Coming straight from the development team of Thunder Lotus, we see a brand new, classic Metroidvania styled experience arrive on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch – Sundered: Eldritch Edition.
Available right now for owners of the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch to enjoy, Sundered: Eldritch Edition is the definitive version of the chaotic hand-drawn action adventure that had previously released on PC and PS4.
In Sundered you will be tasked with resisting or embracing ancient eldritch powers, as you confront hordes of terrifying enemies in an ever-changing world inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Sundered promises to be a challenging and unique take on a classic genre from the creators of Jotun – just now with the added bonus of 4-player local co-op!
After previously earning high praise for its rather unique take on the classic metroidvania genre when it first released back in 2017, this Eldritch Edition enhances the game in a number of ways – most notably that of bringing local co-op to the party, a special quest in new areas and a battle against the new Magnate of the Gong boss. Don’t worry if you’re playing Sundered on PC or PS4 though, as a free update is also hitting that game to bring things into line with the Eldritch Edition.
“We really wanted to bring something special to the table for the launch on the new consoles,” said Will Dubé, President of Thunder Lotus Games in a prepared statement. “Plus, we’d been wanting to bring multiplayer to our games for a long time. It’s cool to see how well the local co-op integrates into the core Sundered experience in Eldritch Edition. It’s a great opportunity for existing players to dive back into the game as well!”A
In order to grab Sundered: Eldritch Edition, then you should be found making your way over to the Xbox Store or Nintendo eShop and splashing the £15.49 required. If on the other hand you’re looking for a review, then keep your eyes peeled for ours in the days ahead.
