Konami is back once more with Skelattack from developer Ukuza Inc., it’s available today and an informative launch trailer has been uploaded alongside the release.
The launch trailer, with its gravelly narrator and haunting soundtrack perfectly set the stage for the trailer before it allows itself to get a little goofy.
The trailer’s description explains Skelattack by saying:
Skelattack turns the platforming hero stereotype on its head by putting players in the shoes of Skully, a skeleton fighting to protect his home. As a member of the newly deceased and just getting the hang of being dead, Skully’s newfound home and friends are attacked by humans. Instead of seeking gold or other treasure, the humans kidnap Aftervale’s elder skeleton, Elzedon, and attempt to steal the magic that kindles the spirits of the dead – the Blue Flame. Together with Imber, Skully’s trusty bat friend, players will jump, slash, and flap their way through the Underworld in an attempt to stop the human threat, save the Elder, and protect the Blue Flame.
Skelattack is available for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC for $19.99.
