Frontier Hunter: Erza's Wheel Of Fortune is an action-packed anime-style Metroidvania that brings players an immersive gaming experience with 2.5D fantasy backgrounds and cell-shaded characters.

Combined with the charming characters and challenging monster design, players will experience the fantasy world in its finest form. Hidden in the alternate universe are large amounts of unknown monsters. Each monster possesses unique magical cores which are important ingredients for the growth of the characters. Exploration is the core element of Frontier Hunter. Players will traverse through the dimly lit forest, the dark abyss, floating islands, deep underground caves, and giant cities to explore and gather resources, accompanied by the outstanding BGMs composed by iispkboy and lihao.

Two years ago, Erza obtained the legendary hunter license and became a rising star in the imperial force. Under the rule of the wise and able emperor, the empire grows steadily. As one of the core forces in the expansion, Erza has won many military exploits. In this fantasy world of swords and magic, Erza will lead an exploration team and start an epic adventure. She will fight unknown monsters and solve mysteries of the world. Why would the fiend become a hair clip? You’ll find the answer in the game.

The first part of the Frontier Hunter is focused on the adventure trip of two girls with fun scenes and storytelling. Shizuka Ito will voice Erza and the other voice-overs will be done by voice actors from renowned voice actor agencies like Ken Production Company. The sound director for the game’s sound effects has handled the audio recording of multiple games for Capcom. As the player progresses through the game, they can discover hidden secrets and lore that unveil a more serious tone to the plot.

Developer IceSitruuna announce that Frontier Hunter: Erza’s Wheel of Fortune will join Steam Early Access on December 15, 2022.

“Early Access already has a stable Combat System and RPG System, but the plot story is only roughly 30% of the full version has 7 major areas with 9 BOSSes and all relative exploration and cultivation elements.”

“The Early Access version is around 3-4 hours of playtime. We’ll add considerable hidden elements and try to make the full release worth over 12 hours of playtime in the first playthrough. We hope to make the game worth 30-40 hours of playtime if the players want to find all hidden elements. Also, we will consider adding what the players want as extras in the full release.”

Key Features:

  • Metroidvania level design with rich exploration content and an interconnected world.
  • Diverse and personalized character progression system. Players may choose their favorite style and character progression. At the same time, it possesses a traditional RPG equipment system.
  • More stable and smoother controls. Players may use various animation cancel to execute moves and actions.
  • Advanced cell-shading technique. In-game characters have richer dynamic expressions.
  • Fast-paced and responsive combat system. All enemies will have different hit reactions when hit by different moves. BOSS will also show a myriad of staggered animations.
  • BOSS fights that stress on strategies. Familiarize yourself with the BOSS move set, improve your reaction time, fight at an appropriate distance, and grab onto opportunities to deal continuous damage. With the character switching and support system, Erza will no longer fight alone.
  • Exquisite 2.5D background. The gorgeous scenery will leave a lasting impression in your memories. The game utilizes 3D technology that can execute a grand display of actions that are impossible using 2D engines.
  • Charming mini-games. Whether it is breaching through the Grand Storm or Base Defense, rather than using a cut-scene animation, we believe using interactive mini-games can further enhance players’ experiences.

Frontier Hunter: Erza’s Wheel of Fortune is in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for 2023.
