The Blasphemous announcement trailer makes one think of Castlevania crossed with Dark Souls
1 / 9
Blasphemous looks like a carefully penned love letter to the action-platformers of our youth
2 / 9
Fast-paced, skilled combat of a hack-n-slash game blends with a charge meter that can be used for spells and special abilities
3 / 9
The game is also brutal in the most explicit sense of the word with violence that transcends its pixilated presentation.
4 / 9
The project began as a Kickstarter campaign and smashed it goals, adding additional game modes, voice acting, and alternate skins
5 / 9
Lore also seems to be well-integrated into the game, as opposed to only action.
6 / 9
If Blasphemous ends up being like the Castelvania or Shovel Knight games, we will likely have a strong addition to any gaming library
7 / 9
Blasphemous will be releasing on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch with a release date TBA, though it is not likely far off as we are only a week out from E3
