Neon Doctrine — a leading Southeast Asian game publisher of popular indie titles such as Yuppie Psycho, The Legend of Tianding, Lamentum, and the acclaimed SIMULACRA series — today made a major game reveal at Tokyo Game Show 2023 during the Xbox Digital Broadcast. Independent developer MarsLit Games announced Ghibli-inspired fantasy adventure Altheia: The Wrath of Aferi, and it’s set to arrive on Switch in the future.
Dive into a fantastical world of magic and monsters in Altheia: The Wrath of Aferi, an adventure game inspired by The Legend of Zelda series and Studio Ghibli’s filmography.
Altheia: The Wrath of Aferi sets you off on an adventure in the dangerous world of Atarassia as Lili, a young girl devastated by her mother’s death at the hands of the mysterious, corrupting Void. As she reluctantly embraces her Guardian powers, her new-found destiny sees her form an alliance with the courageous Monk-in-training, Sadi.
Together, the two will venture into the uncharted land of Atarassia, where they’ll need to combine their wits, wills, arms, and magic to complete complex mechanical puzzles, explore winding dungeons, and battle giant monsters. In their bid to finally avenge their families, they must assume the heroic roles of Guardian and Monk and defeat the malevolent god, the Void.
The Power of Friendship!: Lili and Sadi will restore the ancient partnership between Guardians and Monks, finding that their journey through Atarassia is better together than alone
Dungeon Diving: Explore Zelda-inspired dungeons made up of beautiful temples and shrines in an effort to befriend the spirits that live within them
Mix Magic and Martial Arts: Combine the Guardian’s martial arts with the Monk’s magical abilities to take on enemies that can’t be defeated alone
