Focus Home Interactive and Limestone Games have revealed that Aeon Must Die! is in development for Nintendo Switch.
Pitched as “an existential sci-fi massacre,” this galaxy-spanning brawler has been created with an anime-inspired art style and promises to deliver “a massive story of betrayal, love, and revenge across a broken universe.”
Betrayed and left for dead by his generals, Aeon, weakened and without a body to exact his revenge, desperately merges with you to escape.
Bound together, you must travel across the futuristic city of Pantheon to destroy or subdue those who betrayed Aeon, while fighting for your mind, free will and control of your body.
This beat ’em up game has been built around “breakneck, risk-reward gameplay, innovative tactical fighting, and an RPG alignment system that tracks how you behave as a warrior.”
You will choose whether to succumb to Aeon’s will and unleash his power but lose yourself in the process, or choose to remain free but at the cost of your strength.
Aeon Must Die! will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
