Renegade Kid announced their new Metroidvania-inspired sci-fi game Xeodrifter back in August, and now it's confirmed for release next week.
The story of Xeodrifter has its protagonist trapped in a cluster of four planets after his spaceship is damaged by an asteroid, and you'll need to explore the different planets (a la Metroid, finding new power-ups and abilities to help you progress) in order to find the materials needed to fix the warp core on his ship if he ever hopes to make it home.
Needless to say, if you enjoy Metroidvania and/or sci-fi titles, you'll definitely want to keep an eye out for this one. Xeodrifter is set to release on the 3DS eShop on December 11 for $9.99.
