Sacred Citadel Attempts to Set the Standard for Side-Scrolling Brawler Genre

Sacred Citadel Attempts to Set the Standard for Side-Scrolling Brawler GenreDeep Silver has revealed that they are looking to set a new standard for the side-scrolling brawler genre, with new title Sacred Citadel.

They are looking to reinvent the familiar arcade feeling of classic brawlers, with lots of playable classes like the Safiri Warrior, the Ancarian Ranger and the Khukuri Shama, all of whom will have a different skill set than can be made even more unique through RPG features and collectible items. You’ll also be able to ride mounts, use war machines and spend hard-earned cash on yet more items in the world of Sacred Citadel.

Multiplayer will also be included, with three player drop-in/drop-out co-op, which is always welcome.

We’ve got a trailer for you today, showing the game off, as well as some screenshots too.

Sacred Citadel will be released in 2013 as a digital download for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Steam and Windows PC.

    I really like the art-style. It’ll have to go some way to match the brilliance of some of the genre’s classics (Streets of Rage 2, Castle Crashers, Guardian Heroes).
