We’ve got a fresh look at upcoming VR JRPG, Ruins Magus, straight from the Upload VR Showcase.
Developer Character Bank debuted a brand new look at the game during our event today, featuring new gameplay clips. Check the video out below.
New Ruins Magus Trailer Revealed
In the clip, we get an overview of the game’s world and story, revealing that you play as a wizard that explores the ruins of a city called Grand Amnis. The game’s story will be told across 26 chapters that mix up plot-driven sequences akin to a visual novel with more active combat.
We also get a closer look at the latter feature. At certain points in the game, players will face off with ancient threats known as Guardians. You’ll take them down using magical attacks and defending yourself with parries and dodge moves.
Character Bank says the footage on display here reflects what you can expect to see in the Quest 2 version of the game, which should match up with the PC VR version too.
Ruins Magus is set to release with Japanese and English language support, though Character Bank is also running a Kickstarter to enable more localizations for the game. Currently, Ruins Magus is expected to launch this winter, though more specifics will be revealed at a later date.
