While Nintendo Switch owners may be getting a remastered Zelda entry this week, we'll also be getting our own taste of the formula. Death's Door from Devolver Digital is an Xbox console exclusive arriving on July 20, and the latest trailer shows off many Zelda influences outside of the game's combat.
If you haven't heard of Death's Door before, it's an action-adventure game in which you control a crow. You hunt down souls as a living, but it's not all doom and gloom. In fact, it has a very visually striking art style as evidenced in the trailer with a variety of environments. There's more to it than just combat encounters too, as the gameplay also showcases puzzle solving, world exploration and even item collecting that looks straight from Zelda.
Reaping souls of the dead and punching a clock might get monotonous but it's honest work for a Crow. The job gets lively when your assigned soul is stolen and you must track down a desperate thief to a realm untouched by death - where creatures grow far past their expiry and overflow with greed and power.
After E3 2021 we listed Death's Door as one of our most anticipated games from the show. If it's tickling your fancy, you can pre-order the game with a 15% discount on the Microsoft Store, so be sure to take advantage while the offer is live.
