The highly anime-styled Metroidvania game Frontier Hunter - Erza's Wheel of Fortune lands this week for Early Access.
Created by IceSitruuna, the Finland based developer has pulled out all the stops to create a lavish, anime-styled alternate world populated by monsters that you must hunt down, the rewards for which are new abilities that will enhance and develop your character in order to power up and hunt even more powerful enemies.
The game is set over a myriad of level types, from forests, the dark abyss, floating islands and massive cities, exploring complex maps, uncovering hidden items and generally having a classic Metroidvania adventure.
The game's announcement was well received back in 2021, with the game appearing in a substantial number of Steam wish lists. The game is now ready for Early Access on the platform on December 15th, so you can try it for yourself. The game will receive a proper release next year.
We've been sent a preview code and we're happy to say that it runs flawlessly on Steam Deck so far, with all controls properly mapped to Deck buttons in-game.
