Dark Fantasty 2D RPG Astra: Knights of Veda Looks Stunning, Playable at Gamescom 2023

The upcoming 2D RPG Astra: Knights of Veda looks stunning and will be heading to Gamescom 2023. Developed by FLINT and being published by HYBE IM, Astra: Knights of Veda tells the tale of a world brought into ruin and now will depend on you and several others to help defend it. Yeah, the story isn’t that original, but damn if the art style doesn’t remind me of something you’d see from Vanillaware. At first, I even thought it was from Vanillaware.

FLINT is a game developer formed by persons who worked at companies such as EA Korea, NCSOFT, and NEXON, to name a few. And Astra: Knights of Veda, a title that’s been in development for over seven years, will be the company’s “Grand Masterpiece,” as they call it.

It is very meaningful in a sense that we get to introduce the strengths of ASTRA: Knights of Veda, such as solid and rich stories and unique action quality, to gamers around the world. Starting with participating at Gamescom, we will do our best to expand communication points with gamers both domestic and international and launch the game within this year. Please look forward to it.” – Kim Young-mo, FLINT CEO

Astra: Knights of Veda has been designed to appeal to those who enjoy side-scrolling action RPG games and beat ’em up titles. So, it looks this title may draw the attention of those who play Dungeon Fighter Online and similar games. This is my first time hearing about the game, I’m already interested in it. Still, I wish we got to see some gameplay, not just scenes from the game. That said, if you’re heading to Gamecom 2023, you’ll be able to get some hands-on with the game by heading over to booth C-038.

Astra: Knights of Veda will be launched for iOS, Android Devices, and PC (Steam) in Q4 2023.
