Publisher 101XP and developer Troglobytes Games have announced Blind Fate: Edo No Yami as their upcoming 2D action-platformer, set to release next year.
In Blind Fate: Edo No Yami, players step into the shoes of blind cyber samurai Yami and follow him on his journey to dispense the Shogun's justice across a dystopian, cyberpunk-infused Edo-era Japan.
Wielding both a katana and a hand cannon, Yami must vanquish a variety of opponents – including "noble samurais, laser sentries, killer robots, and uncanny creatures from Japanese folklore" – while also solving environmental puzzles.
Blind Fate: Edo No Yami Announced
Here are Blind Fate: Edo No Yami's key features, as detailed in an emailed press release:
The Way of The Samurai
- Yami is a samurai demon hunter. Following the path of an honorbound warrior, it is his duty to not only destroy his master’s enemies, but also protect civilians from bloodthirsty robotic abominations.
Shadows in Motion
- Continued survival will require you to learn to detect danger using sounds, vibration, and heat emissions. Heed your senses and strike at your foes when they least expect it!
- The thin blade of your katana and the heavy hand cannon perfectly complement each other in combat: alternate lightning-fast strikes with incinerating firepower to destroy
Blind Fate: Edo No Yami is expected to release at some point in 2021 and headed to PC, Xbox, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
You can keep track of the game through its Steam page and get a glimpse of how it plays in the announcement trailer below.
