Nocturnal: set to launch on June 7

In an exciting announcement, publisher Dear Villagers and developer Sunnyside Games have revealed that the highly anticipated side-scrolling action adventure game, Nocturnal, will be released on June 7. The game will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Players can expect to purchase the game at a price of $19.99 on consoles and $16.99 on PC.

According to Sunnyside Games co-founder Gabriel Sonderegger, the early feedback from Steam Next Fest and PAX East has been overwhelmingly positive. Sonderegger expressed his delight at finally being able to offer players the full gaming experience, stating, “We wanted Nocturnal to effortlessly flow between fast, frenetic action and hair-raising tension, with your constantly depleting host of light sources. It’s a thrilling balancing act that we think platforming fans will really get a kick out of.”

In Nocturnal, players assume the role of Ardeshir, a soldier of the Enduring Flame, who embarks on a challenging journey back to his home island of Nahran. The island is engulfed in a mysterious Mist, and Ardeshir must wield fire as a repellant to carve his way through and uncover the island’s secrets. However, the Mist is not just a passive obstacle—it relentlessly chases the protagonist, adding an element of urgency and danger to the gameplay.

Key features of Nocturnal include engaging in intense combat against various enemies that hinder progress, using fire strategically to navigate through the Mist, awakening the dormant power within Ardeshir to harness the flame, and exploring the expansive island to discover hidden abilities and locations. The game also offers a Speed-Run mode for players seeking to challenge themselves and improve their completion times.

As the release date draws near, anticipation is building among gamers eager to embark on this thrilling adventure. Nocturnal promises a unique blend of platforming, combat, and exploration, all wrapped in an atmospheric world filled with mystery and danger. Prepare to wield the power of fire and unravel the secrets of Nahran when Nocturnal launches on multiple platforms this summer.
