is a tower defence / action-RPG hybrid game heading for XBLA. The game has a fairly simple back story:
Long Ago, Etheria was once a land of living legends… Throughout the ages, brave warriors across the realm stood together against the forces of evil, led by immortal beings known as the Old Ones… After a titanic struggle, these champions locked away the power of the Old Ones, inside Eternia Crystals…
These legendary heroes have recently left their younger kin in charge of the common castle chores… Bored with their dreary duties, the inexperienced pupils decide to play… And accidentally unleash an ancient force that has long been dormant!
Trendy Entertainment now introduces the Huntress, one of four hero classes that players can control as they team up with up to three friends to defend the castle from "invading beasties".
In case you are at work and can't watch the video, here are some stills showing the Huntress in action:
If you were wondering, Jimbo is a Monk, and Derek is a Squire, two of the other three classes available. The final class, the Apprentice, only appears briefly in the trailer (Blinky at 1:45), but was introduced in more detail at the end of October.Dungeon Defenders
does not have a price yet, but is expected to be released in Q1 2011.
