A while ago, indie studio Team Ladybug announced a Record of Lodoss War game, and today we got an update about it.
The game is being developed to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the popular fantasy franchise, and it’s a Metroidvania-style action-platformer starring the beautiful elf Deedlit, the heroine of the original light novel and anime series.
The news is that it’s now scheduled to release in Early Access on Steam in fall 2019, with a full release scheduled for the spring of 2020.
The Early Access model already worked quite well for the developers at Team Ladybug, who recently released Touhou Luna Nights, which currently enjoys “overwhelmingly positive” user reviews on Steam. Considering that it’s pretty much the same genre, this definitely bodes well for the new Lodoss game.
Another point in common between the two games is the charming rendering in 2D pixel art, which is definitely appropriate to the genre.
While it’s fairly old, you can check out a trailer of Record of Lodoss War below, hoping to see more about it soon. We also have a couple of small screenshots to reinforce the idea that this is certainly a promising game which we should keep an eye on.
