The Mummy Demastered Teaser Trailer
Wayforward, the developers of the Shantae series, will be bringing another game to consoles (and STEAM) soon! The Mummy Demastered has its first trailer! Check out the video, some information about the game, and my impressions below.
Here is some more information about the game (via youtube):
“A powerful ancient evil has arisen, and the war to save humanity has begun! The Mummy Demastered throws you into a 16-bit-inspired battle against the undead in a 2D, nonlinear, action-packed adventure. As an elite agent in the monster-hunting Prodigium organization, you must use a variety of weapons, upgrades, and mysterious artifacts to defend mankind against the supernatural hordes of Princess Ahmanet. Your Prodigium unit is already on the scene, but HQ lost contact with them hours ago. Only by exploring tombs, forests, abandoned tunnels, and the cursed streets of London will you discover the fate of your allies. But beware – Ahmanet commands legions of undead, insects, plague-ridden vermin, and worse! If you’re not careful, you’ll be the next soul in her army.
– Stunning retro-inspired graphics and atmospheric chiptune soundtrack
– Shoot-’em-up action meets exploration-based adventuring
– Fight for survival against swarms of horrifying enemies and bosses
– Obliterate monsters with an arsenal of weapons including grenades, a flamethrower and more
– Uncover and collect 50 hidden relics ”
The Mummy Demastered looks like a cross between Contra and a Metroidvania type of game. I think it looks really cool. I’m excited that the game is coming to Nintendo Switch. I think it would play great in handheld mode.
The main reason I have confidence that this game is going to be good is Wayforward. They’ve done a great job with a lot of the previous games they’ve worked on. The company really excels at these type of games too. The Shantae series is excellent!
What do you think of the game?
The Mummy Demastered will be coming soon to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and STEAM.
