Konami and Ukuza Inc have today announced the release of their brand new 2D platforming game, Skelattack.

Skelattack comes introducing an expansive Underworld filled with quirky, charming and sometimes deadly inhabitants of the afterlife. The game flips the dungeon crawler narrative on its head by casting players as the creatures, fending their land from the invading human threat. Here is the official description:

As a newly deceased member of the Underworld and resident in the happy hub of Aftervale, Skully is just getting the hang of being dead and coming to terms with being a skeleton. As he prepares for his Remembrance to understand who he was in his past life, Skully finds himself in a fight to protect his home from plundering humans from above.

In an attempt to steal the magic that kindles the spirits of the dead, the Blue Flame, the humans kidnap Aftervale’s elder skeleton, Elzedon. Together with Imber, Skully’s trusty bat friend, players will control both characters to jump, slash and flap their way through the Underworld to stop the human threat, save the Elder and protect the Blue Flame.

It’s available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC for £15.99. Check out the trailer and give us your thoughts via the comment section below.
