Playtonic Games announced it would be rebranding as a publishing label with numerous other developers earlier this year, and its first upcoming title from that change has been announced to be Demon Turf. It's coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One sometime this year.

Developed by Fabraz, the two companies announced their collaboration in a fun new trailer. The game blends 3D environments with a 2D hero, giving the impression players are a paper cut out, making it in the real world. The mixture of the two art styles is visually striking and the gameplay trailer shows that players will be platforming, fighting, racing, taking selfies, and throwing a strop on a bench. Certainly a lot of variety there.

"Join Beebz, an ambitious demon with one goal in mind: taking over the Demon Turfs and dethroning the Demon King. She reckons the throne seats her butt much better! Blaze your way across the Demon Turfs, utilising Beebz’s medley of moves and momentum-driven combat, exploring every fiery nook and cranny for collectibles, photo opportunities and even finding a sweet spot to place your checkpoints."

Immediately, the art style has us interested, as does the platforming. Being backed by the minds who have worked on titles such as Banjo-Kazooie and Yooka-Laylee, we're hoping they're seeing something worthwhile in this, so you can count on us checking out Demon Turf when it launches sometime later this year.
