Grim Guardians: Demon Purge is a 2D sidescrolling Metroidvania title we have had our eye on for a little while now, one that has been re-piquing our interest with every new snippet of gameplay. Today we got a release date announcement; the demon-slaying Kamizono slayers bring their crusade against the darkness to PS5 and PS4 on 23rd February.

Players can switch between the gun-toting Shinobu and the more melee-focused Maya with the push of a button, allowing for adaptation on the fly, or can play as either with a friend in local co-op. With killer pixel art and what looks to be fast and demanding platforming action, there is a lot to like on display here.
