This peculiar two-dimensional action and platform video game that has been in development since the Nintendo Wii U generation -at the time was announced as a title for this system- have four playable characters that will be unlocked from the beginning of the game. Each of them will have a unique combat style: Lilac the Dragon Girl will be very fast, while Carol the Wildcat will be specialized in combat, Milla the Hound in exploration and Neera the Frost Knight will be “power type”. All the characters will be able to go through levels full of treasures and with over 100 NPCs to converse with.
