From the Developers of Blazing Chrome, ‘Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider’ is Love Letter to Retro Action; New Trailer Highlights Gameplay and Release Date

The Arcade Crew announced they will publish the JoyMasher-developed retro action game Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on January 12, 2023.

Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider is an action platformer that features 16-bit graphics. Players assume the role of a cyborg ninja named Moonrider on a quest for revenge.

“From using traditional audio recording techniques from the 90’s to limited color palettes that’d feel right at home on a Sega Genesis, we wanted every aspect of Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider to faithfully pay homage to the formative era of games which ultimately inspired us to create our own,”

said Danilo Dias, co-founder of JoyMasher and art director on Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider. “The classic simplicity of action platformers continues to influence game design to this day, and Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider is a tribute to where some of the best retro experiences originate from as well and our interpretation of how they can still evolve going forward.”

Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider features some of the more notable action game elements to keep the gameplay fast and challenging. Players can equip modifier chips to the character that allow some level of customization during fights.
