One of the main reasons I bought an Xbox 360 last June was so I could finally get the chance to play the solid downloadable games like Shadow Complex. That game didn’t disappoint and I was starved for more downloadable titles of that level of quality. Finally, a similar game has come along and I find myself salivating at the prospect of playing another potentially great “Metroidvania” style of game.
Fallen Frontier definitely looks to fill that niche but with added features. Like Shadow Complex, Fallen Frontier is a side-scrolling 2D action plat-former.
Along with the usual repertoire of guns and grenades, you can check grappling hook off the list as well. Reminiscent of Contra, there will also be a co-op multiplayer mode, as is seen in the trailer above. I don’t know how I missed this one during PAX East coverage, but this is going to be one to look out for. The only downside, Fallen Frontier is not due out until sometime next year.
