Legends of Ethernal: Difficulty Modes

Whether you’re a grizzled veteran of the platform genre, or a mini-Mario in the making, Legends of Ethernal has a difficulty mode that’s perfect for young and old, experienced or newcomer.

Relaxed Mode

New to the platforming genre? Need some assistance? Playing with your little one? Just want to, well, relax? This mode is for you! Additional platforms are available, and enemies will be adjusted. Relaxed mode is for everyone, no matter their reasons, because we want everyone to enjoy the amazing world of Arkanys

Easy

Similar to Relaxed Mode, but with fewer additional platforms. Enemies remain slightly adjusted. For those who want a touch more challenge.

Normal

The default difficulty mode the game was created with. Balances platforming sections and enemies to be overall challenging. Expect to die occasionally.

Hard

Noticeably more challenging than Normal, enemies are demonstrably more difficult. Platforming sections have additional challenges. Expect to die regularly.

Hardcore

The Dark Souls of platfo…just kidding. Enemies are significantly more challenging. Platforming sections are grueling. Permadeath is enabled, which means if you die, you’re going back to the start of the game. You have been warned!

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: 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.

Harvest Moon: One World Main Characters

In case you missed them, we introduced both the main female and male characters you’ll be able to play in Harvest Moon: One World!

With an appetite for not only exploring the world but crops he’s never eaten before, he’s setting out on the journey of a lifetime! Along the way, he’ll farm crops, raise animals, solve problems for the local townspeople, and meet many friends – including five eligible bachelorettes that he can woo and start a family with.

Receiving a book about crops that have been lost to time, she’s now ready to take on the world! This energetic lass will be farming up a storm, caring for animals large and small, plus making new friends as she travels between many regions. Perhaps she’ll even fall in love with one of five bachelors she’ll meet along the way…? Only time will tell!

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~
