The Skylia Prophecy
7 Raven Studios have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: The Skylia Prophecy, an action RPG. It will be released on April 23rd in Europe and North America.
Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots for the game:
The Skylia Prophecy challenges you to play as Mirenia, an 18-year-old girl on a quest for redemption. After unleashing an evil power when she was a teenager, she is now on her way to Tirkin Fortress to perform an ancient spell that should help her vanquish the very evil she unleashed three years ago. Will you prevail, or will you end up among the dead?
The Skylia Prophecy is a retro-inspired side scrolling action RPG set in a medieval fantasy world. As Mirenia, you will journey throughout the lands and towns, explore ancient dungeons and battle hordes of the undead in this hard as hell adventure inspired by the ‘kill the player’ philosophy of the ‘Souls’ games. Along your way you will meet the people of these lands, who will ask you to help them, sell you powerful items and reveal secrets to aid you on your journey. By interacting with the townsfolk, you will ultimately receive rewards that make the game easier in the long run – thus, you set the difficulty for the final stretch yourself!
The Skylia Prophecy will instantly appeal to fans of the genre and will challenge you on every turn with its hard but fair difficulty, powerful bosses and exploration-based riddles. Built from the ground up on all major consoles the game offers a dangerous fantasy world with epic quests.
