “roguevania” as they name it. What this implies is that you’re going to be thrust into an underworld blighted by demons, do some preventing, a lot of exploring, and get your arse handed to you usually. It seems implausible too, with this Ukiyo-e artwork type that simply pops.

This is a take a look at GetsuFumaDen within the motion:

Not solely does the Ukiyo-e artwork type lend fights main type factors, it is the background particulars which catch my eye too. That flaming hellscape on the 46 second mark with all of the demons hanging out by their literal blood bathtub, and that Ryokotsuki cranium monster? Get out of right here, it simply seems so modern.

GetsuFumaDen is because of launch on Steam Early Entry on Could thirteenth for £20/$25/€25. Those that purchase this model of the sport may even get a port of the unique Famicom GetsuFumaDen as a bonus, alongside a digital artbook and soundtrack. How beautiful.

In keeping with GetsuFumaDen’s early entry roadmap, the plan is for a brand new playable character to reach in June, alongside changes and enhancements. In August a brand new stage is because of be introduced, and previous that, the devs hope so as to add extra modes, levels, weapons, and the like. Konami do not say how lengthy they anticipate the early entry interval to final, although they do notice that the sport is because of launch on Nintendo Swap in 2022 so presumably by then.
