Rhythm action game Klang 2 will launch for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series alongside its previously announced PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (Steam) versions in Q3 2021, publisher Ratalaika Games and developer Tinimations announced. It will support English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese on all platforms, as well as Russian, Korean, and Simplified Chinese Simplified on PC.
“Klang 2‘s gripping story will flesh out the details laid out in the original Klang while providing an improved rhythm-action experience everyone will love,” said Tinimations founder Tom-Ivar Arntzen in a press release. “I’ve listened to feedback from players and fine-tuned the gameplay, focusing on what players loved most and making it even better.”
Here is an overview of the game, via Ratalaika Games:
Strike enemies in rhythm with a mighty tuneblade. Sense the cadence of incoming attacks across 30 handcrafted stages with semi-procedural elements. Defeat powerful bosses who can alter the fabric of a universe formed around melody. Strive for perfection, taking on six sections of increasingly difficult songs at both normal speed and unlockable faster versions of each using mouse and keyboard, gamepad, drawing tablet or touch controls.
Crystal caves and ice cream deserts depicted in a techno-greek art style, with inspiration drawn from synthwave, musical symbolism and Mediterranean sculptures, set a beautiful backdrop for the pulsing journey. Follow the sound of 30 intense EDM tunes from lead audio collaborator bLiNd as well as Otographic Music, City Girl, James Landino, and other artists down a narrative path exploring Klang’s past, the darkest corners of his mind, and what comes next.
