Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team’s upcoming title magics together. Shoot ‘em up gameplay, Metroidvania design, and deckbuilding mechanics in an adventure against invading war golems.
Team17 has today announced their partnership with Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team (aka ‘Super Mega Team’) to publish the upcoming Metroidvania, The Knight Witch. Combining fast-paced shoot ‘em up combat with Metroidvania traversal and exploration alongside a magic deckbuilding system, The Knight Witch takes players to the underground city of Dungeonidas. The once peaceful metropolis has been besieged by a mysterious threat and its unrelenting army of war golems. Here it falls to the protagonist – Rayne – to be named a Knight Witch and use her powers to fight back and save those she loves. The Knight Witch will launch on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC in 2022.
With over 30 unique spell cards to choose from in a magic deck-building system and Knight abilities to upgrade and improve, players can customize Rayne’s build to fit their playstyle, taking down the invading golems in the most effective way. Like other Knight Witches, Rayne thrives off the love and adoration of Dungeonidas’ citizens, growing ever stronger with their continued support – players can choose to capitalize on this, lying to the adoring denizens for their own means, or they can be honest, sharing the painful truth to the masses.
