Scheduled for April in Japan and during spring in the rest of the world, this sequel to the game released in 1992 is shown through a trailer and a series of images.
The few minutes devoted to Pocky & Rocky Reshrined highlight the title’s playable characters: Ame no Uzume, Ikazuchi and Gozen Hotaru – who will soon have English names – as well as the priestess Pocky (Sayo-chan) and the tanuki Rocky (Manuke), naturally.
This new opus will give players in bad shape the possibility of moving towards a much lower level of difficulty: Extra Easy mode. And, in addition to the Story mode, another (the Free mode) will allow you to approach the game in co-op.
Images, including illustrations that we owe to Yoshitoh Asari – the artist who has already officiated on the episode of 1992 –, have also been put online. Here they are:
Pocky & Rocky Reshrined will be released on April 21, 2022 in Japan and later in the spring in the rest of the world. It will appear on PS4 and Switch.
