3D hyper action game Ultra Age will be out later this 9th September.
Published by Dangen Entertainment and Intragames, and developed by Next Stage and Visual Dart, the game will be retailing for US$29.99 for PS4 and Nintendo Switch. You can check out a demo of the game right now which lets you play up to the middle boss of Chapter 1.
There’s also a PC version coming out, but no release date has been set for this version. We had a go at the demo and it’s really promising; the controls are smooth as butter, the action gets frenetic, and the weapon-switching & collection system flows through seamlessly in-between combos you perform. Plus, the game maintains a steady 60fps during fights; not so much exploration or when there’s a ton of crystals on-screen, but combat goes by fast & stutter-free.
Check out the launch trailer, game description and key features below:
