Unepic, the 2011 Metroidvania action RPG, is going to be released for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on March 29. Unepic combines 8-bit graphics and platforming from the 1980s streamlined to include more contemporary features.
The protagonist, Daniel, is trying to enjoy some table top role playing with some friends until he is mysteriously transported into a castle in a fantasy world. Possessed by a wise cracking shadow that can only be set free when Daniel dies, the two banter back and forth throughout the adventure while the shadow provides intentionally bad advice to expedite Daniel’s untimely demise.
The humorous take on adventure games is very enjoyable, so this new platform is a great opportunity for those who missed out when it was new to experience it, or those who have played it before to revisit it, especially if you enjoy collecting PSN trophies.
