Nine Parchments will be launched to Xbox One on March 7, Marketing Manager Nine Parchments Kai Tuovinen announced this on Monday.
For all the co-op enthusiasts out there, Nine Parchments is a game that’s going to scratch your itch! You’ll play as one of the wizarding students of the Astral Academy, the school for Wizards in the beautiful Trine world.
As a terrible explosion rocks the Academy, all the powerful spell parchments are blown out into the world and into the hands of dangerous creatures.
Runaway apprentice wizards seize the opportunity to complete their spellbooks by going after the lost Nine Parchments. It’s your job to find the parchments if you want to earn your Wizard stripes, as students with Nine Parchments in their spellbooks can graduate as full-fledged Wizards.
As the would-be wizards rapidly acquire powerful new spells without learning proper safety measures, it’s natural their hasty progress results in plenty of deadly accidents.
Nine Parchments is a mixture of twin-stick shooting, action and light RPG elements. You can play it co-operatively with up to four people both locally and online. Friendly fire is on by default, so be prepared for some inevitable chaos when everyone starts blasting away at anything that moves.
Nine Parchments combines real-time spell-shooting action with RPG elements – level up your character and collect magical loot, filling your wardrobe with a myriad of wizard hats and powerful staves.
Not to worry, as the game also offers healing spells, which someone hopefully picks up to keep the team alive.
If you’re still not convinced, the game has a 60-minute trial of magic to lure you in.
