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!“

While the Ambassador program is clearly making a return. Hence allowing players to get into gameplay early with some exclusive content.
But we were seriously hoping to see a sneak peak of the new game. Yet there seems to be possible slip in the video, a mention of “SteamWorld Tower Defense” (at 5:20). Could it be??

SteamWorld Heist (Linux, Mac, Windows PC), you command a steam-driven pirate crew in a series of epic tactical shootouts. It’s turn-based strategy with a twist: You manually aim the guns of your robots, allowing for insane skill shots and bullet-bouncing action!

SteamWorld Dig (Linux, Mac, Windows PC) is a platform mining adventure with strong Metroidvanian influences. Take the role of Rusty, a lone mining steambot, as he arrives at an old mining town in great need. Dig your way through the old earth, gaining riches while uncovering the ancient threat that lurks below…

Also, Image and Form have also discounted both Steamworld Heist and Dig in the Steam Winter Sale.
