If you’ve always fancied yourself as a wannabe wizard, you may wish to enroll in the magical school that’s opening its doors in Ikenfell. It’s a new turn-based RPG and it’s available on Xbox One via Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Centred on a group of rather troublesome youths who attend a school specialising in magic, Ikenfell prepares to deliver a heartwarming tale that’s going to be full of twists. There’s a focus on friendship, trust, love, and loss throughout the adventure as well. It’ll see you traverse a vast array of magical and mysterious locations, including the alchemy labs, twilight yard, the dorms, and a dozen or so others.
In regards to the gameplay though, Ikenfell is a tactical, turn-based RPG in which the students will battle tons of different enemies, such as spirits, monsters and even teachers. Each of the six students possesses unique powers and strengths, but only three of the party can fight at once. Forget about MP (Mana Points) here because instead you must use timing mechanics to power your spells, blast enemies and block attacks.
Ultimately, the idea is to explore the twisted halls of the magic school, fight challenging monsters and bosses, while also trying to find tons of hidden treasure, and uncover dark secrets that were never meant to be found. So if that sounds like something you would be interested in, head on over to the Xbox Store and pay £16.74 – discounted by 10% to £15.06 for a week post-launch – or download Ikenfell at no extra cost if you’re an Xbox Game Pass subscriber. It’s available from the digital stores of the other aforementioned platforms too.
