The press release says it all. 8-Bit Adventures 2 has “an earnest, engaging storyline; relatable, easy-to-love characters; strategic turn-based battles; deep party customisation; bizarre monsters; an unforgettable soundtrack; and a large, fantastical world, traversed by Airship, and filled with people full of personality – all brought to life by vibrant 8-Bit inspired visuals.”
You should absolutely keep an eye on 8-Bit Adventures 2 if you like the old Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy games – you know, those comfy, pixelated Japanese RPGs from back in the day. There’s an obvious passion for the classics here, developed by Australian indie studio Critical Games, and there’s tremendous potential on display in the teaser attached above.
It continues: “8-Bit Adventures 2is everything you love about NES, SNES and PS1-era JRPGs – with all of the charm, heart and soul, but none of the inconvenience.” What more could you want?
The game’s coming to both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, but we don’t have a release window just yet.
