Fight Evil Across Three Generations in Citadale: The Legends Trilogy
Start your quest to vanquish the Dark Lord for only $8.99 on Steam
INNSBRUCK, Austria – Sept. 13, 2017 – The retro 8-bit action platformer Citadale: The Legends Trilogy is now available on Steam! Fight evil across three generations with distinct storylines, characters, levels and music in this challenging 2D action game for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
The trilogy combines the original Wii U release (Citadale: Gate of Souls) with two all-new sequels: Curse of Darkness, where Sonja’s son, Gabriel, takes up the mantle of the Demon Slayer; and Legacy of Fate, in which you’ll face the Dark Lord as Christopher – Sonja’s grandson and heir to the almighty Shadow Blade.
In the beginning…
A Dark Lord plagues the land – and only you can stop him. Play as Sonja Dorleac and bring an end to the forces of darkness by wielding the legendary Shadow Blade. Battle the creatures of the night with swords, axes, shurikens and more – and face off against horrific bosses. If you prove your strength, you can unlock alternate endings for the first two games in the series. A boss rush mode for the original game can also be unlocked if you get the “good” ending in the first game!
“I have an undying love for NES games. You could say I never grew out of them,” says Ezekiel Rage, lead developer. “Citadale: The Legends Trilogy is my humble attempt at creating a sprawling 8-bit epic in the far future of 2017. With the resurgence of retro gaming, licensed hardware replicas, remakes – and even demakes! – I feel confident that there’s always going to be a place for games like Citadale.”

- Defeat creatures of the night!
- Test your skills against face-melting difficulty.
- Spend hours looking for secrets and unlocking alternate endings.
