Through press release means, Curve Digital and Toronto-based Sky 9 Games have joined forces to reveal A Knight’s Quest.
Zelda-like in nature and design, A Knight’s Quest is said to be a colourful action-adventure experience with an old-school touch. Promising fun combat, fluid platforming and lots of style, its press release states that “Playing as the hero has never been more rewarding.”
A Knight’s Quest is the story of a kindhearted but clumsy adventurer named Rusty, who accidentally sets off a chain of events that threaten to destroy his world. In order to right his wrong, he’ll need to “solve mind-bending conundrums, fight challenging enemies, defeat huge bosses and platform his way through a fantastic open world in this lavish take on classic action-adventure games.”
The aforementioned combat includes stylish sword and shield flourishes, while the platforming includes things like wall running and rail grinding. Needless to say, it’s an updated take on the classic 3D Zelda formula.
A Knight’s Quest is said to be thirty hours in length, and is headed to Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PC this fall.
