Ubisoft’s stylish action-platformer Outland is slated for a “late April to early May’ release, the PlayStation Blog has revealed. A separate tweet from developer Housemarque reveals that the XBLA edition is due out “around the same time,” though no exact date was specified.
Announced last September, the title features exploration elements that have been likened to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, in addition to a polarity-driven combat system that allows players to switch between light and dark energy alignments. The concept mimics that of Dreamcast shooter Ikaruga.
The accessible yet involving gameplay, combined with stunning HD visuals on a 2D plane, is shaping up into something special. We think. Check out more screenshots after the break for a closer look.
