Developer Bombservice announced its follow-up to the lesser known but beloved Momodora series today with a trailer and a 2019 release date.
Minoria is the latest and most ambitious game from Bombservice, and a spiritual sequel to the Momodora series, from the same studio.
Fans of Momodora will find familiar aspects in the design and gameplay elements, as they master the ins-and-outs of parries, dodges, and a variety of different spells.
The presentation has evolved to an HD format, with aesthetics mixing 2D hand-painted backgrounds and cel-shaded characters.
While Minoria is not a direct sequel, it seems to have a lot in common with the series’ latest entry, the criminally underrated Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight. In addition to the obvious gameplay similarities, the story summary on the publishers’ website reveals a focus on powerful religious institutions and dangerous heretics that will be familiar to Momodora fans. If Bombservice’s reputation and the trailer are anything to go by, Minoria will likely also feature fast, difficult combat and brutal bosses.
Minoria is set for a 2019 release on PC and Nintendo Switch.
