Surprise of the chef at the independent department, the studio Steel Mantis unveiled a successor to Valfaris, his game of action-platform filled with Metal and Pixels Credam. As if to get out of its comfort zone, the team lifts the veil on a suite taking the shape of a shoot’em up in 2.5D horizontal scrolling.
Announced for the end of the year 2022 on PC and all the consoles of the market, Valfaris: Mecha Therion adopts a surprise turn while maintaining the same protagonist, therion, except that this one Pilot now a colossus of … Metal, obviously. In his quest to finish with the Diabolical Lord Vroll, Therion will use the exceptional firepower of his MECHA company to make their way in hostile territory. It is known that it will be possible to configure an arsenal based on mingle, ballistic and destructive weapons or to gain blood ore to improve the weapons and accessories of the machine. For those who want to deepen the subject, Thomas Jenns of Steel Mantis comments on the genesis of the project on the PlayStation Blog.
The game takes place in the same world as Valfaris and anyone who played will recognize a certain aesthetic in the second opus. We also keep some features, such as weapons and their improvements (and you will find a lot from the first game), a Risk / Reward Checkpoint System, a lot of Gore and another metal band composed by Curt Victor Bryant. But it’s mostly the gameplay, the most fundamental aspect, which lies intimately Valfaris and Valfaris: Mecha Therion. We think that players who love our games appreciate the challenge they represent and take pleasure in handing a game at the Old-School atmosphere who will make them smile. And that’s exactly what we are looking to accomplish with Valfaris : Mecha Therion , can we read.
