Songbringer: Coming to Nintendo™ Switch Next Week

By | Double Eleven, Songbringer

Great news! Songbringer is bounding its way onto Nintendo™ Switch next week – launching on the 31st of May for America and Europe regions, with a Japanese release coming soon.

Songbringer launches on Nintendo Switch with all console updates (including the newly expanded combat and items) as well as the free DLC The Trial of Ren.

Check out the trailer below and keep your eyes peeled ready for the 31st. LET THE MOBILE HAT-THROWING COMMENCE.

Songbringer: Free DLC and Game Update Coming Next Week

By | Double Eleven, Songbringer

Greetings, space cadets! Great news for Songbringer fans: one-man-development-magician Wizard Fu hasn’t stopped working. Since the game launched last august, Nathanael has been beavering away on Thai beaches, in order to bring you a major update addressing combat (new moves!), enemies (hit boxes!) and items (A SHIRT!) and a brand spanking new free DLC: The Trial of Ren. Check out the new trailer!

The update and DLC will be available, at no cost, from 24th April 2018 for PS4 and Steam, and from the 27th for Xbox One and Windows 10.

Here’s our marketing bumph for The Trial of Ren:

Lead Roq on an additional quest to track down Ren, a former Songbringer crewmate. Discover Ren’s whereabouts and complete his combat trial to reach spiritual ascension and develop new meditation powers. In Ren’s constantly shifting dungeon, you’ll fight your way through waves of remixed enemies and monsters from across Ekzera’s dungeons and overworld.

The DLC contains new items, including:

  • Eiael’s Snare – An equippable ring, which increases the overall difficulty of the game and expands bosses’ special attacks, but also increases your end-game score.
  • Flamethrower – A craftable weapon used to launch trails of fire, which damages enemies on contact.
  • Lightning Boots – A craftable footwear upgrade which leaves behind tiny electrical charges for your enemies to stumble upon.

PS4 Dynamic Theme and Avatars

PS4 players in EU and US regions will also be able to download a free Dynamic Theme from the 24th, as well as a load of Songbringer themed avatars. Here’s what the theme looks like.

Songbringer coming to PS4, Xbox One and Steam this Summer!

By | Double Eleven, Songbringer

We’re delighted to officially announce our partnership with one-man development studio, Wizard Fu. Together, we’re bringing Songbringer, a procedurally generated action RPG set in a 13,000 B.C. Milky Way, to PlayStation® 4, Xbox One and Steam for PC, Mac and Linux this summer.

During times of peace the people party. Roq is a carefree dude just cruising the galaxy in search of the ultimate party aboard the space-faring art party ship, Songbringer. Roq wakes up, shirtless and confused on a strange planet. When Roq accidentally awakens an ancient evil army, the galaxy as he knows it is thrown into war. Now it’s up to Roq and his trusty robot sidekick, Jib, to save the galaxy from total annihilation.

Songbringer is a gorgeous procedurally-generated world populated with ten dungeons in 3/4­ perspective. Enter a six-­letter world seed code when starting a new adventure, granting you the possibility to explore 308 million unique environment combinations – no adventure is ever the same, unless you share your code with friends.

A rich, immersive story line and a fantastical sci-fi universe littered with secrets, Songbringer introduces the unique concept of hidden realms. As Roq, learn to utilize the powers of the rare cacti you will find in the world to see things that aren’t there (or are they?): doors, items and other loot that can help you on your journey.

With action-packed combat and several unique weapons to choose from, including the epic and humming nanosword, the boomerang-like top hat, the ghost sword projectile, and plenty of bombs, Songbringer allows players to go it alone in the galaxy or with a friend – local co-op allows for a second player to join you as Jib, your robot companion with a strange propensity for moustaches. Overcome crowded mobs, virus androids, gigantic bosses and solve a series of puzzles to get you back where you belong; at peace and partying the night away on the Songbringer as you sail the solar winds of the galaxy with your friends.

Check out some beta gameplay footage in preparation!

 

Songbringer will be on display at PAX East in Boston in March.  For more information, check out songbringer.com and be sure to follow @wizard_fu on Twitter.
