Developer Kanipro Games and publisher eastasiasoft will be launching their sidescrolling action platformer title ‘Violet Wisteria’ across PlayStation, the Nintendo Switch (US/EU/JP), and Xbox consoles this week, on the 13th of March. The game will retail at US$14.99 / €14.99.

Take on the role of a magical heroine and slash your way through fantasy and the cryptic in this nostalgia-inducing sidescroller.

Return to the style of Japanese fantasy platformers from the ’80s and ’90s as you take command of brave heroine Wisteria Asagiri on her quest to save Earth, the Higher Realm and the Under-Realms from the dark wizard Maskandes! Violet Wisteria is a side-scrolling action platformer with a unique tri-color attack system. Requiring quick judgment and precision, this system allows Wisteria to execute sword slashes and thrusts based on an enemy’s color, where only the correct attack will strike true.

Enemy colors are randomized to keep players on their toes across 8 carefully crafted stages, each leading up to an exciting boss battle! Travel between dimensions, from floating islands and serene forests to ruined cityscapes and the ends of the cosmos, wielding your sword for the sake of peace and justice!


  • Take the role of a magical heroine inspired by classic Japanese fantasy games, anime and manga!
  • Slash your way through mystical landscapes and starfields in nostalgic side-scrolling style.
  • Use the tri-color attack system to strategically take down various enemy types!
  • Enjoy an empowering narrative told through pixel art cutscenes.
  • Face off against tricky bosses and end their rule of terror!

I’m oddly mesmerized by the 3 frame run animation.

There’s something nostalgic about this.
