XSEED Games has released an E3 2016 trailer, new screenshots and details at E3 2016 for the 2D action-platformer Exile’s End for the PS Vita and PS4.
Exile’s End is a collaboration between Tokyo-based independent game developer Matt Fielding and several talented Japanese game industry veterans, backed by Japanese publisher Marvelous. The game is a remake of Fielding’s first independent release, Inescapable, building and expanding on the original idea by adding an atmospheric soundtrack, significantly more enemies, animated cutscenes, greater story depth, a greatly expanded world, and multiple endings.
Inspired by classic “cinematic platformers” like Out of This World/Another World and Flashback: The Quest for Identity, Exile’s End plays out as an exploration-driven side-scrolling adventure through a massive, interconnected laboratory and mining complex on a moody, lonely alien world, and offers a variety of diverse locations to explore and puzzles to solve through skilled platforming and clever usage of the game’s myriad weapons.
- An enormous, interconnected world of over 1200 screens to explore, featuring adventure-style puzzles mixed with intense platforming action. Daring jumps, complex enemy patterns, stealthy subversions, hidden treasure chambers and more await, accompanied by Metroidvania-style progression and Another World-inspired atmospherics!
- Animated cutscenes expand upon a branching story of ancient riddles and modern-day hubris, posing the question, “What is the nature of true heroism?” Player decisions will guide them through a deep, expansive mystery that ultimately leads to one of two possible endings.
- Soundtrack by Keiji Yamagishi, legendary composer for Ninja Gaiden (NES), Tecmo Super Bowl, Dynasty Warriors, and numerous other classic games.
- Art and graphics by Japanese industry legends whose works include Sword of Mana, Guilty Gear, and an unreleased Sega Megadrive/Genesis version of Ninja Gaiden.
Exile’s End will be released for the PS Vita and PS4 in North America in summer 2016.
