Today developer Poppy Works and publisher Ziggurat Interactive released another gameplay trailer of the upcoming 2.5D character action game Slave Zero X.

The trailer focuses on showcasing more of the game's action, but the primary lens is on the "Calamities," the closest servants of our arch-enemy the Sovereign Khan. Doubtlessly, they will be rather challenging bosses. 


You can check it out below and the previous trailer showcased a few days ago, focusing on the super-stylish action. Incidentally, a demo is already playable and available on Steam

Slave Zero X is coming at some point in the future for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. If you'd like to read more, you can read our preview from PAX East, in which our Austin Suther described it as a challenging game but also gratifying to learn, on top of being beautiful, which I think we can all agree about.

If the name rings a bell, it's because it's set in the same dystopian world as the 1999 classic Slave Zero by Infogames. You can read a brief description below.


"From the top of Megacity S1-9, the Sovereign Khan rules with fists of iron and flesh. Beneath the city’s rotting foundations, a vengeful warrior embarks on a journey to murder him. 4 years prior to the events of Slave Zero, Slave Zero X brings new life to a world where horrific, living machines known as Slaves are primed to become the latest tools of war in humanity’s long and bloody history. A secret band of warriors known as The Guardians hope to stop these biomecha from being unleashed upon the world, but one swordsman among their ranks has a different idea: use the enemy’s own weapon against them. By merging with a stolen Slave Unit Prototype, Shou will become a furious Devil in pursuit of killing a false God."
