I’ve been pretty excited for Young Souls since first learning about it in 2018, I’ve been following progress since then of The Arcade Crew and 1P2P, the developers working on this beat ’em up RPG. We knew the game was set to launch on Stadia first with console versions to follow later this Fall and today the game shadow dropped on Google’s cloud platform.
Young Souls combines the beat’em up genre with RPG elements and offers a gorgeous art direction to boot. Playing as orphaned siblings Jenn and Tristan, the twins navigate the world together, exploring to find an adoptive father that is missing. Together you’ll venture into the goblin realm to find the man who raised you and you’ll need to make sure you have the right gear and weapons to stay safe and fight an assortment of enemies and bosses.
Exploring the cellars of their adoptive father’s home one day, the twins find a portal to another realm where goblins reign and so begin their journey to find the man who cared for them while learning who they are at the same time. You’ll jump back and forth between the two worlds.
In the meantime, you can lift weights at Happy Fit to gain strength and improve dexterity and agility or buy accessories at the Solid Sneaker and Teen Spirit to bolster your equipment.
Young Souls has four biomes to explore, hundreds of weapons, armour sets and accessories, and lots of enemies to engage with over 20 bosses.
If you’re ready to try the game out, Young Souls is out today on Google Stadia and will launch this fall for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
