It isn’t immediately obvious what sort of animal Fin is, but with those big-ears I’d hasten a guess at a fennec fox. This would make him the latest fox-based video game character after Lucky from New Super Lucky’s Tale, Kingsley, Fox McCloud and many more. After his arrival on Nintendo Switch in 2019, today sees the arrival of Fin and the Ancient Mystery on Xbox.
What that Ancient Mystery is could be anyone’s guess, and with a name that vague, it will take all our Fin’s abilities to find out. What looks at first to be a 2D platformer is indeed much trickier than that. Fin will have to slash away at enemies with his sword and unleash a suite of magic spells when the sword is not enough in this metroidvania inspired adventure.
Throughout ten different worlds he will need to run, jump and more to save the world. Bosses will get in his way and he will need to find their weak spot to best them. He will travel through frost covered worlds, sand covered worlds, deep into dungeons and ruins, and even a world beyond time itself.
He will need to use everything he’s got in between those big-ears of his as he solves puzzles, searches for secret rooms and avoids the myriad of traps in front of him.
