Severed Release Date Announcement Trailer

Get ready to explore a world full of severed limbs, nightmarish creatures and ruined villages: Independent video game developer Drinkbox Studios announced today that it is bringing the colorful and strange world of its highly anticipated action fantasy game Severed to the PlayStation®Vita system on April 26th for $14.99 USD (€14.99/£11.99 in EU regions).

In Severed players take control of a one-armed warrior named Sasha, wielding a living sword on her journey through a nightmare world in search of her family. Players use swipe-based touch controls to solve puzzles, find secrets and do battle with a host of disturbing monsters, including giant floating skull wizards and beasts made of crows. During the journey, players unlock new abilities, ascend an RPG-style upgrade tree and uncover the mysteries of the dark fantasy universe Sasha finds herself in.

“Since its initial release we’ve always loved the PS Vita, and we’re proud to be launching our third PS Vita game,” said Graham Smith, Co-Founder of Drinkbox Studios. “We’ve spent the last two years making Severed into the best experience possible, and we really hope people enjoy the game when it arrives.”

While Severed is still a few weeks away from release, the Original Soundtrack for the game, composed by the Juno nominated YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN with special guests Pantayo, is available for streaming / download today from right HERE.
