TOKYO – June 21, 2021.
“ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights“, the dark fantasy metroidvania fairy tale from publisher Binary Haze Interactive, launches this morning on Nintendo Switch™ in most of the world simultaneously alongside its v1.0 graduation out of Steam Early Access for Windows PC. The European Nintendo Switch version will become available at 24:00 CEST tonight.
Developers Live Wire, Adglobe Tokyo and Adglobe Montreal Studio add five gorgeously hand illustrated new areas for the v1.0 update, bringing the total up to eight. Each additional environment offers challenging new bosses and mysterious secrets to uncover.
The ENDER LILIES soundtrack also releases today on streaming services Spotify and Apple Music, as well as on storefronts iTunes and Amazon Music, and Steam as a DLC. Composed by Mili, a veteran musical group with credits on anime shows such as Ghost in the Shell and Goblin Slayer and rhythm games with millions of fans like Cytus and Deemo, the ENDER LILIES soundtrack sets a hauntingly melancholy stage for the narrative.
Awaken in a cathedral, fight your way past the horrors lying in wait within, and step out into a cursed rain devastating the kingdom of Land’s End. Guide priestess Lily safely past the blighted undead, formerly happy residents of her homeland, on a quest to find the source of the rain of death and end it once and for all.
Defeat former friends turned deadly bosses, then exorcise them of the blight to bring them into your party as equippable companion spirits. Mix and match these lost and found souls to create an ethereal bodyguard squad wielding massive clubs, magical bullet hell volleys, and other devastating skills to overcome challenges and traverse a world painted in a Japanese dark fantasy aesthetic.
“ENDER LILIES draws from many inspirations, but the end product is a wholly unique metroidvania that appeals to fans of the genre while welcoming less experienced action RPG players into the fold,” said Hiroyuki Kobayashi, CEO, Binary Haze Interactive.
“We’ve already had so much positive feedback in Early Access and look forward to seeing how players enjoy the full story now that it’s in their hands.”
