The new trailer for Battle Chasers: Nightwar from Airship Syndicate is here. So thanks to the good folks at THQ Nordic, this is animated short by Powerhouse Animation. Hence the studio behind the hit Castlevania series on Netflix.
Since fans of the Battle Chasers franchise will witness the action-packed debut. An all-new hero: Alumon the Devil Hunter. While once a member of a sacred order of monster hunters. Alumon was banished from the order and now operates alone as bounty hunter. Taking contracts and doing odd jobs for money. Since these range from exorcisms and assassinations if the job requires it. Sometimes even if it doesn’t. Battle Chasers is also coming to Linux, Mac and Windows, see below for pre-orders.
Though Alumon possesses the traditional magic and light-based abilities. Hence the Battle Priests of his order. He has taken his study of the dark arts further than most. Many of his spells and abilities call upon dark magic. Often bringing harm to himself or others. Meddling with these dark powers has physically changed Alumon. So he is easily recognized by his frost white hair and serpent-like eyes. For that reason, Alumon usually wears a mask.
The new Battle Chasers: Nightwar video will also serve as the animated introduction. Since the game is inspired by title sequences of TV classic series from the 1980s. Such as Thundercats, Silverhawks and Defenders of the Earth. “Battle Chasers, ho!“
