reina and jericho cover-art

You’ve probably heard of Reina & Jericho, mainly as the touching metroidvania from Reclamation Games was previously announced for both Nintendo Switch and PC through Steam. Well, there’s good news for those folk who prefer the Xbox and PlayStation lifestyle, as it’s now confirmed for launch on Xbox Series X|S and PS5.

Reina & Jericho will launch on Xbox Series X|S, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC in Q3 2021 as gamers get the opportunity to follow a woman’s time-bending journey to save the love of her life, all as she looks to fight for freedom. It will focus on a world which has just seen a corrupt and tyrannical regime collapse, as Reina witnesses the abduction of her lover, Jericho, by the forces of her former oppressors. In a desperate attempt to rescue Jericho, Reina follows them into a mysterious subterranean facility teeming with deadly devices and supernatural artifacts that are the key to regaining power.

It is here where Reina finds herself trapped in the underground fortress, but it’s also here as she discovers that she is in possession of a necklace imbued with the power to allow her to revisit the recent past and undo her mistakes. Wielding this intense power, she will be able to manipulate cause and effect, deciding how far she’s willing to go in order to save herself, rescue Jericho, and exact her revenge on those that brought them here.

Reina & Jericho isn’t just about the power of a necklace though and throughout this adventure you’ll be looking to collect artifacts which will help you to slice through robot enemies and armed guards while gathering the power-ups left behind to enhance Reina’s skills. With ornate fountains wielding healing waters to restore her health, it should be simple enough to double back to the past to right any wrongs and survive the many traps laid out against her by the powerful henchmen controlling the failing state.

This is an adventure that promises to deliver multiple possible endings across three game types. You see, alongside the Story mode and Speedrun mode, Randomizer will ensure that no detail is ever the same in Reina’s mission as she sets out to rescue the love of her life. It gets better still though, with the action set to a moving soundtrack featuring emotive live recordings, as Reina and Jericho presents stylized environments, intense gameplay, and a powerful story about love, regret and the consequences of our choices.

“With Reina & Jericho, we set out to create a game where the narrative impacts players just as much as the mechanics and action,” said Dave Wightman, Founder and CEO, Reclamation Games. “We’ve combined an action-packed platformer with a powerful story to teach us lessons about love, life, and what it takes to do the right thing in the face of pain and adversity. It’s a tale we can’t wait to share with everyone on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S later this year.”

You’ll find Reina & Jericho becoming available on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and Steam for PC, kicking in with a price point of $19.99 in Q3 2021. Until that time though, it’ll be well worth your time to take in the trailer.
