Publisher Coatsink and developer Over The Moon will release action adventure game The Last Hero of Nostalgaia for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Switch alongside the downloadable content “The Rise of Evil” on June 20, the companies announced. The game will be priced at $24.99 / £19.99 / €24.99, while the downloadable content will cost $7.99 / £6.69 / €7.99.
Here is an overview of the base game and downloadable content, via Coatsink:
The Last Hero of Nostalgaia is set in a world that celebrates videogame nostalgia, blending the complex systems and dark aesthetics of its Souls-like inspirations with a reference-packed comedy tale told by a cynical narrator never short of a sharp putdown. The game delivers tough but fair combat, challenging bosses for you to overcome, engaging narrative mechanics rich in lore and a shockingly-rich character creator (kind of). The Last Hero of Nostalgaia draws on the best of the games that inspired it while delivering a humorous and innovative twist on the genre, along with a boatload of nudge and wink references that will delight videogame fans.
The Last Hero of Nostalgaia offers players the chance to enjoy tackling the game’s tough battles and laugh at its funny moments with friends thanks to an online co-op mode. Whether alone or alongside a friend, it’s time to jump into the world of videogames and find what’s causing the blight of pixelation causing it to collapse backwards in time. Nostalgaia is fading away to nothing: even the memories of our proud, cherished video games are being lost. Now, with our fidelity all but gone, at the very brink of extinction, hope emerges to fight back.
Downloadable Content “The Rise of Evil”
The downloadable content “The Rise of Evil” adds two new areas to the game: Easymaker’s Retreat and The Builder’s Sanctuary. Your new quest will also require you to defeat three new bosses that will put the skills and abilities you’ve acquired through the main game to the ultimate test.
