An array of bosses that players will face off against in Hibernian Workshop’s hardcore sidescrolling RPG Dark Devotion has been shown off in the latest trailer for the title.
Clocking in at a little over a minute long, the teaser shows off a handful of flagship enemies. The visual design of these boss characters draws inspiration from multiple sources, including ghouls, Templar knights, angels, and more, all adapted to Dark Devotion‘s macabre, gothic-inspired pixel art style.
Alongside the new footage, publisher The Arcade Crew has officially announced that the game will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Switch early this year, though a concrete release date is not yet forthcoming.
The game casts players as a pilgrim aiming to prove their faith in a temple that actively aims to kill visitors. The storytelling takes inspiration from the likes of Dark Souls, being baked into the world around the player. Meanwhile, Dark Devotion‘s currency of Faith is acquired by felling foes and spent to unlock additional paths, chests, and more.
