Deck 13 announced that the Matthias Linda-developed adventure RPG, Chained Echoes, will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and GOG on December 8, 2022.
Further, Xbox Game Pass on PC owners can enjoy the game through the Cloud on launch day. A physical version of the title on PS4, Switch, and PC is in production from First Press Games but will come in Summer 2023.
Chained Echoes has been in development for over seven years. The game borrows many elements from past SNES RPGs with its 16-bit presentation. Players follow a group of heroes tasked with exploring the continent of Valandis to bring an end to the war between its three kingdoms. Players will meet other characters throughout the adventure to add to the party and uncover a 40 – 50 hours story.
The developer shares that the game features no random encounters and all enemies can be seen running around. The battle system is turn-based, with characters earning experience through battle. Other systems include looting, stealing, crafting, and a “complex skill and equipment system.” During gameplay, players will also be able to craft and customize their own airship to travel around the continent. Aside from that, though, there’s also a mech that can be used to get around environments.
