Love the Souls series but wish there was a bit more humor? Well you’re in luck! The Last Hero of Nostalgaia, from Coatsink and Over the Moon, is a satirical Souls-like featuring tough combat, an engaging narrative, and online co-op. The Last Hero of Nostalgaia is set to release on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on October 19th, 2022. You can check out a trailer above and read below for more details:
Gateshead, United Kingdom – September 21st, 2022 – Coatsink and Over The Moon are pleased to announce that their satirical Souls-like, The Last Hero of Nostalgaia, will be coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 & PC on October 19th.
Set in a world that celebrates videogame nostalgia, The Last Hero of Nostalgaia blends the complex systems and dark aesthetics of its Souls-like inspirations with a wicked tale told by a cynical narrator who jeers your attempts to save the world from a blight of pixelation at every turn. Delivering tough but fair combat, engaging narrative mechanics rich in lore and even an online co-op mode, The Last Hero of Nostalgaia draws on the best of the games that inspired it while delivering a humorous and innovative twist on the genre.
Nostalgaia is the world of videogames, and it’s collapsing backwards into a mysterious pixelation. Everything is fading away to nothing: even the memories of our proud, cherished video games are being lost. Now, with our fidelity all but gone, at the very brink of extinction, hope emerges to fight back.
As the most hideous pixelated hero to ever spawn in Nostalgaia, you must fight through an army of mindless inhabitants populating the degenerating world, all while absorbing the insults and putdowns of a narrator who despises your very existence.
“The Last Hero of Nostalgaia is very much a love-letter to the Souls series, but it’s still very much a game that I’ve tried to take in its own direction,” said Over the Moon CEO Jon Warner. “When it releases on Xbox and PC on October 19th, players are going to discover a game layered with interesting narrative elements and that plays with the balance between humour and darkness.”
