UPDATE: The Kickstarter campaign for Infinity Knights: Xross launched as planned on June 25th and, as of June 27th, has reached over $32,000 USD of its $36,696 goal with over 500 backers so far. The game raised $25,000 in less than 16 hours.

Australia-based indie developer Timesea Studio has announced Infinity Knights: Xross, a couch co-op action RPG for up to three players, inspired by classic titles from the ’90s pixel art era. The title is planned for release on PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in late 2025. If you want to give your support, Timesea Studio will launch a Kickstarter campaign on June 25th.

For now, here’s the announcement trailer.

Does the trailer music sound similar to some old titles you’ve played? Well, that’s because “Going to the Eternal” is by Hiroki Kikuta, who is on board to compose the soundtrack for Infinity Knights: Xross. For those who aren’t good with recalling names, he is the composer of beloved titles such as Secret of Mana, Indivisible, Soukaigi, and Koudelka.

On first impression, Infinity Knights: Xross is clearly a love letter to classic RPG fans. It’s being developed by three brothers who share a passion for video games like Dark Cloud, Final Fantasy XI, and the Mana series. Don’t be fooled by the old-school exterior, though; Infinity Knights: Xross will incorporate some modern features into its gameplay.

Saxon Goodrick, one of the three brothers that make up Timesea Studio, had this to say about the game.

There always seemed to be a missing pixel game from our childhood that involved dynamically evolving and strategic, active combat, and we hope to bring that to our audiences through Infinity Knights: Xross! We were inspired by titles such as Dark Cloud, Final Fantasy XI, and the Mana series to create something that combined the best parts of all our favorite games. We are genuinely excited to use our wealth of gaming experience to create a new, old-school RPG with the benefits of modern qualities of life.

Infinity Knights: Xross Features

The Steam page provides an overview of the key features.

  • Up to 3-player couch co-op Action-Adventure RPG styled nostalgically and respectfully after SNES classics with all the benefits of the modern era of gaming. This game can be played single player, with an additional two allies (player or CPU).
  • Finely tuned combat that adapts to your play as you roam a world filled with enemies. A hybrid hack-and-slash puzzle solver. Change elements and weapons mid-combo to amplify your damage, sync with your allies to combine attacks and boosts, manipulate special abilities to debilitate your opponents… all of this and more to topple some of the many unique bosses, dungeons, and trials that will challenge you in Infinity Knights: Xross.
  • Explore a diverse selection of storylines about immortality, each influenced by cultural myths from around the world. Manipulate death with the power of the Armaments, creating thought provoking stories and unique situations!
  • Choose from the many playable characters to adventure out from the Kingdom and fight your way to the edges of the realm. Explore unique biomes and both hand-crafted and randomly generated dungeons.
  • Enhance, expand and develop the Kingdom with the treasures you bring back to unlock new characters, items, quests, and abilities! Woodcut, mine, fish, farm herbs, craft potions, smith weapon upgrades, and more as a respite and alternative to combat. Try your hand at the latest craze in the Kingdom, Gem Break!
  • Quality of life details, including adaptive difficulty, customizable UI, and pre-set modes such as speed runs and randomisers.
  • Accessibility: We are approaching difficulty and immersion differently, and this game will be as accessible and playable as possible. We want everyone to feel like they can play our games.


Infinity Knights: Xross is slated to release in late 2025 for PS5, Switch, and PC via Steam. If you’re as excited as I am, keep an eye on the Kickstarter page to support the team when the campaign launches on June 25th.
