What’s better than a Metroidvania sidescroller? One where you play as a cat. Hunter’s Legacy is just such a game, and within a week it’ll claw its way onto Nintendo Switch in an enhanced version developer Lienzo calls the “Purrfect Edition.”
Embark on a feline-filled quest set in an action-packed fantasy universe brimming with fierce enemies, intense sword-fighting, and the classic feeling of a Metroidvania adventure! Hunter’s Legacy is a 2D platformer where you control Ikki, a powerful huntress cat equipped with twin swords, a bow, and magical abilities, who must save the Kingdom of Iripur from the evil Morodir. Explore all regions of this fantastical open world kingdom, from peaceful forests to snowed volcanos, while slashing your enemies with your mighty twin swords, and follow the legacy of the legendary hunter.
In the Purrfect Edition (you have to say it like Eartha Kitt would….”purrrrrrrrrrrfect,” with a rolling R), players get brand new story sequences, additional character dialogue, new animations, an updated level design, a brand new mini-map feature, improved melee combat, and a new game plus mode. So if you never played the game, you have a lot to look forward to.
Hunter’s Legacy: Purrfect Edition will be out on the Nintendo eShop December 13, at a price of $6.99. Don’t keep this cat waiting.
