It was the saddest part of the THQ death, in my opinion, knowing that the super-talented Vigil would be dismantled and that we'd likely never see the inevitable sequels to Darksiders we all deserved. But thankfully, the team lives on in a new form, and while it's not Darksiders, their new project is a property comic and Joe Mad fans have been screaming for, for a long time.
Also, true to form, Airship Syndicate -- the new studio made up of ex-Vigil members, has decided to blend the old with the new (much as they did with Darksiders), offering up a super-stylised vision of Battle Chasers as an old-school JRPG, and boy does it work.
Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a love letter to one of our favorite genres of gaming: the JRPG. We grew up playing legends like Final Fantasy, Suikoden, Chrono Trigger, and Phantasy Star. While many greats continue to come from Japan, very few western developers are creating them.
You can get a much better and more in-depth look at the project over on their Kickstarter Page, while you can also have a peak at a video embedded below.
