PLAYISM and WSS Playground, in collaboration with Why So Serious, Inc., proudly unveiled Blade Chimera, a Metroidvania masterpiece by Team Ladybug, arriving on Nintendo Switch and Steam in Spring 2024.
In Blade Chimera, Team Ladybug crafts a desolate world where Lux, a demon-turned-Lumina Sword, becomes the linchpin for manipulating the past. Navigate challenges with a diverse arsenal, featuring swift daggers and long-range guns, allowing you to tailor your combat strategy. Explore the intricacies of a skill tree system, earning points with each level to unlock game-changing abilities. Immerse yourself in Team Ladybug’s signature pixel art, bringing the cyberpunk dystopia to life with breathtaking detail.
The announcement comes with an exhilarating trailer, offering a glimpse into the gorgeously animated pixelated world and the dynamic gameplay that awaits. As Shin, a Demon Hunter recovers lost memories alongside Lumina Sword, each recaptured skill transforms Lux, amplifying Shin’s strength and unlocking uncharted territories.
After watching the trailer it gives vibes of other Metroidvania games I grew up with, which is a major plus for me. Set in a near-future besieged by demons, Blade Chimera weaves Shin’s journey with the city’s mysterious transformation. This Metroidvania promises a battle against external foes and an internal odyssey, navigating the labyrinth of memories to uncover the truth. The trailer hints at a captivating narrative, intricate gameplay, and the mesmerizing pixel art that defines Team Ladybug’s creations, building anticipation for a gaming experience like no other.
