Publisher Dangen Entertainment has announced the games they will be showcasing during the 8th Bit Summit event running from September 2 to September 3.
The X Plus developed Smelter will be releasing for PlayStation 5 in North America and Europe later today.
Throughout this title, players control Eve, who embarks on a journey to find Adam and meets a mysterious being named “Smelter.” After forming a quick agreement and fusing with Smelter to gain immense power, Eve agrees to help expand his empire to help find Adam.
The game synergizes real-time strategy and 2D platforming stages in a rotation between strategy and action stages. Players control Smelter, who can fly, shoot and destroy enemies and obstacles while giving commands to his troops to expand territory, build structures and unleash attack units against enemy monsters in various regions. Once players progress through the game, players can control Eve, who plays similarly to a standard 2D platformer.
