Shattered - Tale of the Forgotten King, a soulslike open-world adventure RPG from developer Redlock Studio and publisher Forthright Entertainment, is available today for Nintendo Switch. Check out details on the game below and the latest trailer above.
A new world to discover: Explore the vast reaches of a gorgeously-rendered semi-open world ripe with opportunities to experiment and explore.
Monstrous enemies to defeat: Observe your foes, anticipating their every move and using their own attacks against them. Switch from close-combat sword fights to long-distance spell slinging as you seamlessly shift between 2.5 and 3D battles.
A tale 10 years in the making: The epic scale of the Shattered universe is the culmination of a decade of imagination and creativity conjured from the minds of Redlock Studio. Tale of the Forgotten King is but a first step into the world of Hypnos, with more games already planned.
A story all your own: Not all survivors of Hypnos are trustworthy. Though most will help you on your way, there are those who seek to use you for their own ends. The world will remember the choices you make during your adventure, and only those with focus and dedication will see through to the truth beyond.
Constant progression: Whether through combat or exploration, the Wanderer will evolve. With finite resources, will you raise your strength or discover another truth of Hypnos? Buy a new weapon, or increase your spellcasting? The choice is yours.
About Redlock Studio Though founded in 2016 in Lyon, France, the minds behind Redlock Studios have been crafting the Shattered universe since 2006. It was here that the first iterations of Hypnos and the Forgotten King were created for a series of tabletop RPG campaigns. Since its inception, the studio’s mission has been to expand upon this complex, intriguing lore and bring the world of the Forgotten King to life.
Project History Based on over a decade of collaborative worldbuilding through the team’s tabletop RPG campaigns, development on Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King began in 2015. The game was first announced as a Square-Enix Collective title on IGN Live at E3 2016 and the initial reaction proved to be overwhelmingly positive. This response was mirrored during a Kickstarter campaign wherein the game easily surpassed its initial goal, raising over €110,000.
