JackQuest: Tale of the Sword, the fast-paced fantasy action platformer from publisher Blowfish Studios and developer NX Games, will slay vile creatures and embark on its epic journey on January 24th for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam.
Undertake a rescue mission to save Jacks beloved Nara from the revolting orc Korg, who captured the fair maiden and dragged her away to his subterranean lair. Journey into the caves and discover Kuro, a spirit imprisoned inside an enchanted blade. The unlikely duo of Jack and Kuro adventure into an underground labyrinth to liberate Nara, defeat her crazed captor, and perhaps even break the curse over Kuro.
Set in a massive interconnected world, JackQuest: Tale of the Sword is teeming with environmental puzzles, invaluable power-ups, special abilities, and magnificent weapons to aide Jack in surviving Korgߣs hideout and the denizens therein. Alongside an army of minions standing in Jackߣs way are colossal bosses that will need to be felled before our heroes realize their goals.
JackQuest 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 speedrunners will be encouraged to revisit JackQuests dungeons to achieve faster times.
“This is one of those games that I pick up and then can’t stop playing because I always feel like I do something meaningful each time I play, said Ben Lee, CEO, Blowfish Studios. JackQuests mix of fast-paced action and exploration makes it hard to put down, and it’s been an honour to work with NX Games to bring this game to life.”
I have to say the game looks absolutely brilliant. Oozing that charm of the old school platformers like Shinobi that defined the genre. It’ll be interesting to see how JackQuest: Tale of the Sword goes down when it comes out in the coming weeks. And just to end on a tease here’s the trailer for the game in all its glory.
