ChinaJoy 2019 ramped up over the weekend, and with it another host of titles from China-based developers as the country’s biggest gaming expo is now on the verge of ending. There are tons of games that were featured over the past few days, so be sure to stick around for our coverage of everything announced at this event, especially seeing as China is starting to gain footing in video game development – and that means more great games for everyone.

The platformer genre has arguably reached a resurgence in the past few years. It is actually easily seen that the market for the niche genre is starting to get oversaturated, what with the multitudes of developers and publishers, both indie and established, releasing platformers every month or so. No complaints here if it’s a good-looking game that plays well.

One such platformer is the recently announced roguelike action game Neon Abyss from Chinese developer Veewo Games. After its previous announcement that it will be released for the Switch and PC, its ChinaJoy 2019 appearance has also confirmed its launch for the PlayStation 4.

Neon Abyss is a game that is focused on raiding dungeons, collecting loot, upgrading, and customizing your gear, then rinse and repeat. Set in a neon-laden underworld, you forge your own path, depending on how you want to proceed. Whether its unlocking new rooms, bosses, or items. Its up to you.

Aside from its dynamically generated maps, Neon Abyss also boasts over 400 items for you to mix and match, each with their own unique result to help you with your dungeon-raiding. Pets can also be acquired in the form of eggs, requiring care until they hatch and are able to assist you on your journey. Multiple characters will also be coming soon after its release. All the while, your exploring, shooting, and dodging action is complemented by the incredible electronic soundtrack from award-winning composer Min He (Princess Eun Hwa, Rift, and How to Get Away with Murder).

You can watch Neon Abyss’s flashy shooting gameplay above. No release date has been confirmed for the title yet, although its trailer hinted at a Summer 2019 release.

ChinaJoy 2019 began last Friday, and officially ended yesterday, August 5.
