Nothing Grim about this announcement!

Get ready to fall in love with another stunning pixelated masterpiece. From the developer and publisher behind all three Blaster Master Zero games, the Azure Striker Gunvolt series, including all spin-offs and both Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon games, comes Grim Guardians: Demon Purge. Here’s what we know about the new title from Inti Creates:

Clearly taking creative strong inspiration from Castlevania and Mega Man, Grim Guardians: Demon Purge is a new 2D title, currently in active development. Here’s what we know about thanks to the game’s official announcement:

Grim Guardians centers around two demon hunters who return to their school after a mission only to find a demonic castle where it once stood. Players control both of the demon hunting sisters in this 2D side-scrolling action game. Players must master each of the sisters’ unique abilities and attributes to overcome the challenging stages with bosses awaiting their arrival. They’ll also be able to find new routes through each stage using the 2 characters’ abilities, keeping play throughs fresh.
Other features include 2-player co-op with special actions, extensive difficulty options with the “Style System,” unique changes on repeat plays, and most importantly the quality and challenge players have come to expect from Inti Creates titles, this time with a new gothic horror aesthetic.

The stars of Grim Guardians are the long-distance focused “Shinobu Kamizono” and the close-range brawler “Maya Kamizono.” Players will need to consider the situation when choosing which sister to control as they make their way through the castle, investigating the mystery of what happened to their school and its students.

Shinobu Kamizono (VA: Emi Uema) – Elder of the Kamizono sisters, Shinobu is brimming with confidence, but still tends to make careless mistakes. She excels at long-range attacks using her rapid-fire submachine gun, taking out her demonic foes from a safe distance!

Maya Kamizono (VA: Chinami Hashimoto) – Younger of the sisters, Maya supports her strong- willed sister from the shadows with her reliable personality. A technical close-range attacker, creating various weapons from origami. Use her various weapons to deal massive damage!

Grim Guardians: Demon Purge is planned for multiple platforms, including Nintendo Switch. No launch information has been shared at this time but a gameplay trailer can be seen below:
