I rarely gush, but a couple things that absolutely get me on-board are fluid sprite work and parrys. You can blame Street Fighter III for that — and seeing those things in a Metroidvania-style game has got me pretty dang excited for Dead Cells.

 

 
Seriously, look at this game in motion! I’ll reserve any real judgment for once I’ve gotten to play it, but the presentation alone has got me eager for this release. Touting itself as both a rogue-lite and a Souls-lite, this is going to be one gauntlet of a game if it lives up to the claim when it releases later this year.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
