It's like those magical girl animes the kids like but with way more hammers!

 
Ordinary schoolgirl Remi - it's always an ordinary schoolgirl - has awoken Lore, a powerful magic book. They are both transported to the magical world of Ragnoah, a land that is positively overrun by gigantic mechanical monsters. They must work together to find their way home, hoping against hope that they can trust one another to get the job done.

Players can make use of over 200 different weapons to execute devastating melee and magical attacks as they battle their enemies. Levels are procedurally generated and can be played as a single-player experience or in co-op with a friend.

RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore will release for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch in Winter 2018 for $39.99 or your regional equivalent. Physical versions will be available for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch at the same price point including some bonus goodies like a full-color instruction booklet and a collectible item to be revealed at a later date.
