THQ Nordic and Airship Syndicate have released the opening animation for Battle Chasers: Nightwar. It is animated by Powerhouse Animation, the same studio behind Netflix’s recently launched Castlevania animated TV series.
Watch the Battle Chasers: Nightwar Opening Animation:
fans of the Battle Chasers franchise will witness the action-packed debut of an all-new hero: Alumon the Devil Hunter. Once a member of a sacred order of monster hunters, Alumon was banished from the order and now operates alone as bounty hunter, taking contracts and doing odd jobs for money, from exorcisms and assassinations if the job requires it (and sometimes even if it doesn’t).
Though Alumon possesses the traditional magic and light-based abilities of the Battle Priests of his order, he has taken his study of the dark arts further than most. Many of his spells and abilities call upon dark magic, often bringing harm to himself or others. Meddling with these dark powers has physically changed Alumon, so he is easily recognized by his frost white hair and serpent-like eyes. For that reason, Alumon usually wears a mask.
The new Battle Chasers: Nightwar video will also serve as the animated introduction for the game and was inspired by title sequences of TV classic series from the 1980s, like Thundercats, Silverhawks and Defenders of the Earth. “Battle Chasers, ho!“
The video reveals that the Switch version of Battle Chasers: Nightwar has been delayed to “slightly later” than its PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC counterparts, which will launch on October 3.
