Look, we appreciate 8-bit era platformers have become dime a dozen during the recent PS Store boom, but sometimes an indie effort still manages to stand out from the crowd. Lords of Exile is very much one of those titles – it looks like a long lost Castlevania game for the NES from Konami, with its imposing gothic architecture and mix of hack-‘n’-slash gameplay and platforming.

There’s no release date in the trailer beyond a vague confirmation of “coming soon”, but it looks like a tidy little title, doesn’t it? One to watch, perhaps.
