Keen eyed gamers will notice that publisher DMM and developer Black Tower Games changed the Japanese name from Obsidian Legacy to Obcidian Legacy to suit the Western release, aside from that the RPG is still on track to release late this month for PC via Steam Early Access.
I’m not sure if there are other changes to the game, but from the looks of it the name change seems to be the only one so far. Folks who are curious about the name change and whether or not it’s legitimate will find the evidence in the official image below and on the game’s newly posted Steam Early Access page.
The RPG sees players battling waves of enemies in an attempt to become stronger and serving as an elite “Guardian” protector of the last remnants of humanity:
“Obcidian Legacy is an exhilarating hack-and-slash action RPG in which you hunt throngs of rampaging monsters one after the other. Embark on an adventure to unravel the secrets of a polluted world. Become a “Guardian”, an elite protector of the last remnants of humanity.”
Although the new video for Obsidian Legacy is not up yet on any video platforms as of this writing, the original Japanese trailer is up for folks to look over. However if you wish to see the new version you can head on over to the game’s Steam page to do so.
If you didn’t catch it in the trailer the game is set to sport up to three player multiplayer, and will allow all four players to run quests, countless waves, and take down dangerous monsters to save the world.
Obsidian Legacy also supports character customization that changes your character’s appearance based on gear equipped. Weaker armor sets and weapons can be strengthened at the Blacksmith to maximize the usage out of a weapon or armor set, making old gear useful in future endeavors.
If this is a game worth keeping an eye on you can head on over to obcidianlegacy.com, although I’m sure in the future the site will gain more content compared to its current state. The game is set to release on PC via Steam Early Access on January 31st.
