Last week’s E3 conference was full of many big announcements, yet one indie title managed to turn heads. That game was Tunic, a Microsoft exclusive developed by Andrew Shouldice (studio Dicey) and published by Finji.
Tunic is an action adventure game, where you play a tiny fox who seeks to uncover mysterious secrets all while exploring ancient ruins and fighting monsters in a big world. The game previously made its debut at last year’s E3 under the title Secret Legend.
You can check out the new gameplay trailer, along with the previously released teaser trailer if you missed it, here after the break.
From its classical gameplay style and isometric perspective, it’s easy to see the similarities and inspiration derived from the Legend of Zelda, but Tunic’s visual style pushes it into the future. Smooth yet sharp angled environments serve as muted backgrounds for the vibrant action staged above. All the while soft rhythmic music sets the tone. The trailer highlights combat as a mix of dodging and countering with your own well-timed slashes. Hopefully the game’s development maintains the cute nature and what looks like a fun dynamic highlighted in the most recent trailer.
Tunic is slated to release in 2019 on Xbox and Steam.
