During the New Game Plus Expo today, NIS America and YummyYummyYummy, Inc. showed off a trailer for Fallen Legion: Revenants.
It appears to be a sidescrolling brawler with role-playing game elements, and in it you play as two characters: Lucien and Rowena.
The two characters seem to have very different gameplay styles. Lucien, a politician, will be focused on alchemy and stealth - an odd gameplay. As him, you make potions and items while also sneaking around. While playing as him, you can perform stealth moves, like pick-pocketing guards.
Meanwhile, Rowena, a revenant, commands a group of "legendary Exemplars" in real-time battles. Quite a change from Lucien!
So where will these two characters be either making potions or commanding Exemplars? Fallen Legion: Revenants will take place in a floating castle, called Welkin Castle. The world below has been covered in miasma and is filled with mutant beasts, corrupted by a plague. Things aren't great in the floating castle, either, as it's being controlled by a tyrant. In fact, this is why Lucien and Rowena team up - to overthrow this overlord.
There will be dialogue gameplay within the castle, and through you can influence the direction of the game's stories and its characters.
Fallen Legion: Revenants is coming early 2021 for the PS4 and Switch.

I'm a fan of stealth, but I don't get that a stealth guy can also be mixing potions. I mean, a mage-rogue kind of character sounds cool, but has it ever been done before? Come to think of it, though: a thief mixing his own invisibility potions...that has potential!
