Silent Hope highlights the game’s seven playable characters
XSEED and Marvelous have provided new details and a trailer for Silent Hope that provides a closer look at the seven playable characters’ unique fighting styles and strengths.
Here’s the latest on the upcoming Switch title:
The publisher also released the first installment of the ‘Official World Guide,’ an online resource of information about the setting and characters of Silent Hope that will be expanded with additional details, assets, and tips from the development team before the title releases. Today’s first update dives into the lore of Silent Hope, detailing the historical events that resulted in the Princess being suspended in a crystal teardrop and her call to action for her seven champions. The Guide also explores additional content not found anywhere else, including the personalities of the seven heroes, their backstories and how they found their way to the Great Crystal, an exciting look at the weapons they wield, and a reveal of the advanced classes they can unlock.
Silent Hope harkens back to the glory days of isometric dungeon-crawlers but with a modern flair. Players will take on the roles of seven unlikely heroes, each with their own unique weapon, fighting style, and non-combat job. After spending their days battling through enemies and collecting materials in The Abyss, the heroes will return to Base Camp to craft, improve gear, and prepare for their next excursion. Each journey into The Abyss will be a fresh experience, with procedurally generated layouts ensuring no two adventures are the same, with even greater dangers lurking the further the heroes dare to venture.
