Deck13 will publish Chained Echoes for indie developer Ark Heiral, who had their game funded last year through Kickstarter.
The 16-bit JRPG inspired game is set in a fantasy world where dragons are as common as piloted mechanical suits. You’ll control a group of heroes as they explore the land, encounter various charming characters, explore the lands and tackle enemies.
Chained Echoes is a story-driven game where a group of heroes travel around the vast continent of Valandis to bring an end to the war between its three kingdoms. In the course of their journey, they will travel through a wide array of diverse landscapes spanning from wind-tanned plateaus and exotic archipelagos to sunken cities and forgotten dungeons.
Some of they key features include an estimated 20-25 hour playtime, turn-based battles, enemies on screen, lots of items to loot and craft, complex skill and equipment system, and customizable airships.
Chained Echoes will launch next year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC.
