Alonso Martin, the creator of the Metroidvania-style RPG Heart Forth, Alicia has announced that it will arrive on the PS Vita in early 2016.

Heart Forth, Alicia is described as a mix between the gameplay of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the dungeons from The Legend of Zelda, and the story of Xenogears. Packed with unlockables, upgrades, open ended gameplay paired with an engaging story, fans from the 16 and 32 bit era will be sure to enjoy this game. With the overwhelming support from the Kickstarter community, Mr. Martin was even able to recruit the famous Mega Man and Mighty No. 9 composer Manami Matsumae to produce a few tracks for the title.

In addition to screenshots, a trailer was also released and can be viewed below:

Heart Forth, Alicia is slated for an early 2016 release, but you can be sure that The Vita Lounge will be keeping up with e news on this fantastic looking game as – and when – it’s available.
