Action-RPG Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom, from the Indie studio Enigami, sheds light on the depth of the game's gameplay and shows us more details and imagery of the unique universe in a brand new video that was released today. Shiness, which is set to release "in just a few weeks", brings together an idea 20 years in the making by the studio's Artistic Director, Samir Rebib. With a wide world to explore (and unite), Shiness gives players an all new adventure to embark on as they solve puzzles and combat enemies using traditional fighting game mechanics unique to each of the 5 characters in the cast of characters.
The overview video shows us some footage we've seen before, as well as some new footage and details that we haven't really seen in action yet. From flying cities and airships, to vast dungeons fraught with enemies to battle and bosses to defeat, we get a deeper glimpse at the experience we'll be able to expect from Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom.
It would seem that we've got an epic journey ahead of us, and this new video sheds light and expands on a lot of the systems and features that players are going to get to enjoy. In order to make your way through the game, there will be a need for you to solve puzzles on your journey, and by using the unique abilities and skills of each of your playable characters - you'll be able to complete these challenges as you seek to make your way through dungeons and collect the parchments to need to add and enhance the abilities of the characters. Outside of fighting, puzzle-solving, and parchment-finding, we were given some details on shops and quests too - which you'll be able to find across the world as you go from place to place. Each location you visit will have you discovering quests that the locals need your assistance with, and the local shops will sell goods for you to equip, as well as mounts to speed up your travels!
Shiness: The Lighting Kingdom is poised to give players an all new experience on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC - combining traditional action RPG gameplay with the systems of traditional fighting games as players embark on a quest to unite Mahera. There is no specified release date for the title, but the trailer and news release on the developer's site indicates that it will be "soon." If you'd like to pre-order the game for PC, you can pick it up for 15% off on Steam or at a discount for VIP members on Green Man Gaming's site (affiliate).
