Today, publisher Catness Game Studios and developer Infinity Experience shared a final release date for Chronicles of 2 Heroes: Amaterasu’s Wrath. The title launches for Switch on May 26, 2023.
Chronicles of 2 Heroes was previously confirmed for Switch in January 2022. The action platformer was originally planned for last year.
For more information about the game, read the following overview:
Chronicles of 2 Heroes: Amaterasu’s Wrath is an intense 16-bit action platformer featuring Metroidvania elements, Japanese mythos, and gorgeous pixel art. That’s not all: you can switch between the protagonists in real-time! Ayame and Kensei have unique, surprising combat styles that you will need to master to save feudal Japan from Amaterasu’s wrath.
Amaterasu and her disciple, Empress Himiko, tyrannize feudal Japan with their mighty army of yokai. All hopes rest on Kensei the samurai and Ayame the kunoichi, two siblings who trained for years to defeat the goddess. Combining their abilities, they will get into the imperial capital of Osaka to steal the three sacred treasures, the empress’ source of power.
- Switch between the protagonists in real-time. Kensei the samurai uses his katana for close combat, but he cannot jump. Ayame is way more agile and uses ranged attacks.
- Overcome old-school platforming challenges. Retro platformers are our main reference, but we tried to bring the most satisfying, modern experience to the table.
- Dive in Japanese mythos. Fight against ronin, yokai, and countless enemies inspired by Japanese mythology.
- Unlock up to 20 powerful abilities. From smashing the ground and stunning your enemies to double jumping and reaching higher platforms.
