Publisher Eastasiasoft recently announced that horror-themed fighting game Omen of Sorrow is set to release on 23 March for Nintendo Switch, PS5 and Steam PC.
The previously released Xbox versions of the game will also receive a free update at that time, which will add a story mode and cross-platform online play.
Developed by AOne Games, Omen of Sorrow brings together over a dozen monsters from classic literature and folklore and puts them mano a mano in a fighting game inspired by the arcade era.
Here’s the official breakdown of Omen of Sorrow from Eastasiasoft followed by a recent trailer:
Omen of Sorrow is a traditional 4-button fighting game featuring monsters of classic horror and literature, powered by Unreal Engine 4 and presented in 2.5D cinematic style.
In a hidden underworld ruled by creatures of the night, a new terror has awakened! Omen of Sorrow brings monsters of horror, literature and mythology together for a fighting game experience unlike any other. Inspired by numerous arcade classics but offering its own unique innovations and mature aesthetics, Omen of Sorrow positively bleeds style!
Featuring a roster inspired by such icons as Frankenstein’s monster and Egyptian high priest Imhotep, this traditional 4-button fighting game rewards or punishes players based on how aggressive their playstyle is, putting a skill-centric spin on combat while keeping the experience accessible to newcomers.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Omen of Sorrow’s 2.5D brawling spans a multitude of detailed locations with handcrafted animations and cinematic finishers, all set to a masterful soundtrack by composer Francisco Cerda.
The previously downloadable bloody countess Erzsébet now joins the main roster, alongside a massive blood dragon at her command. With a dozen vicious combatants at your command, who will you lead to victory, and who will fall to your bloodlust?
Omen of Sorrow is set to release on 23 March for Nintendo Switch, PS5 and Steam PC via each platform’s digital storefront. For those who jump in early, there will be a special 15% launch discount for a limited time.
In addition to the digital release, there are also plans for physical editions for both Nintendo Switch and PS5. These physical versions will be distributed via Playasia at the same time as the digital release.
