Chinese developer Wildfiregame has announced a 2D side scrolling action game, The Oriental Exorcist.
The Steam page has more details about the setting of the game:
“The Eastern Exorcist is a stunning 2D side-scrolling action RPG set in a fictitious oriental world with the infestation of vicious demon monsters. Play as a skilled exorcist against chaotic evil to fight your way through the brutal world, and experience unforeseen entanglements of complex beings.”
Additionally, The Oriental Exorcist will adopt a hand-drawn frame-by-frame animation method to highlight the actions of the “Dragon Man” to ensure expressiveness and a smooth combat experience. The game also features a stamina mechanic, which emphasizes timing and distance in order for players to execute enemies with different types of skills.
The Oriental Exorcist is slated for release in 2020 on PC and PlayStation 4.
