If you were around in the late 90s or early 2000s, Zorro was a big name in Western media, with films, video games, and more. Since then… not so much, but developer Bkom Studios has announced a new game based on the popular character known as Zorro: The Chronicles, coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One this fall.
As discovered by Gematsu, the game is actually based of a cartoon of the same name, and is seen to be an action-adventure game in the trailer, with a sprinkling of the character’s signature stealth. Watching some clips of the show, it genuinely does seem to do a good job of capturing the spirit, but we’ll wait to see how it plays.
“Don Diego de la Vega, the beloved son of a respected landlord, is returning to California after five long years in Spain. Longing for his father and sister Ines, his heart is filled with joy in anticipation of seeing them again and returning to his peaceful town. However, things are no longer the same as when he left. The town is now ruled by Captain Monasterio whose greed only rivals his ambition. Poor townspeople who cannot pay exorbitant new taxes are sent to jail, and their families are forced to work off the debt. The once joyful community is now a place of oppression and hopelessness.”
There’s no confirmed release date as of yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you Zorro fans out there up to date with any new information on the upcoming title. In the meantime, those classic films with Antonio Banderas are in the wild and well worth a re-watch, we reckon.
