Its release is just around the corner, but today indie studio Enigami have released a new trailer for Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom. Want to check out the characters involved?

Arriving on Xbox One, PS4 and PC from 18th April 2017, Shiness will let you explore, quest and battle your way across the magical world of Mahera. To do so though, you’ll need a party of willing warriors and the trailer released today focuses right in on them.

After a successful Kickstarter, Shiness will aim to fill any void that action-RPG fans are currently feeling with it featuring 5 playable characters, all with distinct playstyles and personalities:

  • Chado – This daring young Waki dreams of travelling far beyond his home town Kimpao – and this desire quickly lands him in big trouble!
  • Poky – A faithful friend to Chado, Poky has an incredible talent for engineering that makes up for his lack of courage.
  • Rosalya – Shy but loyal to the party, Rosalya has a powerful affinity with fire and is on the search for a mysterious truth.
  • Askel – A formidable young mercenary, the enigmatic Askel already has a far-reaching reputation in Mahera.
  • Kayenne – A strong, natural born leader, Kayenne remains calm in even the most difficult situations.

You’ll be able to directly control the above team members in hyper-dynamic combat, with each character bringing their own powerful magical abilities and devastating Hyper Combos! Though the battles you find will be 1v1 in classic fighting game tradition, that’s not to say the other party members can cast spells from the sidelines, or be swapped out through the tag team system.

With open, puzzle-filled environments giving each of the party members plenty of opportunities to shine, you’ll get to use plenty of potent abilities to overcome any obstacle that stands in your way.

Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom arrives for download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 18 April 2017 and we will of course give you the heads up as soon as it is available on the Xbox Games Store. You could of course pre-order it right now if that is your bag. It’s only £24.99!
