Devolver Digital, the publisher behind Hotline Miami and Shadow Warrior, has revealed its latest jam Eitr, a retro hack-and-slash about Norse mythology.
Developed by the London-based Eneme Entertainment, Eitr looks like the lovechild of Sword & Sworcery and Demon's Souls. It puts players in the boots of the Shield Maiden, a woman whose fate has been cast asunder when Loki mucked about with the fate-weaving Norns' loom. Now the Shield Maiden must traverse nine world connected via the great tree Yggdrasil to set things right.
Our own Johnny Chiodini caught a look at Eitr towards the end of E3 and while he had to dash for a plane, he managed to send us the following transmission:
"Eitr is fuc**** great. Best thing I've seen all show."
Strong words, Johnny.
Eitr is due spring 2016 on PS4 and PC. Expect to see more on this soon.
