Whilst medieval combat titles have typically been on the slower end of things – think Chivalry 2 and Mordhau, Eastasiasoft are attempting to re-invent the wooden wheel with the release of TORINTO; a fast-paced run and gun title that will be sure to have your blood pumping.
Releasing on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch, more than three years after its initial release on PC, TORINTO places you in the metal boots of a brave soldier of Torinto. This kingdom has been attacked by the sinister wizard Malzer, and it just so happens that both you and his demonic minions have a penchant for chucking weapons all over the place.
Yes, in lieu of the usual bullets filling up the screen, this 2D title will see you launching swords and dodging axes as you plough through a variety of enemies, all the while avoiding the spike traps and the like that have been set out for you.
All of this side-scrolling action can be enjoyed in single player, or with a local co-op partner; what better way to spend some quality time with a friend, than by traversing the lush forests and storming the towering castles of TORINTO?
Key features of TORINTO include:
- Experience a medieval fantasy twist on the classic run ‘n’ gun genre!
- Traverse side-scrolling stages with light platforming and frantic combat.
- Run, jump and throw blades as enemies close in from both sides!
- Adventure solo or team up with a friend in local co-op.
- Enjoy detailed pixel art and fluid animations!
If you fancy running and gunning your way through TORINTO, then the way to do so is to pick up a copy on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Switch or PC. For Xbox users, the game is available to purchase from the Xbox Store for £4.19.
Embark on a run ‘n’ gun journey set in a besieged medieval kingdom! When a powerful and sinister wizard named Malzer steals the hearts of the Torinto kingdom’s people, hope remains in the hands of those few heroes whose bonds are strong enough to protect them from the dark sorcery. Together they must turn the tide, defeat Malzer and return the kingdom’s inhabitants to their normal, peaceful existence, but the road ahead will be filled with peril! TORINTO is a run ‘n’ gun game with a medieval twist. Blades take the place of bullets as the heroes traverse side-scrolling stages, from forests and fields to castle walls, quelling the heartless fiends that now roam the land. Watch for enemy projectiles like axes and hurled boulders, leap across scaffolds and over spiky pitfalls, run headlong into danger and come out victorious. But you don’t have to do it alone! Like many genre classics, TORINTO can be enjoyed solo or with a friend in simultaneous cooperative play!
