Since retro games became, well, retro, many studios making games today have attempted to emulate the music, art, style, and feel of classics like Castlevania, Super Metroid, and others. Nostalgia for games like that helps them a lot in many cases, but that only gets you so far – at the end of the day, you do actually need to create a great game when attempting to dig back into the treasure chest that is 8-bit and 16-bit action-adventure gameplay. I’m happy to report that Berzerk Studio’s Infernax, which hits PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on February 14, has been a blast so far.
While I’ve not completed the game just yet, there’s plenty within that I want to keep a secret for yourself to view in the full game. However, if you’ve not heard of Infernax or are looking for more information about it, we have you covered with the first 15 minutes of the game (and if you’re anything like me, these first 15 minutes will sell you on the game quite well).
In this New Gameplay Today, your hosts Wesley LeBlanc, Ben Reeves, and Marcus Stewart talk and walk you through the first 15 minutes of Infernax. Is it hitting the highs of the games it’s inspired by? Find out in this special preview video. Thanks for watching and be sure to let us know what you think of Infernax.
