Normally I’m not one to cover free to play games, but I admit I’m intrigued when a company like Bandai Namco decides to adopt that model, especially for a Nintendo console. In case you hadn’t guessed already, the game in question is Lost Reavers for the Wii U, which officially hit the Open Beta on the eShop today. The game itself is a 4 player treasure hunt in ancient ruins crawling with monstrous threats. Using teamwork, you will need to find and extract treasure back to your base of operations. Especially interesting is that there will be 4 distinct characters to select from –
Sayuri, a sword-wielding modern day samurai; Dwayne, a heavy-weapon toting specimen of human artillery; Victoria, a svelte dual-wielding mistress of pistols, and a mysterious masked fourth character, who wields many weapons to cut down his foes.
As you play you will traverse various environments, such as Ancient Ruins and Medieval Castles, all the while leveling up, getting stronger equipment and evading dangerous traps. All in all, it should prove interesting to see if this experiment works on the Wii U console, and develops a new fan base on the eclectic console.
Stay tuned to oprainfall for more info about Bandai Namco’s Lost Reavers! And if you like what you see, the full version will be coming April 28th of this year.
