GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon, the brand new hack and slash with a distinctive style from Konami Digital Entertainment if out now via Steam Early Access.
Cutting its way onto PC today, GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon is more than an unpronounceable mystery. This gorgeous adventure is a 2D hack and slash roguevania quite obviously inspired by the original Getsu Fūma Den title that landed on the Family Computer back in 1987. Now, this new adventure is available via Steam via Early Access for $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99 RRP.
While the Early Access release of any game does mean that there is plenty of development to go, GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon clearly has something of a pedigree already. The gorgeous ukiyo-e art style and vibrant animations that spill bold lines of red across the screen are enough to grab our attention in the recent reveal trailer, which we’ve included above.
For those of you looking for something a bit more substantial about the Early Access version of GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon, you’ll spend your time in GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon defending the world from hellspawn. A reanimated demon lord, a colossal centipede, and a five-headed hydra are just some of the obstacles that you’ll need to take down as you journey through a hellish world that changes with each attempt. Thankfully, as the hero of this roguelite, you’ll be able to master the rhythm of intense sword-fighting action, picking your time to strike and using a wide range of different weapon types to push these demons back. Along the way, players will be able to craft new abilities and sub-weapons, collect upgrades, and use customizable weapons, to make each run in this amazing looking adventure different each time.
At launch, the Early Access version of GetsuFumaDen features eight equally beautiful Ukiyo-e stages with numerous boss fights and is playable in 11 different languages. The Early Access bundle also includes a port of the original Japanese Famicom game as a bonus, along with a digital artbook and original mini soundtrack. You can grab a copy over on Steam now, while Nintendo Switch owners will have to wait until 2022 to grab their copy.
