Blasphemous' Visceral Reveal Trailer Shows Off Brutal Combat, Giant Babies, And More
Blasphemous is an upcoming Metroidvania from Team17 and The Game Kitchen. It boasts darkly beautiful pixel-art and devastating combat.
Blasphemous is a dark and deeply punishing Metroidvania from the team at Team17. You play as The Penitent One and must save the world from a terrible fate. As you explore the “nightmarish world of twisted religion”, you’ll find hidden secrets, execute disgusting monsters with overwhelming combos, and find items that help you dominate the colossal bosses. Watch the grotesque trailer below to see the game in action.
This game looks incredible. The devs at The Game Kitchen have obviously cribbed some of their style from games like Dark Souls. That said, the level of viscera and carnage is still a little upsetting. Needless to say, this is not a game for the squeamish. Alongside the gore, is some brutal combat that should please genre fans.
Your character wields a sword named Mea Culpa. This sizeable blade was born from guilt itself and lets you carve up your foes as you traverse the world. Once an enemy is injured enough, you can execute them. These moves let you “unleash your wrath” in attacks that will leave your opponents lying dismembered on the floor.
As is the genre staple, Blasphemous will have plenty of secrets for you to find. Each relic, rosary bead, prayer, and sword heart you find can be used to customize your build. You’ll be able to easily experiment with different combinations to find one that suits your playstyle.
And, I can’t end this article without mentioning the massive boss battles. The trailer shows off a number of gigantic enemies that you’ll have to conquer and, given the gruesome design, I would only expect the final release to be filled with monstrous creatures.
I can’t stress enough how darkly beautiful this game looks. It is certainly something I’m keeping an eye on. Blasphemous is coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One soon. Keep your eyes on Dualshockers for more.
