I have a bit of an addiction to rogue games of late, especially when they are also twin-stick shooters. Today’s game checks off both boxes, and it’s a cyberpunk game as well. That game is Leap of Fate. Developed by Canadian team Clever Plays and published by Eastasiasoft Limited, Leap of Fate is slated to release on PlayStation 4 in Asia this month.
As if that wasn’t enough of a draw, Leap of Fate is getting a pretty sweet Limited Edition including a manual, collector’s box and soundtrack. If you’re wondering about picking up a copy for yourself, you’re in luck as it’s also playable in English, Chinese and Japanese and supports French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Turkish and Hungarian. To see more details about Leap of Fate, just check out the full press release below.
Cyberpunk Rogue-Lite ‘Leap of Fate’ launching in Asia in September 2018
Available as digital & limited physical edition!
Hong Kong – September 6, 2018 – Eastasiasoft Limited, the independent developer and publisher of interactive entertainment, is excited to launch the narrative-driven, twin-stick cyberpunk rogue-lite Leap of Fate from Canadian developer Clever Plays for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system in Asia in September 2018. Leap of Fate will be available digitally and as physical limited edition at online retailer Play-Asia.com.
In this alternate version of New York city, where deranged cultists and dangerous cyborgs hide in dark alleys, you must choose among four characters with unique playstyles. Will you be Aeon, the shadow mage, who dashes through his enemies with dark magic? Or will you prefer Big Mo, the cyborg technomancer, who has a laser cannon for an arm? Or maybe Mukai, the spirit-channeler, who wields deadly entities as melee attacks? Or last, but not least, will you dare play Rasimov, the powerful blood mage who must sacrifice his own life essence to grow his magical abilities? The choice is yours. And with randomness sprinkled throughout every aspect of the game, from mission selection down to the skill tree itself, each player’s experience will be unique!
Leap of Fate will launch digitally on the PlayStation®Store in Asia on September 14th for US$9.99 / HK$78 / TW$312. The physical release of Leap of Fate will be available in limited quantities on September 13th from online retailer Play-Asia.com at US$34.99 including shipping.
