The world of 1999's Slave Zero returns
Over on their YouTube channel, game developer Poppy Works released a trailer for Slave Zero X, a “stylish 2.5D character action game set in the biopunk world of Slave Zero (1999)”, announcing it’d be coming to Switch, among other consoles. You can check it out below:
Here’s how Poppy Works describes their upcoming game:
KILLER COMBOS: Use swift swordplay, explosive ordinance, and stylish combos against an army of meat and metal.
DEATH FROM ABOVE: Air juggling, dashes, and frequent target switching allow for you to take down foes of any size while wall-jumping and platforming can help you outmaneuver your enemies.
FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE: Conquer mini-bosses, set pieces, and climactic 1-on-1 encounters that offer intense challenges against unforgettable villains.
STRENGTH IS NOTHING WITHOUT CONTROL: Use the Training Room to hone precise and powerful moves to string together devastating attack sequences. BATTLE TO THE BEAT: A 90s-inspired soundtrack features heavy Drum’n’Bass and funky industrial music that adds to the thrill of combat.
FEAST YOUR EYES: A unique visual aesthetic combines nostalgic 2D sprites with an advanced lighting system and stylized 3D environments.
There’s no news on when this game’s coming out, but fans of the original Slave Zero or character action games like Bayonetta and Devil May Cry may want to keep their eyes on this one.
