For many, the opportunity to become a true hero and to fight for justice is all that is required. For others, donning the mask of the legend helps. It’s with that in which Zorro The Chronicles will come to the fore.
First announced back in 2021, this new swashbuckling adventure is now available to purchase and download on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC.
It comes from the teams at Nacon, PVP Games and BKOM Studios as the trio come together to provide players with an action-packed adventure – one that promises to be fit for the whole family.
Sword swiping, close combat, exciting exploration and intriguing immersion are all front and centre in Zorro The Chronicles, particularly as this has been put together in collaboration with Zorro Productions and the Canada Media Fund. You’d think it would therefore be pretty close to the source material.
Zorro The Chronicles has you playing as Zorro (unsurprisingly – it would be a bit crap if we couldn’t), or his sister, Ines. What plays out from there should be pretty action-packed, with a ton of swashbuckling fun, combat opportunities galore and some spectacular – and hilarious – finishing moves. It’s helped along by the fact that the visuals should be as found in the Zorro animated series.
Should you have ever wanted to leave a mark on your foes, then donning the Z-mask and utilising the tip of your sword should be the way to go.
The key game features include:
- Play as a true hero and fight for justice – You can play as Zorro or his sister, Ines. Level up your heroes’ skills by unlocking new moves.
- Become a master sword fighter! – Throw your opponents off balance with your sword skills, disarm them with a whip lash or sword strike, and pull off spectacular moves! Use your acrobatic prowess and reflexes to dodge their attacks. Then leave your mark on them by drawing a “Z” with the tip of your sword!
- Make the right choices! – Explore 18 levels and adapt your approach according to the situation and enemies. Use cunning to surprise your opponents, sneak around them and explore the surroundings, or take them on in action-filled sword fights.
- Colourful characters – Encounter a wide variety of prominent characters from the animated series Zorro The Chronicles. Some of them will get in your way and be formidable enemies, while others will help you in your fight for justice.
You’ll find Zorro The Chronicles on the Xbox Store, the PlayStation Store, the Nintendo eShop and over on PC. As this is a Nacon title, there are two Xbox versions to contend with, one that will have you playing the native Xbox One version, and another that is fully Xbox Series X|S compatible, optimised for the most powerful consoles. It’s a shame that as a publisher, Nacon continue to run this route – is Smart Delivery really beyond them? Both versions are £33.49.
Anyways, let us know how you get on working through the life of Zorro. We’ll be back with a full review soon.
