Deck 13 and developer Matthias Lindas have announced that their upcoming mech-laden JRPG Chained Echoes will feature music from popular mathcore band ZILF. Check out an announcement trailer for the partnership below!
As seen above, in a glorious affair, the collaboration is melded with one of the minigames present within Chained Echoes, that of positively terrific turtle racing. Shell-fless with their contribution, ZILF was asked to provide 15 seconds of music for the title, and jumped at the opportunity, stating that writing the backing track for the minigame itself was “…the most ZILF thing we’ve ever heard.” Nothing slow and steady about this one, players!
Though details on Chained Echoes story are light, the title promises to hearken back to pixel JRPGs of yesteryear, infused with modern innovation, promising a world free of random battles, a fast-paced combat system, and mechs which players can travel the wide world within.
Chained Echoes is set to release on Windows PC systems, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 at the end of 2021, though no specific launch date has been given. Stay tuned to RPGFan for all news Chained Echoes and RPG!
