Nomina Games revealed their retro RPG The Revenant Prince will release on PC later this summer.
The announcement comes with a new gameplay trailer that gives players a preview of the characters and the battle system. It appears that the game is created in some RPG Maker toolset, but features a variety of different gameplay elements inspired by classic Japanese RPGs.
“The Revenant Prince is both an homage to and an expansion of 90’s RPGs like Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger, and Secret of Mana, with their seemingly evocative worlds, colossal casts, and simple, elegant graphics that let players imagine the expansive world just out of view,” said Nomina Games founder and director Darrel Wijaya. “We wanted to capture this feeling of endless possibility, where you play a major, active role in how the story plays out. The Revenant Prince is a culmination of everything that made us fall in love with RPGs in the first place.”
The Revenant Prince features a single-play campaign where players will make choices during key moments of the narrative. During the game, players will meet strange creatures and characters who they can fight or befriend. There are also options to de-escalate feuds or just take out everything in sight.
Players assume the role of Trow, a prince who awakens after a near-death experience. He hears a voice that sends him on a quest to fulfill his destiny. The player will gain the ability to play god and toy with the lives of the other characters. Time-based battles are also featured with a range of weapons and magic options.
