Exclusive: Twin-Stick Roguelite Platformer ‘Revita’ Blasts Onto Switch This April
Revita has been in Early Access for just over a year. And it certainly created a bit of a buzz among roguelike fans. Developed by one man, Benatar, this azure-hued dual-stick shooter with a “heart-sacrifice tale”. Will leave Early Access and arrive on Switch on April 21st! What’s more, it will only cost you $16.99 / €16.99 / £13.49. Published by Dear Villagers (responsible for bringing Edge of Eternity and The Forgotten City to console). You control an amnesiac boy who must climb the imposing Clock Tower. Each room in the game, like the roguelike level, is procedurally generated. Which means that no two passages will be the same.
Challenging boss fights and upgrades galore await the nameless kid. As he works overtime trying to climb the tower over and over again. Here are just a few of the official advertisements you can find in Revita that will help speed up the time:
– Exchange life for strength: Trade health for strength in fast-paced glass cannon gameplay.
– Unique rides: Fight in an endless variety of combat encounters in procedurally generated rooms.
– Endless character builds: Shooting with two joysticks, dashing and sliding along the walls is just the beginning – find power-ups and items in each run.
– Customize your game: A wide range of options allows you to customize Revita to suit your playstyle – slow down time, set an outline color for enemies to make them easier to track, or select the level of aim assist that suits you
– Arm yourself with several types of weapons: Use a variety of weapons! Arm yourself with a laser gun, charge gun, machine gun, shotgun or rocket launcher.
– Mysterious world: Explore an underground subway line infested with monsters and filled with colorful characters to help you on your journey.
– Recover Lost Memories: A nameless child with no memories wakes up in the mysterious Clock Tower, connected to the subway system, with a vague sense of purpose, hoping to find answers above.
– HATS!: Lots and lots of hats. All hats, in fact – for all heads and all styles!
Well, the last point has already sold us. Who needs an entire costume when you can put together and wear several different headgear? So try not to get offended and enjoy your time decorating your character with awesome headwear (and climbing that tower). It’s also worth noting that Revita will be playable in multiple languages - English, French, German, Spanish, Latin American Spanish, and Simplified Chinese. Here are some more screens if you don’t want to watch the trailer above for any reason:
Benatar announces in an official PR about the full release of the game next month:
“Revita has been a passion project of mine for over five years as it combines jittery arcade combat with roguelike mechanics and risky decision making as you decide what to and what not to trade your health for. We’ve received a lot of great feedback from players on Steam Early Access, and we think fans and newcomers alike will be thrilled with all the content we’ve crammed into the full game. Surprises will be at every turn!
