A playable demo for Inti Creates Metroidvania styled Action-RPG YOHANE THE PARHELION -BLAZE in the DEEPBLUE- is now available to download on Steam worldwide. The same demo is also available to download from the Japanese Nintendo eShop (and is playable in English).
Yohane the Parhelion is an official spin-off of “Love Live! Sunshine” and sees players take control of Yohane as she ventures into a mysterious dungeon alongside her partner Lailaps. As part of this adventure she must challenge the monster-infested labyrinth in order to rescue her missing friends, and in order to do this Yohane will collect resources and build new tools (equipment) that will aid her in the journey. The playable demo will allow players to explore a small portion of the game, including encounter bosses and develop new equipment.
About: When an undersea dungeon suddenly surfaces in the ocean near Numazu, it becomes the talk of the town. Several of Yohane’s curious friends venture inside to investigate. However, not a single one has returned from the labyrinth… In order to rescue her friends, Yohane herself must brave the depths. She’ll encounter fierce challenges, such as monstrous fish and ever-changing corridors. Will Yohane be able to rescue her friends and uncover the mystery of the dungeon?
