Full release planned for 2022 on PC and Switch.
Of all the titles we expected from Konami, a sequel to Getsu Fūma Den from 1987 was the least expected. GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon will be coming to Steam Early Access on May 13th with the full version launching in 2022 for PC and Switch. Check out the game’s sharp ukiyo-e aesthetic below in the reveal trailer.
As a rogue-lite hack and slash, GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon sees a guardian utilizing powers of the Getsu clan venturing into Hell to battle yokai forces. Pacing and timing is part of the combat with weapons like spears, katanas and battle umbrellas available along with special moves. If you die, then Hell’s layout changes, offering new challenges.
Players can customize their weapons, unlocking new abilities and enhancements to make future runs easier. You can also collect souls during each run for selecting enhancements “dynamically and strategically.” Along with the gameplay trailer, Konami also released two uncut gameplay videos with one showcasing a second playable character.
