Severed is an upcoming action game for PS Vita from Drinkbox Studios, the developer behind Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack! and Guacamelee!. Not much has been seen of the game in a while, but a new trailer was dropped today and even more of the game will be revealed at the upcoming PlayStation Experience.
The game will feature dungeon-crawling and intense hack-and-slash combat. Check out the new footage below:
In addition to the new footage and upcoming playable demo, even more details about the game’s hero was revealed:
In Severed you play as a one-armed warrior named Sasha, who wakes up in a surreal new world after a catastrophic event. After obtaining a living sword from a mysterious cloaked creature, Sasha sets off on an epic journey in search of her missing family.
Combat is done primarily using the touchscreen, but Severed is definitely not a casual game. In fact, we think that using the touchscreen for sword combat has allowed us to make the game a much more deep and complex experience than button-based sword fighting ever could have been.
