Digiart Interactive and N-Fusion Interactive have released a new Destiny trailer for Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards on Nintendo Switch.

“Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards take players to a place we’ve never seen explored in gaming before,” explains Digiart Interactive founder Antonio Hernandez.

“We think Inca mythology and Latin American history is really fascinating, and there’s a huge population of Latin American gamers out there who aren’t reflected in their favourite pastime. We wanted to celebrate this oft-neglected culture – and create a kick-ass swashbuckling adventure along the way!”

This standalone action RPG stars the comic book heroine Aluna, who is the warrior daughter of a Spanish conquistador and the South American nature goddess Pachamama.

Raised in early 16th century Spain, she escaped to the New World where she discovered that it was her true homeland.

In Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards, Aluna sets out on a quest through Inca mythology to restore the amulet her goddess mother entrusted to her to fulfill her true destiny.

The game has looked to combine “the deep action-RPG mechanics of Diablo with the revisionist mythology of God of War,” and, based around Inca lore, you can expect to encounter mythological gods, beasts, and tales that formed the backbone of 16th-century Colombian culture.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
