Simultaneously Alongside Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam Versions
As revealed at The MIX’s Game Dev Direct, Klang 2, the rhythm-action game with hypnotic beats and high-speed combat from publisher Ratalaika Games and developer Tinimations, will dash to the beat on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S as a native app. These will launch alongside the previously announced Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam for Windows PC editions in Q3 2021.
Strike enemies in rhythm with a mighty tuneblade. Sense the cadence of incoming attacks across 30 handcrafted stages with semi-procedural elements. Defeat powerful bosses who can alter the fabric of a universe formed around melody. Strive for perfection, taking on six sections of increasingly difficult songs at both normal speed and unlockable faster versions of each using mouse and keyboard, gamepad, drawing tablet or touch controls.
Crystal caves and ice cream deserts depicted in a techno-greek art style, with inspiration drawn from synthwave, musical symbolism and Mediterranean sculptures, set a beautiful backdrop for the pulsing journey. Follow the sound of 30 intense EDM tunes from lead audio collaborator bLiNd as well as Otographic Music, City Girl, James Landino, and other artists down a narrative path exploring Klang’s past, the darkest corners of his mind, and what comes next.
“Klang 2’s gripping story will flesh out the details laid out in the original Klang while providing an improved rhythm-action experience everyone will love,” said Tom-Ivar Arntzen, Tinimations founder and solo developer of Klang 2. “I’ve listened to feedback from players and fine-tuned the gameplay, focusing on what players loved most and making it even better.”
Klang 2 will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam for Windows PC in Q3 2021. The game will support English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese on all platforms, with Russian, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified) available as well on Steam for Windows PC.
