Legends of Ethernal Natsume Indies

Legends of Ethernal: Monster Profile

Coming home to discover his parents missing and his home destroyed, our unexpected hero must brave the wilds of Arkanys to find them. Searching high and low, this action-adventure title will bring Wilfred in contact with a myriad of living and dead creatures that inhabit his world!

Bats don’t just live in belfries – they’re a staple pest in your ongoing journey. They’re even featured in many places in Legend of Ethernal’s artwork, as seen above, and chasing poor Wilfred below.

Similar to bats, crows are a regular barrier to progress, and Wilfred’s farm was no doubt regularly harassed by these flying foes. They take on a new, more dangerous twist when he explores further out from his home than he’s ever gone before.

With multiple difficulty levels, gorgeous hand-drawn art, and beautiful, haunting music, LEGENDS OF ETHERNAL sets the scene for a compelling linear story with unique characters. Be sure to stay tuned for when we announce a release date for this Natsume Indies title, coming to PC/Mac, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.

Legends of Ethernal: Meet the Devs

Our Natsume Indies teams come in sizes bigger and smaller. We’ve talked a lot in the past about how Cosmic Defenders was made by a single developer from a game jam idea, but our recently announced partnership with Lucid Dreams Studio is a little bigger.

Co-founders Maxime Grégoire and Francis Lapierre have quite the pedigree of games under their belt — both joined the gaming dev scene in 2008, and their credits include titles like Tomb Raider, Life is Strange, Just Cause 3, Thief, and multiple games in the Far Cry series. Nice!

Located in the amazing city of Montréal, Québec, Canada, Lucid Dreams is a team of five, each with their own areas of expertise. Legends of Ethernal will be their first title together as a studio, and we’re excited to be working with them on this beautiful and exciting action title.

We’re looking forward to announcing a release date for Legends of Ethernal in the coming weeks – but in the meantime, you can wishlist the game and play the demo by visiting the game’s Steam Page

Join Wilfred on his journey to find his lost family when LEGENDS OF ETHERNAL launches on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this fall. Be sure to stay tuned to the Natsume Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more upcoming details on the game~

Legends of Ethernal Story Details

We’re excited to be revealing a little more about the tale of Wilfred, the main character in the upcoming Natsume Indies title! Developed by Lucid Dreams Studio, Legends of Ethernal will be launching on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC/MacOS this fall.

It was a lazy summer day like any other for Wilfred… However, after returning home, he finds his house ransacked, and his parents gone…

Who or what has taken them? And to where? Wilfred puts his fears aside and sets off on an adventure to find them, an adventure that will span his entirely world.

Arkanys is a land of many creatures: the majestic Jarkens, birthed from the sap of Mehdhun Tree, often live as long as a millennium. The Brüwigs: An amphibious folk who are skilled swimmers with strong lungs. Their sturdy lungs are likely a reason for their favored weapons: blowguns, with which they can use to fire darts over long distances.

The haunting Dakrei: An omnivorous, venomous insect-like race with a huge queen as their leader. Wilfred will come face to face with these creatures — and more — in the world of Legends of Ethernal. But who is friend? And who is foe? All shall be revealed in time…

In Legends of Ethernal, it is up to you to uncover the truth about your parents’ disappearance. Explore beautiful hand-crafted environments, solve challenging puzzles, and battle frightening creatures.

Using the crafting power of ether, new powers and weapons will be unlocked to you, allowing you to explore more and more of the world of Arkanys!

If you missed the Ethernal Dev Diary last month, now’s the perfect time to catch up!

The team at Lucid Dreams Studio spent countless hours creating Wilfred’s world of Arkanys and developing its lore. Legends of Ethernal is a 2D adventure game with challenging gameplay but it also tells a compelling story that immerses the player in Arkanys through Wilfred’s courageous adventure.

With each boss defeated, NPC met, and level up, players unravel the truth behind his mysterious parents’ disappearance.

We look forward to revealing more about the game in upcoming posts! Be sure to stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more sneak peeks.
