Trailer: Time and space hopping adventure XEL debuting in July

Warping its way to the Switch and PC next month, Assemble Entertainment and Tiny Roar’s XEL is looking every bit the classically-styled adventure.

Old school

Spaceship-wrecked on the striking, alien world of XEL, Reid must venture out and begin to piece together her broken memories. A callback to old-school top-down RPGs, XEL evokes the nostalgic spirit of classic Zelda titles. A true passion project from the devs, the world of XEL merges familiar ideas with updated mechanics, all woven together in an intense sci-fi mystery. The planet XEL holds a sinister secret, with darkness lurking across space and time. Aid Reid in solving the mystery of her history, lest both her and the world she’s somehow connected to be doomed.

Assemble Entertainment press release

XEL is coming up fast for the Switch and PC, landing on July 14th, 2022. But even so, you can play the first 30 minutes even sooner, thanks to the PC demo. It’s out now via Steam.
