New Mobile Strategy Game by Masayoshi Kikuchi and Koji Igarashi, Revolve8 Launches Today!
POSTED BY Raphael Leynes ON February 6, 2019
Legendary videogame pioneers, Masayoshi Kikuchi (Yakuza, Jet Set Radio) and Koji Igarashi (Castlevania, Bloodstained: Ritual of Night) have banded together along with an all-star team of creators to make the latest and most stylish addition to the mobile strategy game genre, Revolve8!
The game features top-down, isometric, real-time strategy action similar to the gameplay popularized by Clash Royale and Stormbound. The goal is to break through your opposition’s defenses and destroy their main tower. To do that, players will have to craft a carefully curated deck of eight cards composed of different spells and hero characters that you summon to the field in real-time to wage war on your opponent.
The gameplay might be quite familiar but where the game really stands out is in its incredible character designs. The colorful cast of characters that you collect and encounter throughout the game are all fantasy characters from fairy tales and folklore all filtered and reimagined by the unique mind of Koji Igarashi. The result is an eclectic collection of our favorite childhood characters but with weird, quirky but charming twists. Red Riding Hood as a social media maven, The Emperor as a rowdy buff man flaunting his “Rock Hard Birthday Suit” and Cinderella as a motorcycle riding badass are just some of the characters you can expect to find in Revovle8. We can’t wait to dive in and unlock other different characters for our deck!
The best news from the launch today is that Revolve8 will have a total of five different languages: English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Spanish and French so that players in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Turkey, South Africa, and a total of nearly 100 other countries and regions will be able to play the game without fear of translation issues!
