Eldest Souls releases in the second quarter of 2021 — roughly sometime between April and June — and Fallen Flag Studios announced it’s coming to current and previous-gen systems.
Eldest Souls follows a hero’s journey to defeat the vengeful Old Gods after they stole the essence of life and doomed the world to death.
Fallen Flag originally announced the boss rush pixel art game for Switch and PC in 2019, and early previews were promising. The game’s signature pixel art style earned the Retro Roots award from Pixel Awards Europe 2020.
We praised Eldest Souls‘ optional challenges, brutal combat, and gorgeous art when it first debuted at E3 in 2019, and it’s evolved a fair bit since then both in visuals and gameplay. Where that early preview build only had skills in three categories, the launch version features multiple powers and abilities players can combine for a unique build in every playthrough.
Francesco Barsotti, Fallen Flag’s Co-Founder and Programmer, said:
Over the last year, we’ve been hard at work making Eldest Souls the best it can be.
The response to the trailers and the demo during the Steam Game Festival lit a fire under us and we’re further excited by the chance to bring this experience to even more players. We can’t wait to see Nintendo, PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players challenge the Old Gods.
While there’s no solid Eldest Souls release date just yet, PC users can wishlist it on Steam.
