13 minutes of ‘2D Souls-like’ Salt and Sanctuary gameplay

Ska's latest "legitimately feels like a 2D Souls game."

Salt and Sanctuary

VaatiVidya has published the first full-length gameplay video of Salt & Sanctuary, Ska Studios’ August-announced PlayStation 4 and PS Vita game.

According to the VaatiVidya preview, the game “legitimately feels like a 2D Souls game.”

“There’s block, parry, roll, light attack, strong attack, jump, guard breaks, a dedicated healing potion, and a stamina bar that works identically to those in the Souls games,” the video reports. “But the familiarity goes further than just controls. It’s in so many elements that of game’s design, and there’s so many moments in the game where things just click.”

Watch the full video below. The game is due out later this year.
