Today, Spain-based developer The Game Kitchen announced that its upcoming 2D dark fantasy action-platformer, Blasphemous, is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in addition to the previously announced PC, Mac, and Linux.
As you may know, back at the end of May The Game Kitchen announced that Blasphemous had launched on Kickstarter, seeking $50,000 USD. At the moment of writing this, the campaign has raised over $160,000 USD with 13 days still left to go.
Upon its announcement, The Game Kitchen said it was looking into releasing the game on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PS Vita (alongside the aforementioned and confirmed platforms of PC, Mac, and Linux); however the release of these said versions was entirely determinant on how much funds the campaign could raise. And I guess now it has raised enough (or funding came outside via publisher), but apparently not enough to bring the game to the ol’ PlayStation Vita, which is still up in the air.
As we previously reported, Blasphemous is a game that combines fast-paced, skill combat of a hack-n-slash game with a deep and evocative narrative core told across a huge universe and hand-crafted non-linear levels.
In it, you play as The Penitent One, a rogue nomad tackling the evil in the world of Orthodoxia, which is ruled by a series of enormous and fierce creatures, and is said to be as open as it is oppressive, alone. You are the last survivor of a congregation called the The Silent Sorrow, a group that was punished by being thrown into the great Abyss of the Eternal Grief, where you will fight and slay creatures, each bigger and more fearsome than the last.
The game is scheduled to release sometime in Q1 2019, aka nearly two years from now. Below, you can check out its announcement trailer:
