Sword and Fairy: Together Forever

Independent developer and publisher Eastasiasoft Limited today released a new exploration trailer for the Chinese mythology-based action RPG Sword and Fairy: Together Forever, a brand new standalone entry in the storied franchise. The new trailer showcases the lush environments that players can explore. To celebrate the release of the exploration trailer, eastasiasoft has revealed that Sword and Fairy: Together Forever will release on PS5™ and PS4™ in North America, Europe and Australia on August 4th.

A vast and fantastical world awaits players in Sword and Fairy: Together Forever. From flower-covered vistas with waterfalls and rainbows to the hardened majesty of the demon realm, from comforting countryside to the wide and volatile sea beyond the coast, these wondrous landscapes deserve to be explored to their fullest extent. Players will be able to discover unexpected secrets and use stealth in key locations for the first time in the series’ history! While danger and war may loom over the lands, their storied history and enduring beauty cannot be denied.

With its beginnings in 1995, the Sword and Fairy RPG series has captured the hearts and imagination of Chinese-speaking players for decades. Now, in 2022, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever advances mechanics and graphics presentation into the next generation. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Sword and Fairy: Together Forever features intense real-time combat and vast detailed environments to explore, complemented by depth and engaging storytelling that have defined the franchise since its inception. This is a standalone RPG epic that can be enjoyed equally by long-time fans or newcomers without prior knowledge of the series, one that Eastasiasoft Limited is exceptionally proud to bring to new audiences worldwide.

Sword and Fairy: Together Forever was originally developed by Softstar Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd. Eastasiasoft Limited will publish digitally in the west. This new console version of the game will feature four exclusive outfits and a weapon appearance not available in the original PC release. US & EU physical editions for PS5™ and PS4™ are also in the works with more details to be announced soon.

NecroBoy: Path to Evilship Trailer

NecroBoy is a puzzle-adventure game from French indie developer Chillin’ Wolf, in which you can revive souls into the form of minions, the NecroMinions (because everything starting with Necro is cooler), that will follow our hero, NecroBoy. 

Use your minions to solve various puzzles by giving them orders, helping you to progress further into the crypt of NecroMan, an infamous necromancer that tyrannized the kingdom a century ago. What a role model!

Although the gameplay is made to be relaxed (we’re Chillin’ Wolf, remember?). The journey through the dungeons will make the players scratch their heads over puzzles as the difficulty increases! 

But the main focus of this game is the story. A story of this megalomaniac, theatrical, lonely kid who wants to take the path of evil. Why would he choose such a goal? What does he really want? That’s what you’ll learn as you follow the progress of NecroBoy into the crypt – and his progress as a person, with a tone often comedic, but… sometimes darker. NecroBoy’s character design was originally inspired by Ed from the 90’s game Tonic Trouble! It was one of my favorite games when I was a kid, so I wanted NecroBoy to be a fun and endearing protagonist like Ed was.

A demo for NecroBoy: Path to Evilship will be available soon, so please keep your eyes open! 

“I hope people will fall in love with NecroBoy, like I did while creating this little guy” from Yool the developer and owner of Chillin’ Wolf.
