Chronicles of 2 Heroes: Amaterasu's Wrath is a 16-bit throwback to the days of Ninja Gaiden, and like The Messenger (which is cited as inspiration), brings a modern spin to that classic style of gameplay.

Chronicles of 2 Heroes began life as a Kickstarter project with a modest target of €10,000 euro and had raised €33,952 by the time the campaign ended on 2 July. Stretch goals to include a boss rush mode, pixel art cutscenes and extra boss fights were hit in the process.

Developer Infinity Experience has stated that Chronicles of 2 Heroes will launch on PS5 and PS4 in late 2022, although a firm release date is still forthcoming.
