Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots for the game:

Developed, on behalf of PVP Games, by Bkom Studios, renowned for their collaboration with US Majors on “AAA” franchises which has resulted in great action-adventure games, Zorro The Chronicles, The Game is a fun and action-packed video game targeted at all public, as is its hero character Zorro, beloved for nearly a century by young and old alike around the world.  

The game is adapted from Cyber Group Studios’ hit animated series Zorro The Chronicles, produced in collaboration with John Gertz’s Zorro Production Inc. The international blockbuster show has been sold in over 100 countries and nominated at the 13th edition of the TV France International Export Awards.

Offering a unique and bloodless gameplay and features inspired by best-in-class action/ adventure games, Zorro The Chronicles, The Game is combining thrilling combat, exciting exploration, and immersive experience.

Embark on an epic adventure set in nineteenth-century Spanish California. Play as the legendary Zorro or his fearless sister Ines. Protect the weak and innocent townspeople from the evil general and his soldiers. Develop skills to become a master swordsman. Disarm your enemies with a whip, a sword, spectacular moves, and humour! Deflect their attacks with acrobatic moves and lightning-quick reflexes. Leave your mark on them with a ‘Z’ from the tip of your sword!

Adventure awaits!
Swashbuckling fun!
Spectacular moves and hilarious fights!

Don Diego de la Vega, the beloved son of a respected landlord, is returning to California after five long years in Spain. Longing for his father and sister Ines, his heart is filled with joy in anticipation of seeing them again and returning to his peaceful town. However, things are no longer the same as when he left. The town is now ruled by Captain Monasterio whose greed only rivals his ambition. Poor townspeople who cannot pay exorbitant new taxes are sent to jail, and their families are forced to work off the debt. The once joyful community is now a place of oppression and hopelessness.

Don Diego cannot stand the injustice he sees, but at the same time, he knows he cannot openly fight Monasterio and his soldiers. However, where there’s a will, there’s a way. Don Diego acts upon the old Spanish saying, “If you can’t fight like a lion, become a fox”, and this is how the legend of Zorro is born!

  • Live a hero’s life, and fight for justice. Play as the legendary Zorro or his sister Ines. Develop your skills by unlocking better stats, new moves, and talismans.
  • Master your fighting technique and become the best swordsman in Spanish California! Enjoy fun and rewarding swashbuckling combat featuring hilarious yet spectacular finishing moves.
  • Choose your playthrough style. Adapt your approach to a wide variety of enemy types. Use ninja-like stealth to take your opponents by surprise, sneak around them to explore your surroundings, or engage them in action-packed sword fights.
  • Enjoy beautifully designed, colorful locations. Explore the game’s world with eye-catching visuals as breathtaking as in “Zorro The Chronicles” animated series.
