Tails of Iron, the upcoming RPG adventure from indie publishing house United Label, just dropped a new gameplay trailer, revealing several of the game’s stunning environments while also giving a flavor of the epic battles in store. Narrated by the iconic Doug Cockle (Geralt of Rivia, The Witcher), today’s cinematic introduces players to a charming yet gritty world of fiendish croakers, menacing swamps and lethal weaponry.
United Label also announced the title’s release date – fans of the genre won’t have to wait much longer to experience the beautiful, hand-drawn adventures of Redgi, as Tails of Iron is set to launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on Sept. 17, 2021.
In today’s ‘Welcome to the Kingdom’ teaser trailer, players can witness for the first time Tails of Iron’s punishingly brutal, souls-like inspired combat. Doug Cockle’s grisly voice showcases the game’s range of environments along with several of the merciless enemies from Greenwart’s Frog Clan.
Created by indie development team Odd Bug Studio and published by United Label, Tails of Iron takes players on an epic adventure as Redgi, heir of the Rat Throne.
