If you're fond of indie games, you might have been following Twin Souls by Lince Works. The game was approved on Steam Greenlight a while ago; the Spanish developer wanted to combine the essence of stealth classics like Tenchu with the modern approach of titles like Mark of the Ninja and Dishonored.
A press release just announced that the game has been renamed to Aragami and it will be released on PC and PlayStation 4 this Fall, with support from Sony Computer Entertainment.
Players will control Aragami, an undead assassin with supernatural abilities summoned back from the grave by Yamiko, a mysterious girl with ties to Aragami's past. Yamiko is being imprisoned by Kaiho - The army of Light - whose warriors guard the heavily fortified citadel of Kyûryu.
Using his newly acquired Shadow Powers, Aragami can manipulate darkness to become the ultimate ninja assassin. Players will need to use all their supernatural powers, wit and cunning to defeat their enemies.
Core Game Features:
Control the shadows – Use your Shadow Powers to become the ultimate stealth killer. Cast shadows on any surface and use your Shadow Leap to move around undetected. Dispose of enemy corpses using your Shadow Vanish, create shadow clones to distract your enemies or invoke black holes to swallow your targets in one fell swoop.
Become a master assassin – As you advance your powers will evolve to let you sneak past guards, teleport between shadows, create your own areas of darkness and strategically assassinate those who stand in your way.
Piece together your fate – The twin souls of Aragami and Yamiko share a common destiny. Fight your way through the heavily guarded city of Kyûryu to reach Yamiko and uncover the secrets that lie in your past.
