'Battle Chasers: Nightwar' (ALL) Introduces Alumon, the Devil Hunter - Trailer

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a classic JRPG where combat meets action-packed dungeons and stylish storytelling.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is an RPG inspired by the classic console greats, featuring deep dungeon diving, turn-based combat presented in a classic JRPG format, and tons of secrets, story and randomly-generated replay goodness. The best-selling comic book Battle Chasers was first released in the late 90s and quickly generated a passionate cult following. Now Joe Madureira, the creator of the comics, and his founding partner Ryan Stefanelli are crafting a new adventure for the iconic heroes as a video game for PC and consoles.

The Grey Line. An impenetrable wall of mist hovering over the West Waters, stretching endless from north to south, and towering from ocean crest to dark sky above. 

Nothing has ever come from, or survived entering, the historic monolith. The great hero Aramus felt a calling from the Grey Line and crossed, despite the dangers. And like countless warriors, vagabonds, fugitives and fortune seekers before him, never returned. Now, his daughter Gully and her unlikely band of adventurers venture into the mist to uncover her father’s mission. 

Along the way they'll meet friend and foe alike while piecing together the silent history of the Grey Line, and the dark secrets within.

Fans of the Battle Chasers franchise will witness the action-packed debut of an all-new hero: Alumon the Devil Hunter. Once a member of a sacred order of monster hunters, Alumon was banished from the order and now operates alone as bounty hunter, taking contracts and doing odd jobs for money, from exorcisms and assassinations if the job requires it (and sometimes even if it doesn’t).

Though Alumon possesses the traditional magic and light-based abilities of the Battle Priests of his order, he has taken his study of the dark arts further than most. Many of his spells and abilities call upon dark magic, often bringing harm to himself or others. Meddling with these dark powers has physically changed Alumon, so he is easily recognized by his frost white hair and serpent-like eyes. For that reason, Alumon usually wears a mask.

The new Battle Chasers: Nightwar video will also serve as the animated introduction for the game and was inspired by title sequences of TV classic series from the 1980s, like Thundercats, Silverhawks and Defenders of the Earth.

Key Features:

  • Plan for survival. Choose three of the heroes you've unlocked, fill your travel backpack with items from your stash, make sure you've chosen the best equipment and abilities for each hero... and then strike out.
  • Explore an overworld presented in classic form, peppered with hidden dungeons, rare bosses and randomly appearing characters.
  • Old-school combat inspired by the console RPG greats, with a unique two-tiered mana system and turn-based initiative featuring random buffs and debuffs on initiative slots.
  • Action oriented, randomly-generated dungeons loaded with traps, puzzles and secrets. Use each hero's unique dungeon skills to survive!
  • Non-linear story driven by the discovery of lore on items, landmarks and secret elements in the world. Discovering these will both provide deeper insight into the mysterious Lost Vale, and also reward lore points, which are used to upgrade the heroes' different abilities.
  • Truly key story moments will be depicted in gorgeous, traditional 2D animation from Powerhouse Animation Studios. For these, sit back and enjoy.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar will launch on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch starting October 3rd, 2017 for EUR/USD 29,99.
