Blade Assault is an upcoming 2D action platformer with rouge-lite elements. It is launching into Early Access this June, and the developers plan to work closely with the community during its time there. The Early Access version will include four chapters from the main game, four bosses for you to fight, three different types of weapons to use and over 50 different items to collect. Suffice to say, on launch you’ll already be getting a fair amount of content to play around with. The developers have also announced that they will be bringing Blade Assault to PlayStation platforms as well as the Nintendo Switch at a later date. Team Suneat’s CEO, Jun Hyeong Kim, spoke about their excitement to work alongside players to full realise Blade Assault’s potential.
“We’ve loved working on Blade Assault and with NEOWIZ to bring our vision to life […] We feel that we’ve created something truly special and that players will adore our uniquely mutated cyberpunk world and the fast-paced combat we’ve built. We can’t wait to work with our fans to make Blade Assault even better in the weeks and months ahead.”Jun Hyeong Kim ~ Team Suneat
