JackQuest: Tale of the Sword, a fast-paced fantasy action platformer from publisher Blowfish Studios, who gave us the beautifully made Storm Boy, and developer NX Games, cleaves its way onto PlayStation 4 and Switch this month.
You need to navigate a cavernous, interconnected labyrinth wielding a giant talking sword named Kuro, and save Jack’s beloved Nara from Korg, a villainous orc. JackQuest is teeming with environmental puzzles, power-ups, special abilities, and weapons. There are also some colossal bosses that will need to be felled too. The game doesn’t waste any time with its quick combat and steady progression. Completionists will want to explore every nook and cranny of the world to find the well-placed secrets and speed runners will be encouraged to revisit JackQuest’s dungeons to achieve faster times.
You can check out the latest trailer for it below.
If you’re up for an adventure and into slaying vile creatures then the journey starts on January 24th. The game releases on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam for £8.99/$9.99.
