New DrinkBox Game Announced, May Be Coming to Wii U, 3DS

Slice 'em and dice 'em.

DrinkBox Studios has announced their next game, Severed.

A non-linear action-fantasy with a warrior heroine, it's explained as a cross between Mega Man, Infinity Blade, and Mike Tyson's Punch-Out. The game seems to rely on a couple of core features, including world exploration and a control scheme reliant gesture-based inputs. For example, swiping will perform both magical spells and physical attacks.

The adventure begins with the protagonist missing part of her arm, but upgrades are obtained along the journey by severing enemy flesh and attaching it to your body. Some areas may be harder to travel depending on upgrades already obtained, making areas worth exploring multiple times.

Though it is touch screen reliant, no specifics were stated as to which platforms it will be released on. However, the team is open to bring the game to platforms where it makes sense, including 3DS and Wii U. Currently, Severed's release date is scheduled for next year.
