Rejoice, PlayStation Vita owners! We now have official confirmation that another game will be released on the portable platform, and it just so happens to be ScourgeBringer. Also launching on PS4 on 22nd April 2021, we’ve heard very good things about this one following its release on other platforms last year. In fact, our friends over at Nintendo Life awarded it a 9/10. “ScourgeBringer is a wonderfully slick and addictive roguelite adventure that flings its players headlong into non-stop frenetic combat and never lets up.” It’s priced at £15.29/$16.99 on other consoles, so we have to assume it’ll be the same on PS4 and PS Vita. Check out a new trailer above to get a proper taste of ScourgeBringer.
What’s even better is that the game will be getting a physical release on both systems. The PS4 version will be put out by Pix’n Love Publishing, with both a standard and collector’s edition (500 copies) available, while PA Vita copies are being handled by Play-Asia. The latter hasn’t been listed just yet, however.
ScourgeBringer aims to channel the mystery and rawness of an early rogue-platformer, with fluid control, aerial combat, pixel graphics and a punchy soundtrack. The story follows hero Kyhra, who is sent away to uncover the secrets of an Eldritch monolith which is threatening to destroy her world. Armed with her trusty combat drone, she must shoot and slash her way through the infinite depths of an ever-changing dungeon, wherein gigantic bosses, ancient machines, strange ghosts and untold secrets from previous explorers await. There is no backtracking, as the game’s structure follows a procedural combination of pre-built challenge rooms, not unlike the Binding of Isaac.
