Yohane the Parhelion: Blaze in the Deepblue gameplay

Yohane the Parhelion: Blaze in the Deepblue landed on Switch this week, and a bunch of gameplay has come in. Close to a high hour of footage highlights the Metroidvania experience.

In case you missed our previous coverage, here’s an overview of the game:

System: Switch
Release date: November 16, 2023
Developer: Inti Creates
Publisher: Inti Creates

Inti Creates has certainly earned a reputation for developing high quality 2D action titles having brought games such as Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon and its sequel as well as the Blaster Master Zero series to the Switch over the years. The studio’s latest game, Yohane the Parhelion: Blaze in the Deepblue, is based on a fantasy spinoff of Love Live! Sunshine!! The setting lends itself well to a video game and it has a solid foundation that makes it fun while it lasts, but unfortunately it doesn’t capitalize on this enough to make it any more than a middling experience at best.

Yohane the Parhelion Blaze in the Deepblue demo

Yohane the Parhelion: Blaze in the Deepblue, the next game from Inti Creates, just received a demo on Switch. It’s accessible on the eShop.

The demo lets players experience three early areas – the Sunken Temple, Grotto, and Ruins – and explore the game before release. They can try out the Cast system used to craft equipment, search nooks and crannies in search of powerful bosses and treasure, and defeat monsters and pick up Musical Scores to use Yohane’s power-up mode where she sings her newest song, “Deep Blue”.
