Valfaris: Mecha Therion

Big Sugar and Steel Mantis have announced Valfaris: Mecha Therion, the sequel to their hit 2D action-platformer from 2019.

Valfaris: Mecha Therion launches late 2022 for Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

While the original Valfaris was a 2D action-platformer, Mecha Therion is undergoing a bit of a genre shift. This time around, players will be battling the forces of Lord Vroll in a giant mecha, with 2.5D shmup gameplay using a variety of devastating guns and melee weapons.

You can find the announcement trailer below.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:

Therion returns as the hunt for Lord Vroll continues. Pilot an advanced machine of death and destruction in this explosive 2.5D side-scrolling shoot ‘em up, and sequel to the critically acclaimed Valfaris. Strap in and unleash mecha hell!

After escaping Valfaris, Therion’s hunt for the evil Lord Vroll has taken him across the galaxy. As the final, inevitable showdown looms, Therion harnesses the awesome combat ability of his secret weapon – Mecha Therion!

A formidable suit of weaponised metal, Mecha Therion can be equipped with an array of devastating firepower, including enemy eviscerating favourites such as Bringer of Mayhem, Skysplitter, and Therion’s trademark Hellwraith.
