What the XEL?!
Back at the very end of March, we learned that developer Tiny Roar and publisher Assemble Entertainment are bringing their time-traveling sci-fi adventure, XEL, to the Switch sometime this Summer. While we’re still waiting for a more specific release date, a new trailer has dropped today. Check out the game in action above.
A wondrous 3D sci-fi fantasy, XEL follows an amnesiac protagonist named Reid, who finds herself shipwrecked on a mystifying planet with no memory of who she is or where she’s from. During her quest, Reid will meet a cast of charming characters, engage in thrilling top-down dungeon-clearing combat, and of course, find and upgrade a whole arsenal of valuable items and tools — some of which may help her jump through space and time itself. As Reid delves deeper into the mysteries surrounding the world of XEL, she discovers an endless cycle of peril. Does she have the strength and courage to end the cycle for good, or will she too become trapped?
