JackQuest: Tale of the Sword, the fast-paced fantasy action platformer from publisher Blowfish Studios and developer NX Games, will slay vile creatures and embark on its epic journey on January 24 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for $9.99 USD / €9.99 / £8.99 / $14.99 AUD. The game features support for English, French, Russian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese language options.
Undertake a rescue mission to save Jack’s beloved Nara from the revolting orc Korg, who captured the fair maiden and dragged her away to his subterranean lair. Journey into the caves and discover Kuro, a spirit imprisoned inside an enchanted blade. The unlikely duo of Jack and Kuro adventure into an underground labyrinth to liberate Nara, defeat her crazed captor, and perhaps even break the curse over Kuro.
Set in a massive interconnected world, JackQuest is teeming with environmental puzzles, invaluable power-ups, special abilities, and magnificent weapons to aide Jack in surviving Korg’s hideout and the denizens therein. Alongside an army of minions standing in Jack’s way are colossal bosses that will need to be felled before our heroes realize their goals.
JackQuest doesn’t waste any time with its quick combat and steady progression. Completionists will want to explore every nook and cranny of the world to find the well-placed secrets and speedrunners will be encouraged to revisit JackQuest’s dungeons to achieve faster times.
“This is one of those games that I pick up and then can’t stop playing because I always feel like I do something meaningful each time I play,” said Ben Lee, CEO, Blowfish Studios. “JackQuest’s mix of fast-paced action and exploration makes it hard to put down, and it’s been an honor to work with NX Games to bring this game to life.”
