The game is currently in development with more details slated to be released later this summer. But along with this surprise announcement was this amazing looking trailer which is all I think I need to see to make this a day one purchase. I mean, it’s Inti Creates, so. . .
We don’t know much else about Luminous Avenger iX at this time. Only that it looks amazing, is currently in development for Nintendo Switch, and serves as a reminder to me as to why I made this site. You can bet I’ll be keeping tabs on this and posting updates as they become known.
