Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Today, THQ Nordic revealed the animated intro for Battle Chasers: Nightwar, which was produced by Powerhouse Animation (the studio behind the Castlevania anime series on Netflix).

This animated intro introduces a brand new hero: Alumon, the Devil Hunter. Here’s some details:

Once a member of a sacred order of monster hunters, Alumon was banished from the order and now operates alone as bounty hunter, taking contracts and doing odd jobs for money, from exorcisms and assassinations if the job requires it (and sometimes even if it doesn’t).

Though Alumon possesses the traditional magic and light-based abilities of the Battle Priests of his order, he has taken his study of the dark arts further than most. Many of his spells and abilities call upon dark magic, often bringing harm to himself or others. Meddling with these dark powers has physically changed Alumon, so he is easily recognized by his frost white hair and serpent-like eyes. For that reason, Alumon usually wears a mask.

And here’s one lone screenshot for Alumon:

Battle Chasers: Nightwar (Switch – eShop) comes out on October 3rd in Europe and North America.
