'Souldiers' Gets Slightly Delayed, New Release Date

by Rainier on May 6, 2022 @ 9:44 a.m. PDT

Souldiers wraps Metroidvania exploration, crunchy Soulslike combat and precision platforming into one gorgeous pixelated package.

Players take on the role of either a scout, caster or archer, battling for freedom in Terragaya, a mystical land on the borderline between life and death.

While out fighting for the glory of your kingdom, you and your fellow soldiers are whisked away to Terragaya, a mystical land on the fringes of the afterlife. Your task is to locate the Guardian and move on to the next world. The hitch? You and your compatriots never actually died.

Battle your way to the heart of the mystery: Outwit cunning enemies, solve nefarious puzzles, upgrade your character and explore every corner of a dazzling, intricate 16-bit world. Souldiers is a handcrafted retro-inspired epic for the ages.

Originally planned for a May 19th launch on all platforms, the release has been pushed back to June 2nd on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, XOne, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam).

“We’re very pleased with how Souldiers is coming along overall, but we still have a few bugs to work out and we want to ensure that when we release the game - and ask consumers to spend their hard earned money on it - that they’re getting a bug-free premium experience,” said Alberto Hernández, creative director at Retro Forge. “We know how much it sucks to have to wait longer, but we assure everyone that it will be worth the wait. We’re a small team, and developing a game of Souldiers’ scale, during a global pandemic no less, saw us overcoming many unforeseen challenges, so we really appreciate your patience as we polish up Souldiers into the refined retro experience you all deserve..”

Key Features:

  • Choose Your Class: Unleash the fury of your sword with the scout, summon the wrath of elements with the caster, or rain down arrows on your foes with the archer.
  • Gripping Combat: Slash, parry and dodge your way through an ever-evolving roster of enemies, upgrading your skills and equipment to find a combat style that’s perfect for you.
  • An Interconnected World: Discover a sprawling handcrafted landscape filled with treasures, tough-as-nails bosses and secret pathways.
  • 16-Bit Sensation: Terragaya comes to life with vibrant world-class pixel art packed to the brim with details.
  • Smart Moves: Solve environmental puzzles and leap from place to place using an ever-expanding moveset.

Souldiers is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, XOne, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) on June 2, 2022.
