Actos Games announces new content for their latest release, exclusively on the Wii U eShop. In this first content update players will see improved controllability, new button inputs, and a fix for some of the game’s trickier puzzles. There will also be a new puzzle added to the second level.

Here are some additional details about the upcoming update:

The new content update will be called REIGN OF THE TWIG KING, will feature not only homages to famed Nintendo games Super Metroid, but upcoming titles including indie game Ghost Song. “We really love the Metroid series of games, and the genre that came out of it called ‘metroidvania’. In REIGN OF THE TWIG KING, we can have fans who enjoy that style of gameplay experience it in psyscrolr as well.” Jonathan Meyer, CEO of Actos Games stated.

The story of REIGN OF THE TWIG KING is based around the titular villain, who has seized full control over the Badgreens, the main area of the game that the Scrolr, the hero, traverses through. It’s up to the players to find out what exactly is the Twig King as well as figure out how to defeat him in an epic boss battle. Players will also encounter a new character, Milla. A rogue Magi who is mute, she finds herself befriending the Scrolr because of it.

The new update will also include puzzles based around new powers, new friendships, and new enemies. Achievements will be added to the game, as well as a brand new hidden mini-game for players to find.

Quite a few indie titles receive continued support after their initial release. That will be no different with psyscrolr, with developer Actos Games confirming that DLC is planned after launch. By doing so, Actos hopes to keep players interested with their title.

CEO Jonathan Meyer stated in an announcement yesterday:

“We feel the story of psyscrolr serves itself better updated over time. A more episodic feel invites players to want to come back to the world, continue their save, and find more. An example are the letters strewn throughout certain levels of the game. There are more secrets we plan to add in a further update, as well as hidden mini-games added to the game to enhance replayability with leaderboards and Miiverse features planned.”
