Dragon Marked for Death Heads to PlayStation 4 July 22

Dragon Marked for Death

Inti Creates has officially announced that 2D side-scrolling action RPG Dragon Marked for Death will be coming to PlayStation 4, along with a release date.

While leaked earlier in July, the announcement came during the Inti Creates Live presentation. As previously reported; players control one of six survivors of the Dragonblood Clan, seeking revenge against the Kingdom of Medius. Not only did they drive the clan to destruction, but they kidnapped their oracle, Amica.

After forming a pact with the Astral Dragon Atruum, players gain a wide variety of skills to explore levels and beat down foes. Players can also team-up in online co-op. Each character also has customizable colors, and Japanese voice actors.

Based on the previous leak featuring English text, we suspect this announced date will be worldwide.

You can find the announcement at 47:12 below. The content appears similar to this English trailer, albeit in Japanese.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

Dragon Marked For Death is a side-scrolling 2D action RPG that can played solo or with up to four players in online multiplayer.

You play as the survivors of the Dragonblood Clan who set out to take revenge on the Kingdom of Medius, who destroyed their home and captured the Dragonblood Oracle, Amica. To obtain the power they need to enact their revenge, they forge a pact with the Astral Dragon Atruum.

Use your newly acquired powers to take on quests from villagers and raise your status in the kingdom. How you perform in these quests can have a direct effect on the game’s final outcome.

Quests aren’t all about defeating enemies, though. You’ll guard a ship’s passengers from monsters, search for hidden treasure, rescue a princess from a castle under siege, and a lot more!

Choose from four playable characters from the start (Empress, Warrior, Shinobi, Witch) and two characters that are unlocked once certain in-game conditions are met (Oracle, Bandit) to defeat your enemies, gain experience, and level up. You’ll receive points as you level up that can increase your attack power, defense, agility, and other parameters. Customize your character in a way that best suits your individual playstyle!

Team up with up to four players from all over the world in online co-op multiplayer action. By strategizing and working together with your party, you’ll be able to achieve even greater results and reap even better rewards!

Get ready to experience the unique, dark fantasy world of the Dragonblood Clan in this intense 2D action-RPG!

Dragon Marked for Death is available on Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, and July 22nd on PlayStation 4. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the game here (we highly recommend it!)
