Introducing Bookbound Brigade! The new 2D metroidvania game featuring historical figures

Intragames has announced that the new game Bookbound Brigade is coming to consoles and PC this year. The game will feature many historical figures and fictional heroes, venturing in Metroidvania style.

Here is the first detail from Intragames.

Bookbound Brigade is about beating the hell out of historical and literary characters you studied in school by leading a dream team of real and fictional heroes through a 2D sidescrolling platform-adventure. It will take the likes of Dracula, King Arthur, Queen Victoria, Nikola Tesla, Cassandra, Dorothy Gale, Sun Wukong the Monkey King and Robin Hood to assemble and avenge a world plunged into chaos following the theft of the ‘Book of Books’, a volume encompassing every single work of fiction and non-fiction ever written.

Game Features:

  • Explore, fight, backtrack, grow your skills and tackle challenging quests and puzzles, as in any Metroidvania game worthy of its name, but get ready for a twist…
  • There is no single hero in Bookbound Brigade: you play as a party of unique characters, each with their own traits and skills, who move in formation and fight as one.
  • All the characters, both playing and non-playing, are drawn from the pages of history and literature, so expect to meet some familiar and less familiar faces!
  • The distinctive hand-drawn visuals, inspired by book illustration from all time, stray far from the pixel art dominating the Metroidvania genre.

Bookbound Brigade will be digitally available for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC later this year. The game will also be playable at Gamescom 2019 during August 20th to August 22nd. For more information, visit a Facebook page here!
