This morning, Focus Home Interactive took to YouTube, to unleash the first gameplay trailer for Passtech Games’ Masters of Anima. If that developer sounds familiar, it’s because they’re the ones behind the popular indie game, Space Run.
Heading to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Switch, Masters of Anima is an Overlord-inspired game wherein players must task up to 100 minions with doing their bidding. This will be handled through summons, and will allow for what the press release promises to be “strategic, action-packed battles.” The aforementioned gameplay trailer backs all this up, by showing off a lot of minion-based combat, in addition to a very colourful and artistic visual style.
In Masters of Anima, “you play as Otto, an apprentice of Anima, who is able to wield incredible powers that are the source of all life in the world of Spark. You covet the rank of Master so that you can finally marry your beloved fiancée Ana – who is now a captive of the terrible Zahr and his fearsome Golems!
Go to the aid of your future bride, using the powers of Anima to summon an army of magical Guardians in your quest to defeat Zahr’s dreaded Golems. Learn to control new types of Guardians on your adventure, each with their own unique talents and abilities useful to explore the vast world of Spark and reveal its secrets, as well as to take down the formidable bosses that stand in your way. As your victories rack up, acquire new powers and abilities for both yourself and your Guardians, ultimately becoming a true Master of Anima.”
Masters of Anima is expected to be released sometime this spring.
