New Blip: Momodora: Moonlit Farewell

Momodora: Moonlit Farewell, from Bombservice, is the latest in a long running series that got its start more than a decade ago, consisting of Momodora 1-3 and a prequel entitled Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight. The studio took a break from this series of dark female-led metroidvanias and actioners to make Minoria, a dark female-led metroidvania actioner... so hey they're stickin' with what works! For those who haven't played a boatload of Momodora games (like us), the series stars two main protagonists: Momo and Dora. Dora, high priestess of Koho village, takes the lead role once again to save her village from an evil bellringer who has called forth an army of demons. The game is set five years after the events of Momodora III, and while it is built upon those foundations, it's intended to be enjoyed by veterans and newcomers alike. This metroidvania features fast combat with melee combos, a snappy dash maneuver, and projectile-based combat with a bow and arrows. As the series has grown and improved, so too has the quality of the art and animations, with this latest outing offering stunning character designs, foreboding environments, nasty-looking monsters, and menacing bosses.

The game is coming to PC, but it does not yet have an announced release date.
